What's in your Water?

Let’s face it, it’s summer and it’s hot. We all know we need to replace our fluids. Drinking soda and a lot of caffeinated drinks will just dehydrate you more. So, that pretty much leaves water.


OK, plain water can be boring, but we need to replenish our fluids on these hot summer days.



Here is how you can make your water fun to drink, add some fruits or veggies.



Mixes include. Lemons and raspberries, or cucumbers and rosemary, or lemons and limes, or strawberries and mango, oranges and pineapples, or melons, and even mint… have fun with it. You might even get a few vitamins out of it.



Start with ½ a gallon of cold filtered water and a hand full of your favorite combo, add ice and refrigerate at least an hour.



Drink and enjoy.



What to do with the fruit left in the bottom. Peel in blend it and pour into a pop cycle tray, and freeze. Yummy and refreshing.
