Lemons. Water. Lemons. Water. Lemons. Water.
There is information about the benefits of warm lemon water floating around ALL over the place right now. And it is fantastic! But there are some people <like us!> who do not always love the tart taste of warm lemon water + ginger first thing in the morning. And you know what, that is ok!
Drinking warm lemon water is obviously fantastic for your health, but it is certainly not the be all and end all of all things. If you can’t handle the taste, there are plenty of other deliciously refreshing ways you can still enjoy the cleansing benefits of lemon water without having to torture your taste buds.
One of our favorite things to do is mix and match fresh and/or frozen fruits in with fresh lemon slices. It is super sweet + delicious. And it is so simple! All you need to do is toss a few fruit slices in a glass or mason jar and fill it up with filtered water. Drink up or keep the glass in the fridge until you are ready for a cold crisp refreshing drink.
We think flavored waters turn out best when you make it before bed. It allows just enough time for all of the flavors to absorb together overnight. This makes it taste so yummy! You can also refill the glass with filtered water a couple of times before you need to switch out the fruit. It should stay good for up to 48 hours as long as you keep it refrigerated.
My favorite mixture is: Orange + Lemon + Lime slices. Or you can try Joan’s favorite mixture: Lemon + Cucumber + Raspberries. Of course there are tons of other add-in options like kiwi, strawberries, and blueberries. The list goes on and on. The options are really limitless. Just mix and match flavors until you find some varieties that you enjoy!
A cold glass of flavored water tastes so refreshing in the morning! Or anytime you want really. And a cold glass of flavored water still starts your day out fully hydrated and recharged. Plus it still provides tons of great cleansing benefits and is a far better choice than most other morning beverages. And there is ONE more thing you must know:
