Natural ways to make water tasty and healthy with the help of fruit and / or herbs.
The disadvantage of purchased packs of juice or bottles of soft drinks:
-There are often a lot of sugars and other unnatural additives.
-Vitamins and minerals are often gone by the way of preparation.
- They often cost a lot of money.
-And the packaging is a huge burden on the environment.
Tap water (or purchased water) is the alternative for most people, but sometimes also bores. Why filter tapwater. Alkaline water, is the nature of water. Did you know that you are very tasty and healthy ways to make your own drinks? With the help of fruit and herbs you can make water tasty and healthy. Mango Iced Tea Mango Iced Tea
Mango Iced tea
Required: Ripe Mango, Lime and a nice cooled tea. (I used the Green Tea with Lemongrass from Simon Levelt)
Mix the mango with the juice of the lime and a cup of (cold) tea through the blender or use a hand blender. Serve cold, possibly with a few ice cubes. Very tasty!! Those who love sweet can "blend" a little honey.
(Do not make the tea with boiling water, let the water cool to about 80 degrees and then mix it with the tea herbs)
Coconut milk, Delicious !! You pour about 400 ml of water over 100 grams of grated or fresh coconut. I just put it in the blender and let it soak overnight. Sifted this morning and I had a delicious creamy milk. You can also use this milk to make pancakes or chocolate milk. You do keep a lot of pulp. I have made a smoothie: a tablespoon of coconut juice, cup of water, apple and 2 dates. Possibly as breakfast with muesli through it. I have more coconut pulp left, here I can make a smoothie for a couple of days, or stir with a cake batter for example.

Take a hand full of, for example, strawberries or blackberries, a banana in pieces and a large tablespoon of honey. Mix this with the hand blender and stir in yogurt. Amounts a bit on feeling, just how much you want to make.
Benefits of drinking a glass of water on an empty stomach? Of course drink, there are so many variations possible. Leave a jug in the fridge for a few hours with water and possibly a small pinch of salt. Fill the jug with for example:
- Slices of freshly sour apple
- Mango kernels where the flesh is still attached to
- Slices of cucumber (or scrape long strings with a carrot scraper)
- Pulped fruits such as berries, blackberries, grapes etc.
- Cut a peach into pieces
- etc. etc.
If you do not find it sweet enough, you can stir a little honey through the water. (warm the honey a bit before adding it)
He smells so good !! But did you know that the plant can also give a delicious taste to your water? Leave a twig in a jug with cold water for a few hours. Do not discard the twig after wards. Put it in a glass with a layer of water and you have a big chance that carrots appear on it = another new plant!
These contain, among other things, a great deal of vitamin C. In the past, rose hips were mainly used to strengthen the vitality in people who needed it. Rose hip was also recommended for flu, colds and poor resistance.
Cut open a few Rose hip hips, remove the seeds and let the pieces soak in water for a few hours in a jug. (The seeds are usually removed because they taste very bitter.)
You can also make tea from the rose hips or make a lemonade.
Occasionally you will still encounter a few rose petals. Have you ever done that in your water? So good!!!
- Blackberries, cucumber and red berries with a few sprigs of lemon balm and a slice of lemon. Crush the fruit for a moment before putting it in a bottle of water. Let it stand for about 2 to 4 hours before you drink it, occasionally shaking it. You can keep it for a day longer, but then you better put everything out seven again because otherwise it can taste bitter
A handful of mashed strawberries and raspberries with lime pieces (with peel). Fill with with water. Leave a few hours in the fridge. Seven for use.
Make your own sports drink: Put a small pinch of Himalayan salt or Celtic Sea salt in your bottle with water, possibly with a squeezed orange. These natural salts are unprocessed and even contain up to 84 minerals! Salt is refined salt and contains only 2 minerals: Sodium chloride. Incidentally, this processed salt is unfortunately in almost every product from the supermarket; cake, chips, soup, etc. etc. If you make your own food you can choose to use healthy salt.
Take 30 grams of hazelnuts and 300 grams of water. Let this soak overnight. Strain the hazelnuts out of the water, dispose of the soaking water and add 300 grams of water again *. Grind it in the blender with a pinch of salt and strain it. (The pulp can be processed in another recipe or put it in the yogurt or some people do not strain it and just drink it.)
If you want, you can make it sweeter by mixing a few dates or a banana after sieving.
If you buy hazelnut milk ( 2.09) you get less hazelnuts, lots of sugar and other ingredients: (Water, sugar, hazelnuts (2.5%), tricalcium phosphate, sea salt, stabilizers (locust bean gum, gellan gum), emulsifier (sunflower lecithin) ), vitamins (riboflavin (B2), B12, E, D2).
I always wonder where they get those loose vitamins from. Vita means "life", so vitamins - in the past - the living substances in plants. I think they put the synthetic counterfeit version in the suit. I do not know what they make of it, it never stands ...
* The disposal of the soaking water is recommended because it is said that the hazelnuts are better absorbed by the body.
- Soak the white flicker screens for a few hours in water and strain them out.
- Water from the white Butterfly screens with a squeezed grapefruit
- Elderberry lemonade: Flour screens with a few squeezed lemons soaked in water for 24 hours. Seven and roads. You add 50% of the weight of unrefined sugar and stir it to the boil. Let it boil for about a quarter of an hour. Take bottles that can be heated (eg from coffee milk). Well cook out. Fill the bottles with boiling hot juice, turn the cap on and put them upside down for 5 minutes.
The berries will appear at the end of August. When the berries are ripe you can pick them to make juice, lemonade or jam. Elderberries should not be consumed raw. Heat the berries gently with a little water and put a lid on a pan. The berries will crack. When all the berries are broken, you can strain the seeds out.
More information about the elder can be found here.
Cut an orange through half. Press one half and squeeze out the other half and cut into pieces (with peel). You do everything in a jug with water with a pinch of salt * and possibly a sprig of lemon balm and ice cubes. Leave it in the refrigerator for several hours. Seven for use.
I do not like very sweet and I liked the taste. My son wanted him to be sweeter. That is why I have dissolved a tablespoon of honey in hot water and stirred through it and let it go into the fridge for a while. Now it has the taste of orange but not so sweet. You can also do more pressed oranges through it.
* do not use table salt, but of course salt, for example Himalayan salt. With kitchen salt all natural minerals that our body needs are removed.
Cook the cut and cleaned strawberries and rhubarb gently until sauce. Seven through a cloth. (The pulp can still be used in a smoothie.) You can stir a little honey through the juice to make it sweeter (let it cool to less than 60 degrees, otherwise the good substances of the honey will be lost).
If you stir unrefined sugar through it (50% of the weight) and the juice of 2 lemons and you let this boil down for a while, then you have homemade lemonade.
Rhubarb with Strawberry juice
The "secret" is that you do not have to make the tea with boiling water. The water should cool down to a maximum of 80 degrees before you make the tea. I made this iced tea with the green tea with Lemongrass from Simon Level. (I think their quality is very good, because tea tastes as it should taste.) Use about a liter of water of max 80 degrees and stir in a large teaspoon with Lemongrass green tea and the juice of half a lemon or lime. Allow to cool. When I cooled down I added another ripe peach into pieces because I did not want to sweeten it. Then put in the refrigerator until use. I found this iced tea delicious without sweeteners, but you can always stir some honey or sugar through it. Honey loses its good properties when it is heated above 60 degrees.
