Welcome to Thirsty Thursday! Last week we talked about the benefits of drinking infused water and shared a delicious strawberry & mint water recipe. This week we are featuring a simple, yet refreshing recipe infusing cucumbers and mint! Did you know that cucumbers are low in saturated fat, very low in cholesterol and sodium and are a good source of vitamin A, pantothenic acid, magnesium, phosphorus and manganese, and a very good source of vitamin C, vitamin K and potassium? Who knew!?
Cucumber and Mint Infused Water
- 2 quarts filtered water
- 1 cucumber sliced thin
- Few sprigs of mint
Wash and rinse cucumber and mint sprigs. In a 2 quart pitcher combine water, cucumber slices and mint sprigs. Chill at least 2 hours. Serve over ice.
