Are you planning your 4th of July or Canada Day party menu? If you’re Whole30-ing, pregnant, or breastfeeding, you’re most likely not planning to partake in adult beverages. But, we think you still deserve to kick back and put your feet up while sipping a refreshing, healthy drink. We’ve got you covered in this post with our round up of seven mocktails for mama! When a drink is not Whole30 compliant, we have made notes to modify it for Whole30. Cheers!

(makes 2 servings)
