AHHHHH! Valentine’s Day. I don’t know about you, but I got to work same as usual and I
still have to keep watching over my diet and not gaining weight.

But today is a special day I decide to spend it with my sweetheart and my best friends celebrating love and life, but yes, with delicious and light drinks so I don’t have to get up later with any regrets.

These exotic light drinks also contain nutritional properties, such as mango, which contains large benefits for the skin, memory, sight, even to prevent cancer, lemon rich in vitamin C, like apple, strawberry treatment benefits obesity and skin and finally the coconut water that serves for good digestion and is low in fat.

Another possibility is alcoholic drinks such as Passion Fruit (Maracuyá) Daikiri, perfect for lovers of rum and triple sec.
