Hey One Dog Woof Readers, I’m Emily from The Benson Street. I love to blog about holidays, quick crafts and recipes. I am excited to be sharing with you one of my secrets for drinking more water and less sugary, carbonated drinks. Fruit infused waters are a great way to keep refreshed and healthy. One of my favorite infused waters is Lemon Lime Infused Water.
I love flavored beverages, but I hate all the calories and sugar. Eating more healthy can be a challenge, but it doesn’t mean giving up flavor. I decided to mix some great citrus fruits for a soda inspired beverage. Sprite, 7Up, lemon and lime were meant for each other. They are great in regular water, but I’ve added a secret ingredient to sweeten the deal.
Honey!!! It is a great alternative to sugar. It is natural and has a wealth of health benefits. Even lemons and limes have their health benefits.
To mix up Lemon Lime Infused Water, I used:
- one lemon
- one lime
- 1 tsp honey
- crushed ice
First wash lemon and lime really well. Dry.
Slice lemon and lime in circles and cut in half.
Add honey to a glass. Fill with water. Stir.
Squeeze some lemon and lime slices in glass. Add slices and ice to glass. Stir and enjoy.
This works great in a water bottle too. Add all the ingredients and just shake the bottle to mix.
I love water with just plain old lemon and lime, but sometimes it just doesn’t hit my sweet drink tooth. So adding the honey gives it a little bit of a sweet flair. Helping me to drink more water like I should.
What are your tricks for drinking more water?
