"Strawberry Lime Water"

So I’ve never been a big drinker. Haha, not in that way, I mean just in general. When you’re sick, you’re supposed to drink plenty of fluids- always been tough for me since I was a little girl. When I was pregnant with Anniston, it was a challenge to stay hydrated-I literally had to force myself to accomplish a “goal” of drinking 3 bottles of water a day.  I just am not thirsty by nature I suppose. But, I know everyone says its so important to drink 8 glasses of water a day. And I want to be healthy. So when I came across this flavored water recipe, I was excited to try it. A new way to meet your water quota without struggling. It’s delicious and refreshing. Perfect for Spring and Summer! My husband loves it too… Try it for yourself… Happy Hydrating!

  • 6 Whole Fresh or Frozen Strawberries
  • 1 Lime, Sliced
  • 10 Mint Leaves
  • Pitcher of Water

  1. Combine all ingredients in pitcher
  2. Fill pitcher with water 
  3.  Refrigerate overnight prior to drinking

  • You have to refrigerate this at least 7 hours to allow the flavors to develop (It’s a good idea to make a pitcher before you go to bed at night so it will be ready the next day)
  • Drink it all in one day—not only is that key to getting all the water you need in a given day, but the lime starts to sour after about 36 hours.
  • You can replace the strawberries with raspberries, blackberries, etc. Mix it up!

  1. This sounds really great. I think orange and blackberry together would be amazing.
