Quench Your Thirst - Got a habit of buying a coffee drink or smoothie when you're out and about? Save some coin and make it healthier at home.

Chances are pretty high that when you’re out and about on a summer day, you’re tempted to grab a quick soda, smoothie, or frap before you head home. I know the feeling. Trust me.

But, if you can hold off just a little bit longer, you can make a fancy, shop-worthy, would-have-been-expensive beverage at home. For less. The bonus is that it will be a little bit healthier, too.

For all their free-trade and organic labels slapped on everything, most businesses that sell beverages are in it for the business. The bottom line doesn’t typically require that they use hormone-free milk or natural sweeteners. Sure, they might have a token item on the menu, but I’m betting you can do better at home.

By prepping your drinks at home, you save a wait in line and you save some coin. If you really want a jazzy cup, splurge on a fun mug or smoothie cup and keep refilling it — at home.

  1. Great round-up! You know, sometimes I think I buy “fancy” drinks just for the sake of it — it’s almost like a compulsion to spend the money. But we really can make something just as delish at home. Thanks for the encouragement!

  2. Thanks so much for all these great links! It is nice to grab a fun drink when you are out and about, but the cost has a way of taking the joy out of it.
