Quicky "fancy" Water
Are you, like me, bad about drinking enough water? I never seem to drink enough for the hot weather and breastfeeding. Of course, I can down iced coffee, diet coke, lemonade, or beer like it's going out of style. In an attempt to make water more "drinkable" I have been adding flavor- all without caffeine or sugars. And it takes, like, one minute!
For the drink pictured above, I used my fave "venti" cup leftover from an iced coffee. But really I should be using a fancy glass or stainless bottle to avoid plastics, but it won't hurt me on occasion!
For all recipes, place ice in cup, place ingredients on top, then fill with water! The longer you let it sit, the more flavors will be in it. I make it fresh each day or the stuff in there can get yucky!
frozen berries, two mint leaves
3-4 cucumber slices, two mint leaves (cucumber is also great plain)
Lemon wedge (squeezed) and raspberries
2-3 strawberries (muddled), 2 basil leaves
Lime wedge (squeezed), sprig of cilantro
frozen berries, sprig of rosemary
Lemon wedge (squeezed), and edible lavender
Edible rose petals (these are so good alone!)
Try them out and hopefully it will get you drinking more water!!!
