This is a colorful and refreshing drink but it is also healthy. Strawberries are packed with antioxidants and vitamin C; lemon offers similar benefits plus it has antibiotic and anti-carcinogenic properties; and mint helps your digestive system.
Fun fact – by using mint in your infused water recipes you are following in the footsteps of the ancient Greeks and Romans. They also used mint to flavor their water.
This infused water recipe is a fusion of flavors that taste as good as they look – sweet strawberries & raspberries, sour lemon, and mint. Mushing the ingredients up a bit adds even more flavors.
1 cup of sliced strawberries
1 cup of raspberries
2 lemons (sliced)
1/4 cup of fresh mint
1. After slicing the strawberries and lemons put them in a pitcher with the raspberries
2. Add the mint and ice
3. Fill the pitcher with water and put in the refrigerator
4. Leave for at least 10 minutes – the longer you leave it the more the flavors will infuse
