Recipes To Keep Your Loved Ones Hydrated With Fruits & Vegetable


Strawberries and Coconut Water


Ingredients

 

To make 2 Strawberry Mock tails combine:
• 1 cup (250ml) of fresh coconut water
• 1 cup (250 ml) strawberries hulled and sliced
• 3 T of sugar syrup or agave nectar

 

Directions
1. To make the sugar syrup, boil sugar and water together in a ratio of 1:3 sugar to water until it thickens to a runny syrup consistency. Store in a jar for all future cocktail making.
2. Measure 1 cup of coconut water, either directly from a cut-open coconut or from a store-bought container (if you are lucky enough to live in an area that sells fresh coconut water in a bottle).
3. Combine the strawberries and sugar syrup and blend with a blender to desired consistency.
4. Serve with ice.

Cucumber Lemonade with Basil

 

Ingredients


To make 3 to 4 Cucumber Lemonade treats combine:
• 1 English cucumber
• 3 C water
• 3 lemons
• 2 T sugar
• 1 small bunch basil
• 1 C soda water

 

Directions
1. Start by cutting your cucumber in half. Peel one half and cut it lengthwise (you can cut it in half again first if need be).
2. Scoop the seeds out and chop it into pieces.
3. Put the cucumber pieces in a food processor and puree until smooth.
4. Put puree in a fine mesh sieve over a container and push with a wooden spoon or spatula, extracting as much liquid as you can from the cucumber puree.
5. Fill a separate bowl or container with 3 cups water. Squeeze 2 lemons into the water and mix in the sugar.
6. Pour lemonade and cucumber juice into a pitcher or serving container.  Slice remaining cucumber half (unpeeled) and remaining lemon and add to pitcher. Add basil, too. Refrigerate until chilled.
7. Serve with ice.

If a senior has an aversion to fruits and vegetables, especially when they are uncooked, high water content foods like crudités, salads or gazpacho may be an unrealistic approach. Instead,

  1. By adding healthy ingredients into foods, they already enjoy can yield small victories for a caregiver
  2. Try adding a cup of fresh berries to a loved one’s yogurt, cereal or dessert, or
  3. Add slices of tomato and a few leaves of lettuce to wraps and sandwiches.

These may not seem like meaningful additions, but every little bit adds up. Incorporating these items on a daily basis can help your loved one prevent dehydration without significantly changing the amount of liquid they drink.

 

While these helpful guidelines make good health-sense, it is important to stay in communication with your loved one’s doctor and keep in mind that managing some medical conditions, such as heart failure and kidney or liver disease, may require intentional restrictions of fluid intake.
