I first made these flavored waters when I did a detox diet with my husband where no caffeine was allowed. It was not a pretty site around here for the first few days. I might have even scared myself. I hadn’t realized how addicted to caffeine I had become!
After drinking only water for a few days, I needed a little variety. I saw some people flavoring water with lime and lemon for detoxing, and went for a few more flavors…
Fill 1/2 of a quart sized mason jar with chopped fruit and a few tablespoons coarsely chopped fresh herb if desired. Cover with ice and water. Let flavors blend in the fridge overnight and enjoy the next day! I strained mine into a glass full of ice.
- Cantaloupe, cucumber, mint
- Watermelon & mint
