Cucumber, Lemon and Mint Infused Water

Cucumber, lemon and mint infused water is a delicious way to keep hydrated and quench your thirst on a hot summer day.

I used to drink a lot of diet soda back in the day. And by a lot, I mean about 1-2 cans a day. Which, to me, is a lot. Maybe to you it’s not. I know it was diet so I wasn’t really getting all that extra sugar, but it was still soda. And it still wasn’t good for me.

When I was pregnant with Kelsey, I cut back on the soda big time and started drinking lots of water. The things we do for our kids, right? Drinking water instead of soda is a habit that has stuck and I actually prefer water over soda.

There are some days, though, that I really miss having flavor in my drinks. Especially on a hot summer day. I just need a little something, something in my water without having to reach for a diet soda or other artificially flavored drink.

Homemade infused water is the perfect solution. My favorite combination is cucumber, lemon and mint. I have an herb garden and every summer I have a ton of mint. It seriously grows like a weed so adding it to my water is a perfect way to keep the mint under control and keep it from taking over the rest of my herb garden.

If you’re a little bit skeptical about having cucumber in your water, don’t be! It gives such an amazing and fresh taste. I love it! The cucumber flavor is actually my favorite part of this infused water.

I’ve seen this infused water recipe all over Pinterest listed as an infused water and as a detox water. Now, I don’t really know enough about detoxing to go into details about the health benefits of it, so please don’t ask. I don’t want to give anybody misguided advice. I do know this though, this water is refreshing and delicious. Anything else is a bonus. Enjoy!

I found this same recipe a month ago except it had limes added, and it was called a detox water. I found the limes made it taste too bitter so I eliminated them. I've been making this nightly and taking it to work with me for the past 2 weeks. I am 40 yrs old and have drank multiple cokes a day my whole life and always hated water. I'm proud to say I've been soda free for 2 weeks (tried one yesterday and didn't even want it). I can't wait to see the lbs start shedding and to start feeling better. I mentally feel better knowing I'm not putting those chemicals and all that sugar in my body anymore. This is the way to make a water hater into a water lover. ❤
