We are back from our trip and I found something great I had to share with all of you!
I really love a glass of crystal light or a diet coke on a hot day but I worry about the splenda and all the artificial sugars that are in diet drinks. We will be trying to get pregnant soon and I haven't heard great things about them especially when you are expecting.
My refreshing alternative is cucumber water!
It really is quite yummy and so great on a hot day. Best off all it's all natural so I don't have to worry if I drink an entire pitcher. All that you have to do is add thin slices of cucumber to a pitcher or glass of ice water. My cousins who showed it to be let it soak in for a little bit but I don't think that's necessary. They also like to add a slice or two of lemon as well. The slices are great floating in the top of the glass and are a nice little crunchy snack at the end!
I made 4 Quarts of it today and added almost all of a very long but skinny cucumber.
Hope you enjoy!
