Marty and I generally spend Valentine’s Day at home watching enjoying our favorite movies. We’re homebodies and that’s perfect for us. To make the day a little bit special, we enjoy snacks and a Valentine’s Day mocktail like this Berry Sipper.  It’s a healthy non-alcoholic drink that features raspberries and coconut water.

Berry Sipper Valentine’s Day Mocktail

Once a month, I get together with a group of other bloggers to remake a pin we find on Pinterest to make it our own. This month, I chose a cocktail recipe I found on Tone It Up. Marty and I don’t drink so the first thing I did was to remove the alcohol. I also didn’t have a coconut water mix or a blood orange. Instead, I used regular coconut water and a normal orange. This is the “remake” of the original and it’s what Marty and I will be enjoying on Valentine’s Day. At the very last minute, I had to substitute raspberries for strawberries since my store was out of strawberries.

  • juice from one orange

  2. You can add stevia or agave if you want, but I found it sweet enough as is.

Healthy Strawberry Valentine's Day Mocktail

If you leave out the sweetener, this Valentine’s Day mocktail qualifies as Paleo so I left it out of ours. Honestly, the raspberries really do make this mocktail recipe sweet enough that I didn’t feel I needed more sweeteners. If you do add sweetener, make sure that you add stevia, agave or honey to keep it natural and healthy. The (affiliate) Ninja Blender really helps crush up the ice and make it smooth. Here are a few more easy Paleo recipes to try.
