The positive side benefit of these pretty waters: Fresh fruits & herbs will make you want to sip all day!
WITH FRESH FRUITS & HERBS
Refuel your body with Pretty Waters that taste good, look good – and make you feel even better!
This fruity summer drink is one of my favorites – almost like a healthy daiquiri, it tastes so good! First, puree the strawberries, then mix together with freshly pressed lime juice and sweeten with some agave syrup. Fill in a glass jar with sparkling water and fresh mint!
- Freshly pressed lime juice
- Agave syrup
- Sparkling water
- Fresh Mint leaves
For this tasty lemonade, you need melon, tonic water, cucumbers and fresh limes. I used a charentais melon (orange fruit flesh), but water melon is perfect too. I love the combination of hydrating melon and cucumbers! Cut the melon into pieces and blend in a mixer. Add freshly pressed lime juice and tonic water (or sparlking water). Strain through a sieve and add slices of fresh cucumbers!
- Charentais melon (or water melon)
- Tonic Water or sparkling water
- Fresh lime juice
GO GREEN! with this smoothie-like summer drink you can`t go wrong. Blend chopped green apples, kiwis and cucumber with some water until the consistency is smooth. Add some agave syrup according to your taste and strain through a sieve.
- Green apples
- Agave syrup to sweeten
Water is LIFE. Give this essential element a kick by adding cucumber, lemon, ginger & fresh basil! The subtle flavours will make you want to drink all waters in the world – and must importantly keep you hydrated on any hot day! Fill a glass jar with cucumber slices, lemon, ginger & fresh basil leaves. Add sparlking water – and let the flavours do their magic!
Serving Tip: Refresh the summer drinks with ice cubes for an extra cooling effect! As decoration, cut a cucumber with a peeler in thin slices lenghtwise, leave the skin to make it look even more appetizing!
