If love was water, I’d give you the whole sea
I am trying to stay hydrated all the time and I had fallen into drinking soda lately because in spite of my defiance, my husband has been sneaking soda inside the house. So to make him convert into the healthier way of hydrating, I was able to make these various flavored drinks which were inspired from Yummy Life.
These watered flavors looks so lovely and will make you drink more water even though you are not thirsty. I usually drink mine with a straw. I bought a whole set of pint and half jars plus the plastic leads. It cost me around $ 13.00 for the whole thing. I think it is a good investment though because how much do we usually spend with sodas? As of this writing, I just stuck in flavored cucumber with sage herb and cucumber with mint in the fridge for tomorrow’s consumption. I do not add sugar in my flavored water but if you are just starting to wean from sweet drinks, you can add a little bit of sugar until you are ready to let go of sweet drinks.
Below are the various mixtures I came up with. You can create your own. My favorite among these are the strawberry with basil, cucumber with basil, raspberry-peach with mint. I like all of them though..
These flavored water are also very easy to make. You do not have to prepare all the flavors as I did. I just prepared a bunch of them , since I made several flavors for this blog. And since I cannot drink all of them, I froze the flavored water in the freezer and I just take them out and put it in the fridge the night before to thaw.
