Okay, what do you drink - just water and green smoothies? Getting pretty bland here. :rolleyes: Any suggestions?:confused:

Water is actually my favorite drink
but I also like sweet potatoe and orange juice over ice
banana and carob shakes
And any fruit frozen and blended into an iceee or slush

Well, it's only bland if you make the same green smoothie over and over. You can always spice it up with garlic, onion, cayenne, ginger, etc. Sometimes, you can actually leave the greens out and just drink a variety of fruit smoothies; There's also fresh juices of ALL kinds.. Ever had watermelon juice?

I strictly drink water except for my 1-every-weekday habit of Citrus Kombucha.

I drink only water now and on a few special occasions I indulge in a strawberry and almond milk drink with mint! it's delicious.

Only water (no carb)
SOMETIMES I have fresh pressed juices... but I actually can not afford throwing away halv of the fruit ;)
And I dont have any high-tech-drink maker... so... I still have to use my teeth ;)

Cashew, banana, carob or cacao shake

Green lemonade: a whole lemon, peel and all, through my trusty Champion juicer, three or two apples, a little piece of ginger, a little cucumber, a little celery, some parsley, kale, obviously a lot of possibilities with this and absolutely wonderful.

Mostly water. I love it, especially distilled.
I only drink water, lemon in water, herbal teas, soy milk and vege juice.
(I do like red wine too...but i will pretend that doesnt count).:p

I don't find green smoothies boring. The different varieties and fruit and green combinations alone could keep me going past my life span :)
Aside from green smoothies, since becoming raw I've stopped being a "beverage" person. I consider the smoothies a meal, and water just, well, water :)
So when people ask, "What do you do for beverages?" I feel kind of awkward answering because most people are asking based on recreational beverage consumption (colas, coffees, bottled juices, alcohol etc).

Aside from green smoothies, various lemonades; rejuvelac; various kombucha; sun-herbal iced teas, during the summer; raw "sodas."

Thanks everyone for the suggestions. Looking forward to trying a few new drinks!

Water... sorry to be so boring - but i just LOOOOVE water! In the past I have found that if I drink too many fruit smoothies - I start gaining weight for whatever reason! I have yet to try the green smoothies - need to get a blender! Good luck on your quest to find something different and yummy to drink -- oH hey - have you tried liliquoi juice? It's awesome!

Almond shake-almond milk, banana, cinnamon, nutmeg, dates (I have one of these every afternoon-YUM!)
Green Juice-lots of variety
Fruit juices-orange, grapefruit, apple
