how to make your own vitamin water
I try to drink water (without ice) when I first wake up in the morning. It is refreshing and hydrating. It is even better when I take the time to slip in some lemon slices. It is a treat when I make this tasty “tea”. I drink up and enjoy feeling like I am at the spa while getting the extra vitamins that seep into the water (try to go organic to avoid any pesticides washing off into your water). Forget the store bought flavored or vitamin waters and see how easy and delicious it is to make your own.
refreshing spa water
- 10 cups water
- 1/2 large cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1/4 cup loosely packed basil leaves
- 1/3 cup loosely packed mint leaves
Combine ingredients in a large pitcher. Steep for several hours or overnight. Enjoy for 1-2 days. If this water disappears within the first day, I will add more water the next night to enjoy for another day before throwing out the herbs and lemon. Drink up!
