I recently added a couple posts to this blog, Lemon Water and Lemon Water, For on the Go. It’s very important that, with the upcoming higher temperatures, we are being sure to keep ourselves hydrated. Especially in light of reports that it may be a hotter year than we are used to. Drinking the fruit waters I’m making (and posting about here) is a great way to combat dehydration issues.
Orange water has vitamin C and folate, like lemon water does, with a bit of a sweeter taste. The oranges will also provide your body with fiber, potassium, and calcium, among other nutrients.
I’m keeping these homemade vitamin waters going for three days in the refrigerator, adding fresh water when the pitcher nears half gone. Each day, the fruit flavor is noticed a little more.
- Peel the orange and section it. Cut the sections in half and place them in the pitcher. OR Slice the orange, cut the slices in half, and add them to the pitcher.
- Fill the pitcher half way with ice, then add the water.
- Keep in the refrigerator.
- Play around with the type of oranges you use for this recipe.
- Add a few slices of lemon.
- If you prefer a little sweetness, add honey.
- Serve the orange water with a Caesar salad.
- This beverage would go well with any meal.
