This 3 ingredient Cucumber Mint Water is ready in 5 minutes and is SO refreshing! A healthy, calorie and sugar free drink for the Summer!
This is THE water that actually made Mr. FFF drink water.
Seriously. The guy lives on coffee and barely drinks any water. The only time I can usually convince him to drink water is if it’s coconut water in tropical white moscato sangria or blueberry mojitos.
But then I made this ULTRA fresh cucumber water and now he actually asks me to make it which, duh, I WILLINGLY do because it’s so stinking easy you will wonder why you haven’t been making flavored water forever.
Plus, if it was Saturday night, you could add a splash of white rum if you wanted to get the party started, you know. 😉
