Keeping hydrated in the summer.

Started by CarolineH   on 14 June 2017 at 10:08

Hello everyone, Today is particularly warm and hopefully it is the start of things to come. I do know that many people find it difficult to know what to drink that is sugar free and refreshing. Ofcourse in the hot weather it is very important to keep well hydtrated.

It is worth remembering that all of the lovely fruit teas that are available are really good made and then chilled in the fridge. They make very refreshing drinks that are lovely and cool. Raspberry tea is particularly good.

Also fresh mint leaves put in a mug and infused with hot water is very refreshing sipped warm but again cooled in the fridge.

Naturally sprung fizzy water is great with added chopped up fruit and a squeeze of lemon or lime juice added.

You can also make ice cubes out of the drinks and add these to cold water or crush them into a slush and sip through a straw or eat with a spoon.

If anyone has any other ideas I am sure that others would like to hear about them.
