Strawberry-Watermelon Water


I’m still trying new flavored water combinations. This is a recent one and, truthfully, one of my favorites for taste. There are also nutrient factors. For example:

  • Watermelon and strawberries both have vitamins C and B6, potassium, and magnesium.
  • Strawberries have fiber, folate, and omega-3 fats.
  • Watermelon has vitamins A and B1.

Ingredients

4 strawberries, tops cut off, sliced

watermelon chunks, enough to fill the insert of the pitcher

ice

water

  1. Place the strawberries into the pitcher insert. Add enough watermelon chunks to fill the insert.
  2. Fill the pitcher half way with ice, put the insert into place, then add the water.
  3. Keep in the refrigerator.

Tips

  • Play around with the type of melons and berries you use for this recipe .
  • Add a some mint.
  • If you prefer a little sweetness, add honey.

Serving Suggestions

  • Serve the strawberry-watermelon water with a chicken salad.
  • This beverage would go well with any meal.
