Today I bring you a healthy post to get your body bikini ready for Summer..
Strawberry Mint Flavored Water
Is a perfect summer´s drink. Made with natural water and infused with frozen strawberries and fresh mint leaves.
Have you ever wondered how to make strawberry flavored water?
Well in this post I show you how to make Strawberry Mint Flavored Water which includes fresh mint leaves. The mint adds that taste of freshness that we´ve come to love in a summer´s drink. That´s why we love mojitos so much isn´t it? (or is it just me *smile*)
Just look at these images. Isn´t this the most beautiful water you have ever seen? I wanted to mention too, that you could easily swop the natural water for distilled. I know many people (for example my hubby) would prefer that option.
Flavored water recipes are the new trend!
Didn´t you hear? *smile* Everywhere you look there are recipes on how to make flavored water at home. On Pinterest (check out my “Is it Summer yet?” board for inspiration), Facebook, etc etc. I love all the flavor options available but decided to use what I had in my fridge which are stacks of frozen berries in my freezer (I always stock up on them – I get mine from Lidl a German Supermarket chain here in Spain – in the Summer for my smoothies) and fresh mint leaves.
The key is to make sure this strawberry mint flavored water is ice cold. I would suggest you add a good heap of ice cubes to your glass before filling it with the strawberry and mint infused water.
Make your own flavored water!
Here are some more ideas for flavored water:
- mint and pineapple
- lemon and blueberries
- strawberry and basil
- lemon and lime
- lemon and mint
- orange and sage
- rosemary and lemon
- lavender and lime
The possibilities are endless! Just think about your favourite infused tea flavors. That´s a great starting point to give you the inspiration to create your own flavored water recipes *smile*.
Moderation is key!
As much as I love eating desserts, I think my blog confirms that, I also love being healthy. Every time I feel myself getting out of control, I fight hard to take the control back of living a healthy and balanced lifestyle.
I´m by no means a health guru, nor do I believe (or can) in avoiding sugar all the time (if you do manage to do it, I salute you). I do however believe as Mothers we need to look after the health and wellbeing of our families (and that includes ourselves).
I´ve started doing my regular exercise routine again and I already feel much healthier. This time I´ve decided to expand my activity list and therefore have included some strength training. The stronger I am the more energy I have to do the things I love and that includes this blog!
Let´s get crafty!
If you like these cute little tags I made to label my water, let me know in the comments below! I would love to know if you guys love diy crafts as much as I do? To make them I used a:
- a scalloped punch circle
- green cardboard paper
- a hole punch
- colored markers and
I hope you guys have a healthy and happy week!
