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
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!
