Here’s an easy, healthy way to cool down in the summer without drinking sugary drinks. Just take a pitcher of fresh water and add some sliced fruit. After about an hour in the fridge, the fruit gives it a really nice, subtle and refreshing taste and it sure beats plain water. Plus it looks great, too. Today I added some sliced apple, lemon, watermelon, peach, mango, and apricot.
Fresh fruit is more affordable and better tasting in the summer so this is easy to do right now with any of your favorite fruits, or you could even add a refreshing vegetable like cucumber slices. Try it with my combination or create your own. I’m always trying to drink more water and this makes it easy because it tastes so good. It’s a healthy way to stay hydrated and now you can say, “Anyone for an aguas frescas?” – Jenny Jones
I always put fresh lemon wedges in mine. I like it with chopped ice. After my green tea in the morning, I drink water all day at work.
Water is really important for the body, and having it daily. I’m guilty of slacking with my plain water intake, because it is so blah. It has to be really cold and I do really well drinking it ice cold. I will try your combo because it sounds so refreshing 🙂
