Crystal Light Pure Review

I know a lot of us are looking for great tasting drinks without a lot of sugar and calories, and as a diabetic that's especially important to me. Drinking water is great, but after awhile it can get old! A girl needs options for ways to stay hydrated! I already enjoy several flavors of Crystal Light at home, their teas are my favorite!

When I found out that their new product Crystal Light Pure contains no artificial sweeteners, flavors or preservatives I was really excited! It is sweetened with sugar and TruviaTM, an all-natural, no-calorie sweetener derived from the stevia plant, and it is colored and flavored with natural ingredients. Translation for me? I can enjoy a flavorful beverege and the grape flavor has only got 3g of carbs per serving, for a total of 6g per 16.9 ounce bottle of water.

Crystal Light Pure offers a naturally sweetened, great-tasting way for women to enjoy drinking the water they need and contains just 15 calories per 8 fl. oz. serving (one/half stick), compared to other leading fitness beverages which contain 10 to 50 calories for a similar serving size. (Compared to 10 calories in Propel, 20 calories in G2 and 50 calories in Gatorade per 8 fl. oz. serving) Each Crystal Light Pure packet will transform a 16.9-ounce bottle or glass of water into a light, refreshing beverage.
  • It is available in five delicious flavors: Grape, Strawberry Kiwi, Tropical Blend, Mixed Berry and Lemonade.
  • Two flavors (Grape and Strawberry Kiwi) contain electrolytes to help aid hydration during light physical activity when you consume one packet (two servings). This makes it a perfect partner to add to your healthy, active lifestyle.
  • Crystal Light Pure flavors contain 4 grams of sugar per serving.
  • Crystal Light Pure comes in convenient On The Go packages.
I really love the On The Go Packages, for quickly adding to either a bottle or glass of water. I lke to slip one on my purse. Now I've always got something onhand when I'm out visiting friends and family, who aren't always prepared for thirsty diabetics with appropriate drinks! I also also like to stash a few in my car for back up. The portability really makes this a great product! I also really like knowing that the pretty color the drink turns is the result of natural ingredients.

I got the grape to sample and really like the flavor, but Strawberry Kiwi is probably my favorite followed by Lemonade. Those are just flavors I'd more naturally gravitate toward, but grape is definitely a refreshing change of pace. I have and will continue to purchase Crystal Light Pure in the future!

This is my favorite, I drink it all day everyday. I think a full pack is too strong so only do a half. I also love the strawberry kiwi followed by the lemonade:)
