AquaBall- the first no-sugar drink for kids! #ThinkChristmas #StockingStuffer - #DIY Hot Chocolate Ball

AquaBall, the very first and only flavored water for kids with NO sugar. It’s also enhanced with vitamins and has no artificial colors or flavors, a great healthy alternative to juices and other sugary drinks for little ones!  I must admit, I have seen these in the stores and thought they were cute, then I got an email to review them for the holiday season and I was excited!
With the holidays nearing,these will make a great stocking stuffer (especially if you’re picking out your child’s favorite characters from Frozen or Avengers!), use for DIY ornaments with the kids, use them to make Hot Chocolate Balls for Christmas gifts and more! 

My kids were so excited to try the flavors and did not mind if the flavor they drank was in a boy or girl ball.  I try to keep sugary drinks away from the kids, so this is a great alternative.  They still get a great tasting beverage, while I know they are drinking a healthier choice!  My daughter was so ecstatic to see the Frozen themed bottles.  With Frozen so popular right now, this was a huge hit!  Nothing brings a smile to a face like a Olaf bottle staring back at you.  My son enjoyed the Avengers bottles just as much.  It is great for kids to have beverages they love that feature their favorite characters as well.

The very first and only flavored water just for kids with absolutely no sugar and no calories. Instead,  it’s sweetened with natural stevia, has no artificial colors or flavors and is enhanced with B Vitamins and Vitamin C. AquaBall is also the only water beverage to meet Disney’s nutritional guidelines and receive their “Mickey Check” seal of approval. Kids love AquaBall because of its fun shape and characters, moms love it because it’s a healthier alternative to juice and other sugary beverages, and a great way to get kids to drink more water! 
AquaBall comes in four flavors:
  • AquaBall Berry Frost is naturally flavored and features Anna, Elsa, Olaf and Sven from Disney’s Frozen.Orange (featuring Planes).
  • AquaBall Orange Splash is naturally flavored and features Dusty, Lil’Dipper, BladeRanger and Jumper from Disney’s Planes: Fire & Rescue.
  • AquaBall Fruit Punch is naturally flavored and features Disney Princesses Ariel, Rapunzel, Cinderella and Belle.
  • AquaBall Grape is naturally flavored and features Marvel Avengers Iron Man, Captain America, Hulk and Avengers Assemble.
One AquaBall equals two cups of cocoa!  Perfect to make while wrapping holiday gifts!
Ingredients
  • 2 single serving package instant hot chocolate mix in the flavor of your choice.  I used SwissMiss Milk Chocolate
  • 1 empty AqualBall, rinsed, dried and the label removed.
  • Sprinkles
  • chocolate chips (or white chocolate chips/ mint chips etc.)
  • Jet-Puffed Mallow Bits or Mini Marshmallows
  • Tag or note on how to make the hot chocolate (mix with two cups of 8 oz. hot water)
  • Ribbon

Pour two single serving package instant hot chocolate mix packets into the AquaBall. I made a paper funnel to make sure it all went in without a mess. Next up I added sprinkles, then chocolate chips and finally the marshmallows.  Tighten the cap, then add a festive bow and instructions!

Doesn't that look yummy!
