Drink Water the smart way

Drinking lots of water during the hot summer days in Texas is as must, or you will start to feel dizzy and maybe even faint. I am not a water drinker myself, that’s why I was searching for some tips and tricks on how to spice it up (make it tastier).

I came across this great idea by detoxhq.net, so I started immediately to prep my water this way.

Quick tip before you get started; make sure you wash all your fruit before you add them to your drink

  1. Lime water: 1 lime (sliced), 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup ice cubs (squeeze one slice of lime directly into your water)
  2. Orange & blueberry water: 1 orange, 1/2 cup blueberries, 1 1/2 – 2 cups of water, 1/2 cup ice (squeeze one slice of orange directly into your water)
  3. Lemon and raspberry water: 1 lemon (sliced), 1/2 cup raspberries, 2 cups water, 1/2 cup ice cubs (squeeze one slice of lemon directly into your water)
  4. Strawberry & Honey water: 1/2 cup strawberries, 1-2 tsp. honey, 2 cups water (heat 1/2 cup of water and stir in the honey, combine with all other ingredients) 1/2 cup ice cubs

No.3 and 4 are my favorites, you can also boil a big pot of chamomile tea, let it cook and use it to make the above drinks!!!

  1. This is a great idea! I used to drink a whole lot of water but lately I noticed I haven’t been so faithful. I like this idea & I’m going to try it out to get back on track. I particularly like the lemon & raspberry recipe & I can’t wait to give it a shot tomorrow.
    Thanks for sharing!

    1. Oyindoubara, I realized that since I started drinking my water with fruit or chamomile tea, I drink more and feel better. It’s important especially now while I am pregnant.
      Let me know how you liked it, after you have tried making the raspberry drink!

      1. So I tried the drink yesterday afternoon while I was doing some work outside my home. I really loved the taste & having to eat the left over raspberries :). Thanks for sharing this, now I know what else I can do with such berries when I’m not in the mood for a smoothie.
