Thankful Friday ~Homemade Vitamin Water

Wow, we have been BUSY!!! Hence the reason there's such a gap between these posts. =)

So, there's this REALLY cool website called Pinterest and on it, it showed how to make homemade Vitamin water. I really, really, REALLY like vitamin water, but hate paying for, well, water. So I decided to make my own.


              ~Cast of Characters~
Strawberries, Mint, Rhubarb, Water, Stevia, Cherries, Raspberries, and more mint.

I made 2 varieties, Strawberry Rhubarb Mint and Cherry Raspberry Mint. 

I'll show you how to do Strawberry Rhubarb Mint first. 
 It's ingredients are: Strawberries, Rhubarb, Mint, Water and Stevia. Pretty simple. This ain't rocket science, folks. ;)

First, wash the Strawberries, Mint and Rhubarb.

Then chop them up.

Then plonk the chopped up herbs/berries into a mason jar and fill with water.

I then set it aside and started on the Cherry flavored water.

 Here are the lovely ingredients: Mint, Cherries, Raspberries, Water and Stevia.

Repeat all the above steps. Wash, chop, put in jar and fill up with water.

Then once the jars are filled up with water, I like to add a few drops of Stevia. 

Then you let them sit and infuse for awhile, about 12 hours or so.

And there you have it!!! =)
