We’re always told to stay hydrated, and this cucumber lemon mint water will do the job!

Why You’ll Love This Recipe

  • It comes together in under 10 minutes, and requires very little clean-up!
  • Although it is infused, this cucumber lemon mint water is first and foremost just that: WATER! If you want to drink more water, you may as well do it in style!
  • This is a perfect refreshment on a hot day, with a beautiful subtle flavor yet without any sugar or artificial sweeteners!

  • Another reason to have this drink in the summer is that you can use seasonal produce and reduce your carbon footprint.

How to Make This Recipe

Start by slicing cucumbers and strawberries. Squeeze the juice out of the lemons.

Next, add the ingredients into a large pitcher and allow it to infuse for at least 20 minutes. If you like, you can add ice or some lemon slices to your drink as well. That’s all!

Hack It!

  • Feel free to experiment with your ingredients. For example, you might decide to add some grapefruit juice to your drink, or a sprig of rosemary. Even better if you grow fruit or herbs in your yard!
  • Why not use it as a mixer? Next time you’re making a white wine spritzer, I encourage you to try it with cucumber lemon mint water instead of lemonade.
  • Don’t throw away the fruit! Cucumber, mint, and strawberries are safe to eat for most herbivorous pets, like rabbits or guinea pigs. Alternatively, they can be composted.
  • This drink will last a couple of days in the fridge, so you can make a large batch to save you time in the long run.
