Nutrition and Diet Specialist Nur Ecem Baydı Ozman talked about the hidden dangers in summer drinks and gave advice on 7 summer drinks that are both healthy and refreshing.

In the sweltering heat of summer, we can often be attracted to the taste and appearance of the drinks we consume to cool off. Our tendency to consume drinks that are not at all innocent may increase with the thought that they will both quench our thirst and recover our falling blood sugar. But beware! Nur Ecem Baydı Ozman, Nutrition and Diet Specialist of Acıbadem Kozyatağı Hospital, said, “Perhaps most of us give the biggest test in summer with refreshing, delicious but high-calorie drinks. Flavored, syrupy, cola drinks containing high sugar have no nutritional value and can cause both weight gain and diseases such as liver fat and diabetes. Again, frequently consumed caffeinated beverages such as tea and coffee cause water excretion from the body. For this reason, healthy adults should consume at least 2 liters of water a day and turn to healthy drinks while meeting their fluid needs. Nutrition and Diet Specialist Nur Ecem Baydı Ozman explained the hidden dangers in summer drinks and gave recipes for 7 summer drinks that are both healthy and refreshing.

If you have diabetes or blood sugar regulation problems, it is beneficial to consume 2-3 balls of walnuts or 8-10 raw almonds/hazelnuts without adding honey.

Watermelon mineral water

Although watermelon is known as a light fruit with high water content, it has a very high glycemic index, that is, the rate of raising blood sugar. For this reason, it is beneficial for diabetics to consume this fruit with a small slice of cheese or 1-2 whole walnuts, provided that it is not frequent, in order to keep blood sugar in balance.

Coconut flavored cold coffee

The saturated fats they contain in both milk and coconut can lead to deterioration of vascular health. For this reason, it is beneficial for people who already have cardiovascular disease or high cholesterol to limit their saturated fat intake.

Mint kefir

Nutrition and Diet Specialist Nur Ecem Baydı Ozman said, “Kefir is not only a gut-friendly beverage with its probiotic effect, but also contributes to daily calcium and protein intake, keeping you full for a long time. Especially people who do not like kefir and have never tried it. Dilute ¾ cup of kefir with half a tea glass of water. Add 1 teaspoon of dried mint and mix. During the summer months, you will have a healthy drink that will refresh you and help you compensate for the increased fluid and mineral losses.

Cold green tea with lemon

Green tea helps to relieve edema. It is both edematous and healthy and refreshing. If you do not have diabetes or problems with blood sugar regulation, you can add 1 teaspoon of honey.

Oatmeal smoothie

Nutrition and Diet Specialist Nur Ecem Baydı Ozman said, “Due to the hot weather in summer, we often do not want to have breakfast or eat dinner. However, when we skip meals, it becomes very difficult to balance blood sugar and appetite during the day. For this reason, those who do not want to have breakfast or skip this meal can start the day by preparing an oat smoothie and a drink that is both healthy, refreshing and filling. If you are diabetic, you can consume this drink with peace of mind by choosing a fruit with a lower glycemic index instead of banana in this mixture.
