For me, drinking plenty of water is an essential part of my healthy-living routine. Just as I exercise daily and watch what I eat, ensuring that I get at least 64-ounces of water a day can make a big difference in the way that I look and feel. As silly as it may sound, when I don’t get enough water, I can almost instantly tell. I feel sluggish. My skin loses some of it’s glow. I’m hungry all the time. Now I know, it’s kinda mind-blowing to think that all those symptoms can be linked to not drinking enough water but for me, it’s a reality…so much so that I’ve given up many of the non-water beverages I was consuming during the day and replaced them all with refreshing Nestlé® Pure Life®. With the ability to take it with me where ever I go, it’s a perfect drink for the coming warm summer days. But I’ll admit, plain water sometimes needs a little makeover and a refreshing twist! That’s why I’ve recently started turning my Nestlé Pure Life water into Watermelon Basil Spa Water complete with flavored ice cubes! Even better, I’ve found a way to turn my beloved spa water into Ice Pops as well, ensuring that each and every day, I not only get all the water I need but enjoy the delicious taste of it along the way!
Now, before I get to my Watermelon Basil Spa Water that is seriously the perfect summer beverage, let’s talk a little more about water. For me, water is an essential part of so many areas of my life. Since switching up my routine and adding more water to my life a little over a year ago, I’ve seen a big difference. On the days that I drink all of my water, I feel better. I’m refreshed, energized and I stay on track. On those days that I think I can substitute sometime else out for my water (or that I get crazy busy and forget to drink), I don’t feel as good. With the warm summer months quickly approaching, I know I’m going to need to up my water intake even more to keep myself feeling great and fueled for all our summer fun. In anticipation of this, I recently headed to Walmart to pick up my trusted brand of Nestlé Pure Life water.
My family has been drinking Nestlé Pure Life for years and we always have our home stocked with it. So I was seriously thrilled to see that by shopping in-store at Walmart, I’m able to get a great value with three more bottles in the package for the same price as the 32 pack! While I know I can purchase my Nestlé Pure Life at Walmart online, in-store is the only place to get this great deal of a Nestlé Pure Life 35 pack! (Helpful Tip: If this version of Nestle Pure Life is not available in your local Walmart, please ask a store manager about getting the product in your area.). With it’s great-taste that is perfected through the 12-step quality process which enhances the water with a unique blend of minerals, Nestlé Pure Life water is the perfect choice for all my hydration needs! Knowing that Nestlé Pure Life water tastes amazing straight out of the bottle, I decided to give it a little makeover and use it to create Watermelon Basil Spa Water. But, instead of just infusing my Nestlé Pure Life water with the amazingly flavorful combination of watermelon and basil, I figured I’d take things a step further and infuse my ice cubes as well!
What You Will Need
1 Small Watermelon
1/4 Cup of Basil
Nestlé Pure Life Water
Ice Cube Trays
How to Make It
I’ll admit that this Watermelon Basil Spa Water with infused ice cubes takes a little time to make but it’s totally worth it and the perfect way to up your hydration game! Even better, the ice cubes can be made it batches and stored in the freezer to make this an easy daily treat! To start, I diced up half of my watermelon and half of my basil.
Next, I filled my ice cube trays with my pieces of watermelon and basil.
Once I had the watermelon and basil in my ice cube trays, I poured in my Nestlé Pure Life water until the trays were full.
After simply popping my Watermelon Basil infused ice cubes in the freezer, I allowed them to sit for about four hours until they were completely hardened. Then I popped them out of the trays and pulled out some to use in my Watermelon Basil Spa Water and stored the rest in an air tight container so they are ready any time I want to create this easy and delicious way to hydrate.
Once my ice cubes were ready, I pulled out a large pitcher. After cutting the remaining half of my watermelon into large chunks, I added them and the remainder of my whole basil leaves to the container.
Next, my Watermelon Basil ice cubes went in as well.
Finally, I filled up my container with Nestlé Pure Life water and stirred it all together.
After allowing it to sit for about thirty minutes so that all the flavors really had time to combine well, I was ready to enjoy my delicious Watermelon Basil Spa Water!
After pouring my first glass of Watermelon Basil Spa Water, I left my container sitting on the counter for the remainder of the day so that I could continue to refill my cup and enjoy the delicious flavors of this amazing water.
As the flavor infused ice cubes melted, my water stayed cold and the taste just got more amazing, ensuring that drinking my water all day long was a flavorful experience that I just couldn’t get enough of!
This Watermelon Basil Infused Spa Water is a perfect beverage to enjoy all day long and with the delicious flavors combined with Nestlé Pure Life water, it’s the perfect way to stay hydrated each and every day!
Now, I could end my hydration story there but recently I discovered that when all of my Watermelon Basil Spa Water isn’t gone at the end of the day, I just can’t stand to part with it. So, instead of throwing it out so I can start fresh the next day, I’ve discovered that the perfect way to make more of my leftover Spa Water is by turning it into Watermelon Basil Ice Pops!
To make this delicious summer treat that helps me meet my hydration goals, all I have to do is take what’s left over of my Watermelon Basil Spa Water and fill ice pop molds with it.
After a few short hours in the freezer (4-6 to be exact), I’m able to enjoy my Watermelon Basil Ice Pops! They are a great way to cool down, mix it up and still ensure that I’m meeting my daily water goals in a unique and flavorful way!
