Spa Waters- Cucumber Mint, Strawberry Lemonade and Orange Creamsicle

DSC_0044

Today’s post is more of a gentle reminder than a recipe.  With Canada Day today and July 4th approaching for the States, people will be out enjoying the sun.  It is so important to stay hydrated, these flavoured waters make it easy 🙂  These are great to pack for all of your outdoor adventures this summer.  Make these with kids and see what combinations you come up with! Although flavoured waters are not a new concept, I love making these three varieties together.  They compliment each other, but are different enough to keep it interesting.  Each combination makes one mason jar full (4 cups).  Double or triple to fill your container.

The process for the waters is the same. Place ingredients in your container and fill with purified water.  Flavour improves over time so prepare the night before if you have time.  If not, they will still be great.  You can place the jars in the sun for a few hours to speed things up and fully extract the flavours.  Refrigerate before serving or serve at room temperature (my preference)

Cucumber Mint:

– 4 or 5 slices of cucumber

– a few mint leaves

Strawberry Lemonade

– 3 or 4 strawberries, thinly sliced

– 1/2 lemon, thinly sliced

– 3 or 4 basil leaves (optional, but recommended)

Orange Creamsicle:

– 1/2 orange, thinly sliced

– 1/2 t vanilla extract

*Note: As you are leaving the skins on the citrus and cucumber, make an effort to buy organic to prevent pesticide residue from contaminating the water. 

Enjoy ❤ ❤
