Make Your Own Vitamin Water

You have probably heard of it before, vitamin water or  infused water . Now you can of course buy this in the supermarket, but the question is whether this ‘water’ is really good for you. Fortunately, you can easily make vitamin water yourself. In this article we show you how to do this and show two examples, one vitamin water recipe with lemon, cucumber and mint and one recipe with cucumber, cherry tomatoes, mandarins, basil and rosemary.

Drinking water is healthy

Water is, as you probably know, very important for our body. Water regulates your body temperature, transports waste, vitamins and nutrients and so on. A woman’s body consists of 52 percent water and that of a man even 63%. If you then know that your body loses an average of 2.5 liters of fluid per day (including breathing, sweat and urine) then you understand that we have to make up for that deficit. And preferably in the most healthy way possible :). Your diet already provides a good amount of water (about 1 liter), but the remaining part (about 1.5 liters) must be supplemented by drinking.

Make your own vitamin water

Vitamin water is then a welcome addition. For children who just want to drink some water or just enjoy themselves! Below we have described two ‘recipes’ for you. Keep in mind that the water needs about 2 to 8 hours to get to taste and that it can be kept in the fridge for about 3 days.

Vitamin water with lemon, cucumber and mint

Necessities

  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 1 lemon
  • Fresh mint (number of mint leaves is sufficient)
  • Optional: ice cubes
  • A pot or carafe to put in the water

  • Start by cutting the cucumber into small slices. Then place them in the carafe and press them a little so that some of the moisture in the cucumber is already released.
  • Then cut the lemon into slices and place them on top of the cucumber. Also press the lemon slices a little so that lemon juice is released.

  • Cut a few fresh mint leaves and rinse them briefly under the tap. Now place them on top of the lemon slices.
  • Place a few ice cubes on top of the mint leaves.
  • Add cold water and put the jug or carafe in the fridge for 2 to 8 hours. The longer the water is in the refrigerator, the better the flavors and vitamins can mix with the water. The fresh vitamin water can be kept in the fridge for around 3 days.
