Nature Gurl Vitamin Water

vit water This is one of my favorite ways to hydrate on a hot summer day. Sometimes  plain old water doesn’t quite hit the spot. This fruit infused water is all natural, with nothing artificial added so you can feel great about what you are putting in your body. What could be more natural than fresh organic fruit, loaded with vitamins and minerals, that our bodies already recognize as nourishment? Store bought vitamin waters and sports drinks are usually loaded with all kinds of crazy, unnatural ingredients, preservatives and coloring. Who even knows what all that stuff is or where it comes from. This refreshing drink is super easy and absolutely beautiful. You could use whatever fruits you like or have on hand, play around with the flavor combos and see what you like! For this version: In a mason jar I squeezed the juice from 1/2 a lime, added a handful of frozen organic berries (strawberries, raspberries and blackberries) that  I had in my freezer (but fresh fruit works great too) and a spring of mint from my  garden. Fill jar with filtered water, stir and cover. Let it sit in the fridge over night or for a few hours and enjoy!  I always eat the fruit at the bottom to make sure I get in all the yummy nutrients. What flavor combos sound good to you? vit water grass
