Cucumber, Lime and Mint Infused Water

infused waterI’ve been on a bit of health kick lately, trying to get my self into better shape. One of the important things I’ve been trying to do is drink more water! I actually like water, but I just don’t drink enough of it throughout the day. I know there are lots of people who just don’t like it, so I’ve been experimenting with some different infused waters to see what I think tastes the best and makes drinking water a little more fun and exciting. Let’s face it…if it looks pretty, it makes it a whole lot easier to do it! 😉

My current favorite “recipe” if you will, is to cut up cucumber, limes and mint and add it to my water.  It’s a super refreshing combination, with a surprisingly yummy taste.

The secret is to make a glass and let it sit for a bit before you drink it.  That gives the flavors a chance to meld.

A pretty glass full of ice, a fun straw and a cute colorful napkin straw make it feel like more of a special occasion.  There are great infused water bottles and pitchers on the market too, enabling you to make a large batch of water at once, and take it on the go with you.  I find that if I carry  bottle around with me, I am much more likely to drink it throughout the day.

Give it a try ad let me know what you think.  I am always looking for new combinations to add into my rotation, so I’d love to hear if you have any favorites!
