Skipping softdrinks and going low on coffee and tea basically leaves water as a main option to drink.
As this is also what we historically are made to drink, this does not have to be bad. Some though, get bored and sometimes want something additional to have a change of taste without adding a lot of unnecessary things
An easy way to add taste to your drinking water can be to add different kinds of veggies and berries.
If you keep still water in the fridge you can try to add some of the following for variety
- frozen raspberries
- frozen strawberries
- frozen blueberries
- cucumber slices
- slices of orange
- slices of lemon
- frozen cranberries
- bites of celery (sounds odd but really good, even if you normally don’t like celery)
- leafs of peppermint
You can also try to boil your still water with spices and herbs before letting it cool off
Here’s a tip on a great drink you can use all year round but really tastes like christmas
As a bonus, we can inform you that it is also very useful and helps a tired and sluggish lymphatic system.
It’s as simple as this:
- 3 bay leaves
- 5 carnations (dried pistils that you can use here instead of tucking into oranges)
- 1 Liter of water
How to :
Pour 1 liter of water into a casserole. Bring it to boil with bay leaves and carnations. Turn of the heat on the stove and leave to cool off. Strain away the leaves and pistils or leave them in your serving jug for decoration. Can be served chilled or tempered – all depending on how you prefer.
If you want the extra luxury and party feeling – carbonate with your soda stream, add a couple of drops of lemon juice and decorate with an olive or some frozen raspberries and you have a an excellent no-sugar and non-alcoholic drink to feast on.
