After sleeping through the worst part of my cold on Friday, I knew that my focus for Saturday should be re-hydration. Now, I'm very good about sipping through lots of water during the day but it is hard when it's cold outside. I would much prefer a hot cup of cocoa! While I was grabbing a few ice cubes for my large glass of water, I noticed a bag of frozen raspberries. Umm, I also had a lemon left over from the Thanksgiving cooking.
I used the frozen raspberries instead of ice cubes and dropped in a couple slices of lemon. Absolutely lovely!! The water looks inviting and there is just a hint of fruit flavor. I simply drank the water with the fruit floating in it. After the berries thawed, I ate them and dumped some new frozen berries into my glass.
This is a photo of my improved fruit/water drink. I went to Safeway on Monday morning and bought some more frozen raspberries, blueberries and fresh mint. At the office I found a wide-mouth quart canning jar and made up my concoction! Yummy!
