I think one of the easiest and most important goals for your health is to drink more water. Even when I’m being intentional about drinking water I almost always fall short. Drinking water gives me more energy, clearer skin, keeps me from mindless munching, and keeps my digestive system on track. Of course, plain water can get boring after a while.
Back in November, I reviewed the Soda Stream Power, a sparkling water maker and shared a fun punch recipe. Our Soda Stream Power is still getting lots of use and I love using it to create my own flavored sparkling waters.
Sparkling water makes me feel like I’m drinking pop (or soda if you’re not from the Midwest), without any of the negatives like sugar, chemicals, and artificial colors. When I DIY my sparkling water I don’t have the expensive price tag that comes with most store-bought brands. Today I’m sharing a favorite sparkling water recipe, Strawberry Lemon Sparkling Water.
This sparkling water recipe is simple and you can also use plain sparkling water bought at any grocery to make it!
- 1 liter plain sparkling water
- 6-8 strawberries, sliced
- 1-2 drops therapeutic grade lemon essential oil (I use Young Living) or 3-4 fresh lemon slices
- Add strawberries, lemon oil or slices to sparkling water. Gently move the bottle in a circular motion. Let chill in refrigerator at least 2 hours. Serve with ice if desired.
Doesn’t that sound refreshing? Definitely some water consumption I can get behind. I’m trying to drink 6 16 ounce glasses of liquid a day and this sparkling water recipe is definitely helping me to not get bored. I’m looking forward to more fun sparkling water creations…I think a blackberry lime and an orange mint may be in my future!
If you loved this recipe don’t forget to pin it and share it with your friends!
Do you struggle to drink enough water? How do you get all your water intake in? What sparkling water combination would you create?
