For some reason, I have been drinking quite a bit of water over the past few days, so I wanted to try experimenting with flavored waters again just to have some variety in what I drink.
Cucumber-Lemon Water that I made.
I found a recipe for cucumber-lemon-mint water pinned here, and originally from here. The note under the pin said to use:
=> 2 liters of water
=> 1 medium cucumber
=> 1 lemon
=> 10-12 mint leaves (I didn't include these because I forgot to get them at the grocery store)
The flavored water should steep overnight in the refrigerator.
It said it was great for weight loss as well as general detox - including clear skin. I can't verify those claims...though I know drinking water is good for people for many reasons. Simply by "googling" the words "benefits of drinking water" there are many links to reasons why people should drink more water.
The Cucumber-Lemon Water is a delicious alternative to plain water; and I'm drinking more water because I like the taste of this fruit-vegetable combination. Another flavored water I've tried and enjoyed is Cucumber-Basil-Ginger Water.
Do you have any homemade flavored waters that you enjoy making and drinking?
