Cucumber-Lime Water {Munchie Monday}

Last night I went to bed thinking that I had forgotten something. Then, it occurred to me----I had forgotten the Munchie Monday post! With all of the nice weather, I have been starting to lose track of the days. I will probably have no concept of time before Summer Break even starts!

To go with the beautiful weather, my post this week is for a refreshing, lightly flavored water. Some of my flavors of the moment happen to be lime and cucumber. It is amazingly easy to freshen up your water a bit with just a little fruit! We have only been flavoring our water this way over the past year or so. I am kicking myself for not doing it sooner!

Ingredients:

cold water
1 lime
1/2 cucumber (we used an English cucumber)

Directions:

Juice your lime. Then, rinse and slice your cucumber. Slices should be about 1/4 inch thick. Put the lime juice and cucumber slices in a pitcher. Fill the pitcher with water. Then, refrigerate for a few hours to let the flavors mix and diffuse.

  1. Hi there!
    This looks to be a refreshing drink. This is the first time I have seen this drink. I love cucumber and limes so I will be trying this. I drink plenty of water and it does get boring at times.
    Seen you on Twitter and following you now :)

  2. Great idea! I will have to try this soon. My sons were goofing around at dinner the other night and put cucumbers in each other's water glasses. They wer supposed to be eating them. My oldest left the cucumbers in the water and said it was pretty good. I bet he would gladly try this.
