Whether you’re running errands or sipping on these refreshing drinks throughout the school day, they are sure to give you the healthy benefits every student needs. They taste delicious and each ingredient has its own way of keeping your body healthy.

Here’s what you need:

  2. Limes
  3. Lemons
  4. Mint leaves

  7. Cucumbers
  8. Any other fruits/ ingredients you want

What to do:

  1. Wash all of the fruit and other ingredients

  3. Fill the water bottle less than half way with ice and water
  4. Add the fruit and ingredients
  5. Fill the rest of the bottle with ice and water

This time I chose to make two different water bottles. The first one is a more sweet and fruity combination filled with oranges, lemons and strawberries. The second is super refreshing, filled with lemons, limes, cucumbers and mint leaves.
