Dress Up Your Water

Hello Friends!

Well its that time of the year again, we are right near summer and its getting really hot down here. With the increased warm weather we all have to start drinking more water. It can be hard to convince ourselves to drink more water at times. I understand it! Water can just get sooooo boring. It really is so nice to switch things up once in a while! If I don't have enough time to make fresh juice, I love making a healthier version of lemonade or infusing my water with herbs or fruit.

Pink Lemonade
A healthier option than the traditional lemonade. The pink lemonade is made with stevia, lemons, and raspberries. It's sweet and tangy. This is perfect for summer BBQs.

Watermelon-Lime-Coconut Refresher
This is a very refreshing combination, it is also amazing for your skin. Coconut water is rich in electrolytes, which makes it perfect to cool down after an intense workout. If you're like me and don't like coconut water, this is a great way to get those electrolytes in. It has no added sugar and the lime, watermelon, and coconut combo is great!

Mint, Cucumber, and Lime Infused Water
This combination is not only refreshing, but also amazing for your skin! Mint is rich in antioxidants, aids with digestion, and its smell can help fight depression and fatigue. When mixed with water mint leaves add an extremely refreshing flavor. Cucumbers can help reduce cholesterol and control blood pressure.

Fruit and Herb Infused Ice Cubes
This is definitely my favorite way to dress up my water during summer. It is soooo easy to do and you can just keep it in your freezer until needed. They are perfect for cookouts and BBQs. It makes the water look all pretty and fancy. There's so many different options. You can use rosemary, mint, raspberries, limes, lemons, basil, and other different kinds of berries.

Cold Brew Matcha
My little loves matcha! She always tries to get me to try it with her. This is the best one for when you need a little dose of energy, but iced coffee is too much.

Will you be giving any of these a try? What’s your favorite summer drink?
