Spring has arrived and we are now experiencing warmer weather – yes! At least that’s the case in the U.S. I have never been so excited for spring. Something about last winter made me loooooong for it to be over. Oh! I know! It was being pregnant with baby Amora. Check out my personal Instagram to see adorable pictures of her here.
Here is what it was about winter. It’s simple: winter + pregnancy = not good! There!
It’s like, gravity is not on your side already as it is, but add cold to the fact that you cannot fit any of your winter coats (and to buy one is a fortune!), with the idea of that thing called gravity not being on your side and yet ice being everywhere?! Yeah… I couldn’t wait for winter to be over.
Anyhoo, during pregnancy one thing that was extremely important even in the winter was lots of water (I know, water and winter do not go together, huh? ) …. Well, I am happy to report though, during that time I was religious about drinking water, but now post pregnancy, I have went rogue.
Yet, I have found the solution!
Hydrating and addicting infused water. That’s right! Today, in honor of spring I wanted to get you kicking with some refreshing water ideas. And this Strawberry Mint infused water is so exciting for that reason!
Firstly, strawberries are perfect this time of year heading into the summer. Secondly, I knew that I loved fresh mint in hot tea, but never really tried it in a cold beverage.
How about all the benefits of herbs and fruit adding a great flavor to your water? I am telling you, this strawberry mint infused water not only looks refreshing, but it tastes great!
May you bask in the joys of this recipe, and if you love it, come back and let me know. I know you’re busy, but I love hearing from you!
- 8 oz. distilled water
- 6 fresh strawberries, sliced
- 6-8 fresh mint leaves, stems removed
- A handful of ice
- Add all ingredients to a 10 oz. glass jar, mix, and allow time for infusion. The longer the water sits, the better :)
May you be refreshed :) ~Bella
