Do you love to get out and hike? We do. Living in Hawaii, I learned that hiking isn’t all climbing mountains with climbing gear. Thankfully, in Colorado, there are a ton of easy hikes that I love to do with my husband. We live right next to the Rocky Mountains but not all trails are straight up Cheyenne Mountain. Most of the ones we do have the mountain in plain view the entire time as we walk around nature.
Every hike, no matter how small is a success and one way we like to not only rehydrate but celebrate another hike in the books is to toast with Aquafina Sparkling. With zero calories, zero sugar, and zero artificial preservatives, they are the perfect drink to quench any hike.
Right now, you can try them at Target locations so be sure to keep an eye out next time you’re in the store. They are currently on Cartwheel too, you can save 25% from 5/21-6/17 on any 8 pack flavor! But our hikes go long sometimes and even though they’re in an aluminum can, they don’t always stay perfectly chilled. My solution? Frozen berry kabobs. They are the perfect accompaniment to any flavor – including the new Black Cherry Dragonfruit. Want to make some for yourself? Let’s do it!
All you need is some kabob skewers and your favorite berries. I chose to use raspberries, blueberries, and blackberries. I created a pattern and then repeated it 3 times. After I made a few, I put them in a plastic baggies and froze them. Make sure to keep them as a single layer so that they do not freeze together. Put a couple cans of Aquafina Sparkling in the fridge and the next day, you’ll be ready to hike.
After a hike through southern Colorado, we like to have a seat, enjoy a drink and reflect on what we just did. It’s not just a hike, it’s a chance to connect with your spouse and hang out in some of the most amazing landscapes in America. Yes, Colorado isn’t Hawaii and I’m still having a hard time loving it but the more time I spend outside, enjoying the trails, the more the Rocky Mountains are warming up to me.
