I simply wanted a tasty way to increase my daily intake. That’s all. So I made this Strawberry Lemon Mint Infused Water. And it hit the spot.

For some reason, despite the high temperatures, I am not drinking water like I should be. I think this is just part of my being distracted with a lot on my professional plate right now. I’ve been slightly negligent with a few things personally, namely some personal time and making sure I keep my water and proteins level high.

Of course every time I recommit to my health, I have to run to the store. Funny how these things work.
I ran to my local store and grabbed all the necessary items I needed.

Ingredients

  • 3 cups water; chilled
  • 2 lemons
  • 5-7 strawberries; plump
  • 10-20 mint leaves
  • 4 cups ice +/- as needed

Instructions

  1. Wast fruit and slice.


  2. Wash mint leaves and de-stem

  3. In a 2 qt pitcher, add the fruit and mint leaves, ice, and fill to the top with water.

  4. Chill for 2-24 hours before enjoying, the longer, the stronger the fruit flavors will be. 

  5. You can add more water 2-3 more times with the same fruit before the potency is lost and the fruit begins to break down. 

  6. For really strong flavor, you can muddle everything together, then strain out the solids.

    This is the perfect way to encourage me to drink more water! Do you think I could use sparkling water with this too? Sometimes I like a little bubble.
