Citrus Mint Water
|Citrus Mint Water|
I can’t tell you how many times I’ve googled “flavored water recipes”. I’m always trying to find ways to make drinking water taste better. I just don’t like drinking the stuff, period! Well…I can kinda tolerate it if it’s super duper cold.
There is no denying that water makes me look and feel INCREDIBLE!
When I’m thoroughly hydrated I can pretty much skip foundation. My skin glows and looks so youthful, my complexion is even, I’m full of energy, happier and it keeps that impulse snacking at bay like a champ.
Like so many of us, this year I have made a promise to my body to drink 64 oz. of water a day. I make this resolution ALL the time and usually start falling short within a week and dreading each gulp. But not this year!!!
So far I have been successful and I must say, it’s pretty darn easy!
I use to drink those lil sparkly waters but they are just loaded with too much other “stuff” and the healthier ones are way to expensive for my 64 oz a day regimen.
Here’s the current flavor combination that I’m loving as of now. CITRUS MINT!! It’s easy, cheap and healthy. Don’t worry the mint will not make the water taste like mouthwash. If you prefer a minty taste then you can blend up the mint.
There are tons of different plants, fruits and natural extracts you can add to your bottle water to make it more pleasurable to drink. Below are a few add-ins I’ve tried and found to be tasty.
Yummy Water Add-ins
1-2 drops of organic vanilla extra + a handful of mint leaves
orange slices+ blackberries
cucumbers + lemon or cucumbers+strawberries
spearmint & peppermint leaves
The above recipe and the add-ins WILL NOT totally transform the taste of water. It just adds an essence to it. It’s a healthy option for those who want to keep their water as healthy as possible without adding in artificial sweeteners and other stuff.
When adding in citrus, don’t let it sit in your water overnight or the water will start to taste like the peel. I usually add mine in the morning when I make up my bottles and then stick them on the freezer to chill.
