During the summer months, your kids and maybe even you are looking for a great drink to cool down. But you might be a little tired of just drinking water.
In this House Works, Moms Everyday Blogger, Alison Bickel, has a suggestion on how you can avoid turning to sugar-filled juice drinks or pop. She has a tip on how to flavor water, naturally.
Alison turns to making a pitcher of fresh fruit water. In the Latin community, this is called “aguas frescas.” A few slices of lemon, lime and orange makes a glass of cold water even more refreshing.
Alison's favorite combinations include a few lemon slices along with some sweet, ruby-red strawberries. Instant strawberry lemonade without all the added sugar!
A few flavor combination suggestions…
Strawberries and lemons
Lemon, orange and lime slices
Strawberries and blueberries
Make sure your water is chilled and give the lemons, limes or oranges a little squeeze to release the juices as you add them to the water.
