I made a drastic life change and decided to give up diet soda today. It was kind of sudden and out of the blue, but it really needed to happen. I usually drink at least 3 diet sodas a day….which is terrible. So I have been experimenting with flavored water as a healthy alternative. And I’ve realized that water can taste even better than soda! Who knew. My favorite flavored water is made with:
- 1 large pitcher of water
- 10-12 chopped mint leaves
- 1 cup blueberries (frozen or fresh)
- 2 sliced lemons
- 1 sliced peach or nectarine
Throw everything together in a pitcher and let it steep over night. You can use fresh or frozen fruit – I always prefer fresh if it’s in season. You can always mix it up or throw in your favorite fruits.
