Nine great tips to make drinking water taste better

We all know how important it is to drink plenty of water and stay hydrated. But many of us just don’t find drinking regular water all that enjoyable.

The steps are easy to follow in all the ‘recipes’: just chop up the ingredients, slightly squeeze them to get the juice out, put them in some water and leave it in the fridge. You’ll need about 34 US fl. oz (one liter) of water, and the amount of ingredients can vary depending on your preferences.

1. Lemon and strawberry

Chop half a lemon into wedges, add a cup of chopped strawberries. Squeeze the juice out of the ingredients. Add a sprig of rosemary (optional) and pour in some water.

2. Orange, lime and lemon

Put all the ingredients, sliced up, into a jar. Squeeze the juice out, add some mint, then add the water.

3. Mint and pineapples

You’ll need only a cup of chopped pineapple for this one. Squash all the chunks, add a sprig of mint, and pour in the water.

4. Raspberry and lime

Cut one lime into wedges or rounds, add half a cup of raspberries, and pour in the water.

5. Blackberry and sage

Slightly squeeze a handful of blackberries and a couple of sage leaves together and add in some water.

6. Orange, ginger, and pineapple

You will need half a lemon, half a cup of sliced pineapple, and a tablespoon of ground ginger. Add all the ingredients into a jar, squash them together and pour in the water.

7. Watermelon and rosemary

Take a cup of cubed watermelon and mash it. Add a sprig of rosemary that will instantly release its juice. Don’t mix the ingredients too much as you may risk getting your drink tasting too much of rosemary. Then pour in the water.

8. Cucumber and mint

Chop half of a cucumber into rounds, slice up a lime, add fresh mint leaves, and pour in some water.

9. Fruit ice

This is a perfect recipe for lazy people. If you want a glass of water that’s seriously tasty and do so in just a few seconds, you can prepare some ice cubes with slices of different fruit, berries or mint beforehand. That way you’ll be able to cool the water quickly and give it a nice taste at any moment.

WATERMELON STRAWBERRY LIME SLUSH

Watermelon and strawberry slush with a hint of lime for a refreshing summertime treat!

As the first watermelon enters the house, there is a rush of excitement.  Never seen out of season here, everyone gathers to fulfill their prolonged craving.  Three short months in New England, that’s pretty much it.

I actually had no plan to create slushies today, yet I found myself with a giant half watermelon completely frozen.


Because, well… it was in my freezer.

Apparently when you send a 9 year old boy down to the basement because the watermelon does not fit in the kitchen refrigerator, you need to give explicit instructions as to where said watermelon should go.


Which leads me to my advice regarding this drink.  It will make your life a heck of a lot easier if you cut the watermelon before freezing it.  Just in case you weren’t sure.

Watermelons take a really, really long time to defrost.

After hacking into that beautiful partially frozen monster, successfully avoiding a trip to the emergency room,  I tossed it in the blender with some lime juice.  It was good as is, but missing a little something.  In goes some strawberry puree leftover from recipe testing, and it added just the right touch.


I thought it was great, my husband thought it could be a little sweeter (I guess this is now a dessert drink).  So we compromised with just a teaspoon of sugar.  Totally optional, and I think it greatly depends on the sweetness of your watermelon.

Sugar or not, this is the perfect refreshing drink for a hot summer day.

INGREDIENTS
4 Cups Watermelon, Cubed and Frozen
½ Cup Strawberry Puree*
¼ Cup Lime Juice
1-2 Teaspoons Sugar, Optional

PREPARATION
1. Add watermelon, strawberry puree, and lime juice to a blender and puree until slush consistency. Taste and add 1-2 teaspoons sugar if desired for extra sweetness.

Tips
The strawberry puree can be made in the same blender with either fresh or defrosted frozen berries.

STRAWBERRY AND CHIA SEED SMOOTHIE BOWL


Strawberries, yogurt and chia seeds along with a hint of chocolate are sure to get your morning off to a great start!

Looking for a new, healthy and delicious breakfast idea?  Smoothie bowls fit that description for sure. Strawberry yogurt smoothie and chia seeds make up the base.   Fresh strawberries, chocolate chips and more chia seeds make a flavorful and crunchy topping!  It is so much more fun to eat a smoothie with lots of goodies on top, right?

My kids went crazy for these – which is a win in my book.  With zero refined sugar, this is a breakfast I can totally get behind.  Actually we enjoy these smoothie bowls as a snack too, it’s really great any time of day. 

It might look a little fancy,  but it’s easy to make I promise!  Even if just for yourself, it is fun to make a pretty breakfast every once in a while 🙂  My family had the discussion about whether or not it is worth it to make your food look nice before eating it.  Especially for just one or two people.  I am not at that point yet, but I’d like to think I will still make the food pretty for just my husband and I when the kids are gone.  It sure will be quicker than making six smoothie bowls for sure!
