Bee,oh,nah,deh.....also known as Bionade! {Review and Giveaway}


Healthy eating is a major issue in the Mummy Hearts Money household at the moment. Those of you following along on Facebook this month will know that I made a huge effort to give up sugar and other terrible things - only to land myself in hospital.

Seeing as how I can no longer eat a huge chunk of the healthier foods in life, and many of the foods left available to me are either not particularly healthy or unpalatable, can you imagine how happy I was to get email asking if I would like to try Bionade? Finally something I am allowed to consume that isn't going to be fattening!

What is Bionade? (Bee,oh,nah,deh)



Just saying. This is Austrayliya. I can almost 100% guarantee that you all are pronouncing this drink Buy-o-nayde in your heads, then possibly correcting yourself to Bee-oh-nah-deh with a smirk. It's just way too posh for the likes of me.

Bionade is a healthy, organic, fizz free drink made from a beer-like fermentation process. It has 60% less calories than regular soft drink making it a great alcohol-free subsitute! Some of Bionade's great qualities include:
  • Low in sugar
  • Free from artificial colours, flavours, and preservatives
  • Suitable for vegetarians and vegans
  • Low in sodium and phosphorous free
Initially I had thought Bionade would serve as a substitute for the usual cup of soft drink with dinner. When they arrived they were so pretty I realised they had much more potential. If you are looking for a nice non-alcoholic mix to have by the pool while we still have some nice weather left to enjoy, give this combination a whirl (and feel free to add vodka if non-alcoholic is not your style!)


Serve over ice and enjoy! 

Want to try Bionade for yourself? I have a case of 24 mixed bottles to giveaway to one lucky reader. You can try this fantastic alternative to soft drink yourself! Easy entry via the rafflecopter below.

  1. The lychee sounds super yummy and I would mix it with lime juice for a lovely summery drink :) Perfect when I am breastfeeding! :)

  2. I love your style. Sorry to hear your sugar free diet didn't go well. I eat low sugar but don't eliminate it. I like the sound of your cocktail. Sounds like they have already been mixed pretty well so maybe ice, mint and lime wedges mixed with the orange ginger.

  3. I'd like to mix Bionade with some lime juice or fresh lemon juice. I could put lemons in any drink to make it extra delish though!

  13. I have been doing healthy eating since the beginning of the year. I would love to try some Bionade with mineral water. Mineral water has been my only drink treat for months! The ginger-orange sounds gourmet enough for me feel like I am not missing out.

  16. Id like to try the Elderberry with Vanilla Vodka and the Ginger Orange with Scotch ( i know it sounds gross but i love scotch and ginger beer so it would be great to try)

  17. I would try them all in place of alcohol such as Midori and make my own cocktails out of them, much healthier and better for the budget too.

  18. I would add to Bionade Ginger Orange Drink, some Apple juice, squeeze some fresh lemon, some lime juice, Dash Rasberry Liqueur, crush ice and garnish it with some mint leaves, a refreshing drink on a hot summer day that packs a PUNCH.

  19. Some lovely Midori and slushy ice would make a magical mix!
