Citrus Water

I never peel the lemons and limes before placing them in the pitcher, but I have always peeled the orange. I have no idea why, it is just something I have done all along. Today I didn’t peel the orange. I quartered it, and halved two of the quarters. The other two quarters of the orange were used for something else.

With the addition of the orange, the vitamin C levels go up (versus what the Lemon-Lime Water contained.) Vitamins A and B6 are also evident, packing quite the nutritional punch.


1 lemon

1/2 a lime

1/2 an orange


  1. Rinse the fruit.
  2. Slice the lemon, and place the slices into the pitcher.
  3. Do the same with the half of lime.
  4. Quarter the half of the orange you will be using, and place the quarters in the pitcher with the rest of the fruit.
  5. Add the water, cover and refrigerate.


  • Try piercing the citrus fruit before adding it to the pitcher.
  • You can also squeeze 1 slice or section of each a little, letting the juices settle on the bottom of the pitcher before adding water.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve this beverage with breakfast for an added nutrition boost.

Happy sipping!
