If you are craving something carbonated... Long before we went GF, I started buying sparkling juices for my girls. I figured if we were going to drink something with lots of calories, it should at least be natural! I also like seltzer water with a spritz of fruit juice. Less flavor, but way less calories too.
For a sweetener have you tried Agave I think the dark is better in most things but the light is good in Lemon or Chamomile tea. Coming from the south - I personally donít like Lipton cold brew as someone mentioned so try it before you buy it. And if I drink too much tea the tannic-acid build up and I get stomachaches and UTIs.
I am a fan of the water with lemon, ginger, mint, etc. but also the herbal teas. Celestial Seasoninngs posts which are GF and not on their website if you click on individual flavors. There are also natural sodas that have stevia and erythritol if you can tolerate those.
I make my own green tea and sweeten it with just a touch of local honey. (probably 1/4 to 1/2 tsp.) I also have a stainless steel water bottle that keeps water really cold and that has helped me drink more plain water. I consider my smoothies to be a meal rather than a beverage and I use rice and egg white protein in mine as I react to any dairy products. There are plenty of gluten free drinks.

I don't quite follow the "connection" between celiac and what beverages to drink, but I drink tea, coffee, V8 juice, water. I've never been a soda drinker and while I used to drink a lot of fruit juice, I stopped when I realized drinking so many calories was a problem. I love smoothies, but do not consider that to be a beverage.

The only tea I have found to contain any grain was an herbal tea that had barley malt in it. I have not had a problem with any of the chai tea, Constant Comment, Stash herbal teas, etc. Just remember that if a tea has "extra" spices or flavorings, to read the label carefully. Whey protein is a by-product of cheese. As always, just be sure to check the label for any "added" products.
Smoothies and iced tea are great ideas.. i never even thought of iced tea.. always just assume the powdered mixes. But iced tea with the caffeine does not aggravate the stomach? and liptons is gluten free? I have read a lot of teas contain grain products. And does anyone know if whey protein is save to drink being gf?
Hi everyone! :) What does everyone drink these days being celiac? I have a incredible intolerance to diet products with any sweetners, even gum! Just wondering if anyone has some ideas of beverages that are not loaded in calories and carbs but dont bother the tummy! Getting pretty bored of water, water with lemon, water with ginger ect.. Thanks for the input!
