Stay hydrated with Spa Waters - by Cheryl Lecroy


Spa water for cancer survivors

These infused waters will help you stay hydrated through the summer months. AND they are beautiful and refreshing! 


Try these refreshing combinations:

  1. Lemon, lime and mint. (my all-time favorite) (1gallon water, 2 sprigs mint (15+ leaves) ½ lemon, ½ lime.

  2. Strawberry and kiwi. Strawberries can be whole or halved, green removed. Kiwi should be firm and peeled.

  3. Cucumber and mint. Cucumber can be strong, 9 – 12 slices is plenty

  4. Cucumber, lime and lemon.

  5. Lemon, lime and orange.

  6. Lemon.

  7. Orange and lemon.

  8. Peaches. This is beautiful! Add as many peaches as desired.

  9. Rosemary.

  10. Rosemary and cucumber


Spa waters are not only beautiful and refreshing,they are also good for energy and hydration. Put as much fruit in the water as you like (depending on desired taste) and let the water sit for at least 30 minutes before drinking.


Directions:

  • Fill a clear glass pitcher with cool water, and add a few ice cubes if desired.

  • Wash and prepare all fruit and herbs. Pat dry. Slice chosen fruit(s) into uniformly sized slices- this varies depending on the size of the pitcher. For a pretty presentation, add herbs by the stem.

  • Make sure fruit is not too large or thick – large chunky fruit can overpower the flavor and make water seem pulpy and more like juice. Spa water should only have the hint of the taste of fruit and herbs.

  • Put the slices into the pitcher(s), shake a little, and wait a few minutes for the taste to set in. Lemon, lime, orange, mint can steep longer (2 – 3 hours) without the fruit/herbs becoming soft. For waters with cucumber, peach, strawberries, or kiwi serve within ½ an hour of preparing so the fruit maintains the structure. Use only fresh firm fruit. Avoid over ripe or bruised fruit.

  • Sample water before serving to make sure there is just a hint of flavor and little to no pulp.
