Happy hydrating: hydration solutions

Using different herbs, spices and fruits in water is a great way to enhance the flavor (and get added nutritional benefits). Here are some of my favorite combinations to add some variety!  


  • Cilantro
  • Mint


  • Frozen berries or cherries
  • Watermelon or cantaloupe
  • Cucumbers (ok, this is a vegetable, not a fruit)
  • Lemons
  • Lime
  • Orange


  • Turmeric
  • Ginger
  • Cayenne pepper

Try these combinations:

Warming solutions (great in the winter)

  • Lemon, ginger cayenne water
  • Orange, turmeric, ginger water (cinnamon optional)

Cooling solutions (great in the summer)

  • Watermelon, cucumber water
  • Lime and mint water
