80--- Tangerine Mint Water

I am SO happy that sparkling water with natural fruit essences is such a hit!  I can thankfully recommend a calorie-free beverage to my patients that doesn't contain artificial sweeteners!

If you're looking to add some flavor to your water, this is also a great solution! AND you get some bonus antioxidants too!  

Tangerine Mint Water
Makes one gallon

2 tangerines, washed well, seeded and sliced into thin slices
10 spearmint leaves
1 gallon filtered water
Ice (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a pitcher and place it in the fridge for at least 4 hours prior to drinking!  

Note: If you plan to not drink all of your water within 24 hours, discard the tangerine slices and mint leaves after one day.  The water will stay flavored without them!


  1. I love infused water. Thanks for the tip to discard the infused material. I never think to do that then get irritated when it is all gross!

  2. I wanted to stop drinking soda pop and sweet drinks so I started drinking tangerine and mint water for about 2 months now my body feels great and my skin looks fantastic if you want to share a great drink with someone who would like to stop drinking sweet drinks share this recipe.
