Two weeks ago, I went to Whole Foods with my grandmother and saw the most brilliant way to convince yourself to drink water– fruit infused spa waters. Yes, I caved and bought the $1.50 bottle of pineapple and mint spa water, but only with the intention of replicating the results. Last week during my usually trip to Ralph’s, I picked up a whole pineapple for a cool two bucks and a huge batch of mint for 99 cents. It took me less than 10 minutes to assemble these adorable mason jars full of yummy looking water. I left them overnight to soak up all the sweet pineapple juice and refreshing mint flavor and tada delicious spa water. I’m excited to share any new flavor combinations I find.
1 whole pineapple, cored and cubed
1 bunch, mint
Containers (Mason Jars, Nalegene Water Bottles, etc.)
Water, tap or filtered, up to you and your location
Core the pineapple- cut off the top then carefully cut the sides off. Take extra care to core the “eyes” these are bitter and hard to chew.
Once cored, cut the pineapple into chunks.
Depending on the size of your container, add pineapple and mint leaves to the jar (I put one ring of pineapple and 2 sprigs of mint per 8oz).
Refrigerate overnight, then enjoy!
