A Healthy Pink Drink

It's Pink Saturday once again! This event is hosted weekly by Beverly at How Sweet the Sound. Please visit her for lots of pink inspiration and an opportunity to meet some very friendly bloggers! Thank you Beverly for doing this!

This week I'd like to tell you about a new drink my sister told me about. She brought me one to try out on our morning walk, and I love it! It's called
Fuze Empower! It tastes great and only has 20 calories for the entire 18.5 Fluid ounces which is 2 servings.


From the web I found this information:

Antioxidants. Low calorie. Low sugar. Pomegranate acai berry. Only 10 calories per serving. 2 g Carbs per serving. Polyphenols - 65 mg. Powerful antioxidants that can protect cell membranes and cellular DNA from the damaging effects of free radical induced oxidative damage. Regular consumption of polyphenols helps maintain cardiovascular function in healthy individuals. Chromium - 41 mcg. A micronutrient known to improve the amount of energy you get from food. Vitamin C - 138 mg. An antioxidant essential for vision, growth and healthy skin. Super CitriMax - 462 mg. Helps users maintain a normal appetite and increase energy in healthy individuals. Helps support a healthy metabolism. L-Carnitine - 46 mg. An amino acid which boosts energy.

Sounds really healthy doesn't it? It comes in packages of 12 at Sam's club and tastes wonderful..not too sweet...just right in fact! And not only that but the company has joined in the Race for the Cure to raise awareness and educate women about breast cancer.

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a wonderful Pink Saturday!

Jennifer said...

I tell you I love it when something is Pink, but when it has added benifits. It makes it more desirable for me to buy!
Have a great Pink Day!

I bought a Fuze in the checkout line at Walmart last night. When I got home Todd said, "I see you had to buy one of those drinks that Diane blogged about." So he secretly reads your blog! How funny is that!

BTW, we are having the taco soup tonite! Yummy!

Hi Diane
Happy Belated Pink Saturday
That sounds like a very healthy drink! Lots of goodies in there. It is good for us and for a good cause too. Thank you making us aware of this!

Thank you again for the giveaway I won from you. Marc brought it for me this weekend and I've posted on it. I'm a day late in using it as a Pink Saturday post. I love them and can't wait for spring to arrive so I can test them out!

How do you feel when you drink it? Have you noticed anything different? A friend of mine suggested another type of drink and she loves it, but I didn't notice anything at all. Thanks for sharing the info. I'll look for them next time I'm at Sam's!

Hi Diane,
sorry for the belated comment, but my laptop crashed this weekend so I'm trying to catch up for Pink Saturday.

I love the Pink Drink but even more so, that you educated us about it. and that they joined the Race for the Cure!
