I try new water recipes almost everyday, it is a fun way for me to be creative in the kitchen and keeps me from getting bored with water. I go to my local Trader Joe’s and get different cool frozen fruits, and try them out. Mango happened to be my find for this month and right off the bat this was delicious.
On some of the comment boards people have been confused that these zero calorie all natural drinks will be as sweet as a soda, they are not. This is a hint of a flavor, but a great way to train your taste buds to like water. Try it out yourself, but have an open mind and just add a little more fruit if you want it sweeter.
Makes 1 pitcher, refill 3-5 times until the flavor dissipates
1/2 cup Frozen Mango chunks
1/2 Lime thinly sliced
Sprig of Mint- Optional
Combine all ingredients into the bottom of a pitcher, cover with 1-2 cups (depending on size of pitcher) of ice then cover with water. Place in fridge for 3 hours before drinking.
The fruit should last about 24 hours, after that replace and wash out your pitcher. Check out more Day Spa Waters, I have several with mango.
