We all know how important water is to the human body. But if you’re like me, water needs to be jazzed up in order to be exciting. Sure, I’ll down glasses of plain water once in a while, but when the water is pretty, I’ll be excited about it.
So how do we prettify water? Simple, throw cucumbers in it and fill a big pitcher with the mixture!
You may be thinking “Who wants to drink a salad?” I know, I know… I was skeptical too at first, but cucumber-infused water is actually a pleasant, refreshing drink. If you prefer, you may also mix in a little no-calorie sweetener or sugar syrup for a sweeter drink!
Other ways to make your water more palatable:
- Add slices of lemon for a tart citrus taste.
- Add slices of orange for a sweet citrus taste.
- Mix water with iced tea powder like this one.
