Strawberry, Lime, Cucumber and Mint Infused Water

Jazz up your daily hydration with this infused water. Strawberries add a hint of sweetness while cucumber, mint, and lime make the water refreshing and bright!

Ingredients: 

  • 1 cup sliced strawberries
  • 1 cup sliced cucumbers
  • 2 limes, sliced (or substitute one lime for one lemon)
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves
  • Ice cubes
  • Water (or sparkling water)

*I also added a handful of blueberries for an extra kick!

Instructions: 

In a half-gallon jar or a 2 quart pitcher, layer the strawberries, cucumbers, lime slices, and mint leaves with the ice cubes. Fill jar or pitcher with water. Let chill for 10 minutes. The longer it sits; however, the stronger the flavor. It’s mild at first but after a few hours it may be quite strong. Enjoy!

*You may be able to get 2-4 fill-ups out of one batch but you might want to change out the flavorings sooner for stronger flavor.
