One thing you should know about me, I love mixing stuff. Anything and everything.
Healthy drinks are hard to come by these days, most of the drinks out there are filled with sugar and food additives.
They are mostly not good for your health. Reason I make most of the things I drink at home, I mean the local drinks.
