Watermelon Cucumber Water

Our simplest cooler and our favorite. No sugar, no sweeteners, no chemicals, and no calories. You will be shocked at how much fruit and herb flavor seeps into your Fruit Water as it sits in the fridge.  

Ingredients

For Watermelon, Mint, and Cucumber Water

  • 6 thin slices cucumber
  • 1 quarter small watermelon, cut into thin triangular pieces, rind removed (about 5-6 pieces)
  • 1 large sprig fresh mint (8-10 leaves)

For Raspberry, Ginger, and Thai Basil Water

  • ¾ cup fresh raspberries
  • 4-5 thin slices fresh ginger, skin on
  • 1 large sprig Thai Basil

Directions

Fill a 75-95 ounce glass pitcher with fresh cold water and add a handful of each ingredient. Chill 4 hours or overnight to give the fruit time to flavor the water. Fruit water will taste delicious all day.

Fruit Shopping Tip

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Fruit Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
