Watermelon, cucumber and mint are just about the most quintessentially refreshing foods around. That is why we love to use them to infuse our water. We came up with this fun recipe using our SpiraLife vegetable slicer. Your kids will love this as it sort of reminds us of a lily pond with the great, fun tangle of cucumber spirals floating below the surface. And, now that we have our cool new watermelon slicer, we can make them up really fast, which is great!
We have been infusing water for some time now and if you haven’t caught wind of the practice, it really is taking hold now in the health community. It is a great way to switch out sugary drinks for water, upping you water intake and handling hydration. I had never been a big fan of water until I discovered infusing and it really made a big difference. I have now even graduated to actually liking water on its own and drinking it up, but I still LOVE, LOVE, LOVE infused water of all types. When on the go, I love using an infuser water bottle this one by FitInfuser.
Now, especially as summer approaches, it is more important than ever to stay properly hydrated. For tips on how to know if you need a bit more H2O, check out our post all about hydration.
