The sun is shining, and the forecast is finally heating up. To celebrate the start of warmer days, I’m creating the ultimate thirst-quencher: cucumber melon water. It’s beyond refreshing, and delicious — not to mention, simple. (winning!) It’s the perfect drink to hydrate while soaking up the sun. Oh, and it reminds me of being at a hotel spa, so that certainly counts for something.
Since Chicago has really hot, humid summers — It’s extremely important to hydrate. (Especially for us pregnant mamas) Another go-to has always been eos products. I keep them with me everywhere, and they’re the perfect accessory to take on the go. Did I mention they’re adorable? I’m currently crushing on the spring 2017 limited edition pack. They have cucumber melon (do you sense a theme here?) and coconut milk — feels so refreshing on my lips while sitting poolside. The hand lotion is another must, and comes in the cutest colors/scents. It contains aloe, antioxidants and nourishing shea butter. Seriously, isn’t the packaging the best? It’s my favorite thing to throw in my beach bag — great for sharing, too.
CUCUMBER MELON WATER
- 1/2 english cucumber, sliced
- 1/2 honeydew melon
- 6 cups of ice water
- Sugar (optional)
- Take a vegetable peel, and slice the melon over a bowl (so you can get the juices)
- Place the melon strips, and juice in the pitcher
- Add slices of cucumber
- Pour in the water (and sugar if you want to make it sweeter)
- Serve immediately, or keep in fridge for 24 hours
How are you staying refreshed this summer?
