It’s that fun celebration time called Fat Tuesday or Mardi Gras.  It falls on March 4 this year in 2014.  Why spoil it with high fat, high calorie, or added sugar consumption?   I have come up with a simple non-fat, low calorie, no added sugar beverage that I have named, Orange Lite Delight.  It only requires two ingredients.  It is healthy.  It is high in Vitamin C, Potassium, and Thiamine.  It is light and refreshing.

Orange Lite Delight

Ingredients: 
  • One large, fresh orange
  • 1/2 cup of S. Pellegrino, or Perrier, or another sparkling water
Procedure:
  • Cut orange in half. 
  • Use a manual citrus juicer to extract the orange juice.
  • Pour squeezed orange juice into a glass.
  • Pour 1/2 cup of sparkling water over orange juice in glass.
  • Add ice cubes or crushed ice to beverage.
Yields one serving.
Enjoy!
