Low sugar-No sugar beverages with NO after taste

Recommended Posts

I know that all of our tastes differ, but I’m just curious about what low sugar (5g or less) or sugar free beverages people have found that actually taste good. Especially with NO after taste?!

The things I drink are


fruit infused water: probably not exactly what you're looking for, but if you get a water bottle with a fruit infuser in it, you can put fruit in your water to flavor it. I'll use frozen fruit - less flavor, but cools your drink and is cheaper.

Plain iced tea (so not the stuff you buy in bottles - which often has sugar &/or aftertaste, but brew on your own)

Decaf coffee with milk.

Diet Snapple Tea...I combine half Water, half tea in a fruit diffuser water bottle with lemon and lime and freeze to make it a little icy.

I am 6 years post-op RNY gastric bypass. Like you said everyone has different taste. The following are the variety of drinks that I have found enjoyable.

Water with ice cubes.

No sugar Crystal Light [not a great fan but I served me well at the very beginning when I had to drink something with some flavor and no sugar.]

Fine English teas such as "Royal Wedding Tea" by Harney and Sons.

A drink called "Bai" that comes in bottles. [I generally buy these by the case when they are on sale.]

Hot cocoa during the winter [I use Nestle Nesquick (No Sugar Added) with milk]

Hot Lipton tea with a half a squeezed lemon to which I added a no calorie/low calorie sweetener.

And since I am several years post-op and in the Maintenance mode, I have integrated drinking a cup of coffee each morning into my routine. I sweeten it with a no calorie/low calorie sweetener and add a couple tablespoons of whipped cream to the top. The whipped cream I make from scratch using heavy whipping cream and for a whip cream sweetener I use Spenda. I have found that it is a good way to start my mornings because it contains fats which minimize hunger.

I live on this stuff. No sweeteners, just crystallized juice so I get the flavor without the mess and they are easy to chuck in a ziplock in my bag so I always have them. I have the lemon, orange (my fav) and lime. I get them in the baking aisle at the grocery store but Amazon has them. I put 1 packet in my 24 oz insulated Water bottle. Helps me avoid all the artificial sweeteners and chemicals in a lot of the no calorie drinks

      I am so very excited! My sister is here with me and my son. I am so excited. My anesthesiologist called me tonight to discuss our plans for tomorrow. I am not feeling nervous at all. Just excited for the future!
      I did buy a few bottles of CFpreop which is really suppose to help you stay hydrated. It's pricey but I feel it's worth it. I tried the Watermelon tonight. I have to stop all liquids after midnight and I go into the hospital at 5:30am for check in. My surgery is at 8am.
      SO HAPPY for this journey!
      You can get the CFpreop on Amazon if anyone is interested. It comes in Watermelon and White Grape.

      2 Days Till Surgery!   It's time! Time to start my clear liquids! I am prepared! Tomorrow I will only take in clear protein, bone broth and jello for the next two days.   My surgery will be done on Monday, December 9th at 8:00 AM. I have to be at the hospital at 5:30 AM (EWWW) but who cares? LOL. Funny how you don't get all upset about doing things that are not so fun when you are doing it for a purpose! . I don't plan on doing much this weekend. I have one errand to do and after that is over I will return to my hotel room and go into prayer and meditation. Believer or not, you got to do what you need to do in order to get your heart and mind in a healthy place. . I have a Pre-Op drink I ordered that is supposed to really help your body hydrate before surgery. It's not in the photo just because I don't have it in my hands yet. I will put photos of it up when I get it. . All I can think about it how blessed I am to be able to get this done. I know how it feels to be healthy and happy then have it snatched away. It makes this all the more joyful for me. . So, it's time to lay it down and start letting my mind process what we are getting ready to do. . By the way...funny story. My doc said he had to cancel a surgery because his patient said she thought "Mashed Potatoes" was a clear food! Um, there will be no mashed potatoes for me! LOL This is HAPPENING! . Last thought for today: I knew when they drew my blood yesterday it was going to leave a nasty bruise and I was right. I am so sensitive to that kind of stuff.

      Cold no.2 since surgery. The funny part is now Ive lost my voice. I feel better in my sinuses now, but my voice is 90% gone. Losing your voice as a person who talks as a teacher for a living is so funny. You feel normal and when you speak, nothing comes out. I hope it goes over by Monday, but if it doesn't oh well. Ill be at school and cant talk to the students. Oh gee darn.

        I hope it gets better. I sing and I know how it is to lose your voice. I always get scared that it won't come back. LOL but it always does. Try Fisherman's Friend. It's nasty but it works. You can find it on amazon.

        Ohh..I love fisherman's friend..especially the sugar-free ones. Here, we can get it in all the shops. They are strong though.

      Got my haircut today and its always amazing how much better i feel afterwards.
      i have always considered it an odd thing that i enjoy a haircut so much.
      The smell of the barbershop (no salons allowed) and the whole scissors and clippers feel and sound is so relaxing.
      I have had the same barber since 1987 and i am not sure how i will handle it if that guy ever dares to die on me. I am pretty sure that the magazines on the bottom of the stack are the same ones from my first visit.
      just started Ron Powers -Mark Twain Biography- enjoying it
