Homemade Real Vitamin Water!


I love making vitamin water at home, and especially now that I am back in Greece and bought some amazing fresh fruit and herbs! I want to share the recipe with you, I'm sure you will love it!

Today I decided to do an All Citrus water with spearmint, but you can use your imagination and have fun creating different flavours and using the flavours you like.

Here is what you will need:

1 lemon
1 pink grapefruit
1 lime
1 orange
2-3 spearmint leaves
Water, ice and a glass jar

First, wash the fruit and herb leaves very very well, use a sponge to remove all the dirt from the peel.

Cut all the fruit in very thin slices and slightly smash them with a wooden spoon, just enough to release some of the juices.

Fill half the jar with water and add the fruit and herbs.

Finally, add the ice and allow to infuse in the fridge for three to four hours or even better, overnight.

Some more tips...

You can refill the jar as you drink the water. Sometimes I also like to add some liquid or powdered vitamin C, which you can find in a pharmacy or health food stores. If you like your water sweet, just add some Truvia!
The vitamin water will last in the fridge for a about three days, it gets betters the longer it sits.

I hope you enjoyed this post and I will keep you posted with some new vitamin water recipes!

Have a beautiful day!

Lots of love
