make your own cucumber infused spa water overnight

It’s one thing adding a slice of cucumber to a glass of water you’ve just poured, but it’s quite another waking up to a pitcher of ice cold water that’s been infusing for 8 hours in the fridge.

What a way to start the morning. My children agree  :)

– 1/2 cucumber

– 2 liters of water

Slice your cucumber. For extra cucumbery-goodness, slice again in halves. Add to a pitcher of 2 liters of filtered water (preferably covered so it doesn’t taste like the fridge) and allow to infuse for several hours. Overnight is perfect! No, this isn’t anything new and spectacular,  just a reminder to take a couple minutes of prep at night to enjoy a better morning.  Img via.

  1. I love the simplicity of it!

    Personally, I am a lemon slices in water kinda girl. It’s amazing how much more water I am able to consume by simply adding a few slices to a jug.

    1. I’m the exact same way…my husband too! If there’s just a hint of flavor (and not from a chemical like crystal lite!) I can drink SO much more!

    1. It’s so what my body needs first thing in the morning! Trying to make a habit of reaching for this BEFORE reaching for a coffee! :) Let me know if you like it when you give it a try!
