Fruit Flavored Water
Such a simple concept, yet I hadn't even thought of, it save for the lemon water which I have been drinking for years.
See I'm not really a big fan of water, it's one of those things that I need to literally force myself to drink, and the only way I like it is with ice and sliced lemon.
So while getting my jar of lemon water ready last week, I realized that I had run out of lemon, so I popped in orange slices instead and I had a little bit of crushed pineapple in a small bowl, from when I made Pineapple Mousse a few days before, so spooned some of that into the jar as well.
GOODNESS that was some good water. YUM!
I'm thinking I'm going to try Watermelon and Mint....Cucumber and Mint and a few others.
But now I always have a pitcher of flavored water or a few quart mason jars sitting in the fridge.
It's helped me get my water intake in and it's delicious. It's NOT sweet though, but you can add a little bit of sugar or sweetener if you like. I do add a tiny spoon of sugar for the kids because they prefer it sweetened.
Just get creative and if you need inspiration, you can do a simple google search and find a bunch of websites/blogs trying out different combinations.
Some of my favorites are Nectarine and Apricot Water
Mixed Berries and Lemon Water
Also, try out, Pineapple Water and Tutti Frutti Water (I literally make a fruit salad in the bottom of a pitcher, then fill with ice and water).
