|Natural Strawberry Water|
I know, choosing to drink water can be difficult at times. But, if you love strawberries as much as I do, try this recipe out. You will find yourself looking forward to your next glass!My garden strawberries are just about ready, so I am working on using up my frozen strawberries. Aldi’s also had fresh strawberries on sale this week for 99¢. Fresh or frozen both work well to make water with. It only takes a couple of minutes to make a pitcher full and it will disappear before you know it.
Materials Needed:About two handfuls of strawberries (fresh or frozen)
1 pitcher or 2qt mason jar
Anything else you would like to add (I like lime)
Method:Toss your strawberries in the bottom of your pitcher. Mash them up just a bit to release the juices. I use a meat tenderiser hammer, but even the back side of a spoon would work. Add Ice if desired or anything else (limes, herbs, other fruit) that sounds good. Put a few cubes of ice in, fill container to the top with water and swirl around just a bit.
I have found that you can refill the jug several times and still have good flavored water. After three days I toss my fruit and start again.
Now just sit back and enjoy your water. This adds a hint of sweetness and strawberry to the water. I like to add lime to my water. You could also add a bit of sugar if needed, but I think it is great without.
Hint:My water pitcher has a slotted pour spout. This keeps the large chunks of fruit in the pitcher but lets some of the smaller fruit pieces through.
I also like to add a strawberry on the rim of my glass to give me the Spa Strawberry Water feel; I also like to munch on while I’m drinking. Normally though, my children get to my strawberry before I do!
