How To: Flavor Your Water Naturally, Encouraging Hydration

Flavor Your Water Naturally, Encouraging Hydration

Through the hot summer months staying properly hydrated can be difficult and boring. Water is not a good "flavor" after your third or fourth glass of the day. There are store-bought re-hydration beverages available but they are expensive and generally packed with sugar. Here is a simple way to flavor your water with things you most likely have in the house.

Things You'll Need


Step 1: Slicing the Fruit

Grab a few strawberries, cut them in half and toss them in the bottom of the pitcher.

Joining the strawberries will be 4-6 slices of cucumber and 2 or 3 slices of lemon (rind and all). Note: if you find seeds in your lemon slices, pull them out before adding to the pitcher.

Step 2: Fill with Water

With the fruit in the pitcher, fill the container with water and refrigerate. Letting it stand for about an hour will allow the flavors to spread.

When all the delicious water has been consumed, simply refill the pitcher. Keeping the pitcher in the fridge will encourage the fruit to stay fresh. One "recipe" worth of fruit should stay fresh and flavorful for about a week.
