Summer Infused Water

With the heat, it’s so important to avoid getting dehydrated and infused water is my favourite way to drink more water without having to think about it. Fill your water bottle or glass with these ingredients–it tastes so good you’ll keep drinking throughout the day.

Ingredients:
Sprig of fresh mint
Slices of cucumber
Still water
Ice (optional)

Directions:
Insert green ingredients in a bottle or glass first before pouring water over them to get a stronger infusion.
