Mug Delicious Refreshing Drink Of Mix Fruits With Mint On Wooden

I’ll be honest.  Water was NOT my thing when I decided that I wanted to make some healthy changes in my life.

At that point and time, coffee, tea and sodas were pretty much all I drank.  It did take some getting used to.

Now, several years later, I’ve learned that drinking water can actually be fun and pretty.  I enjoy it plain, favored and even sparkling with a little bit of lime.  Today, I’m sharing some FUN water recipes with you.  ENJOY!

 

MINTY CUCUMBER LIME

1/2 a cucumber, sliced
1/2 a lime, sliced
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
STRAWBERRY-LEMON WITH BASIL1/2 cup sliced strawberries
1/2 a lemon, sliced
1/4 cup fresh basil leaves

WATERMELON MINT

1 cup cubed watermelon
1/4 cup fresh mint leaves

PINEAPPLE-ORANGE WITH GINGER

1/2 cup cubed pineapple
1/2 an orange, sliced
1 tablespoon freshly-grated ginger

YOU’LL NEED:

1-quart jars
Water
Wooden Spoon
Agave or another sweetener (optional)

DIRECTIONS:

Choose which recipe you’re making — or come up with your own combination — and gather all of the ingredients.

Place the fruit, herbs, and/or spices in the bottom of one of the glass jars, and muddle with a wooden spoon. (That basically means mash up the fruit in the bottom of the jar to release some of the flavor-filled juices.)

Fill the jar with water and give it a taste. (You can also fill the jar with seltzer water for a fizzy treat.) If you’d like something a bit sweeter, try adding some agave (and mix until dissolved).

Enjoy as-is or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.

As you can see, there are variety of ways you can enjoy it.  Be creative, have fun and drink up!
With Love,
Laura
