When life gives you apples

Oh Brad is right.....summer is here and suddenly its a HOT one in Halifax. With all this blazing sun shinning down upon us, let me help you cool off. Here are some refreshing ways to jazz up your everyday drinking water.

We all know we need H2O to keep us balanced and properly hydrated. But....drinking the same old same old can get a little lack-luster in the dog days of summer.

why not slice up some apple or freeze blueberries in your ice cubes, why not cut half your water with green tea and throw some frozen strawberries in there to hang out. Cucumber and basil are fantastic paired together. Oddly enough basil and mango are a unique and sensory treat for both your nose and mouth. Mint and watermelon is another great and unexpected pair.

Do feels soo good going down.

What you will need:

  • fresh or fav fruit of choice
  • frozen fruit in that freezer
  • basil or mint
  • ice cube tray
  • pitcher, water bottle, glass
  • green tea (fav herbal tea or choice)


Thinly slice apples, kiwi, mango, strawberries, melon or cucumber. Tear up basil or mint.

fill a pitcher or beverage container with ice or go a la cart and let whatever you are infusing 'chill' for at least an hour in filtered water or tap popped in the fridge.

Don't pair to many things together, stick with two things hanging out together and see how they jive, see what your preferences are and then go with it.


Want to know how to make friends with construction workers on a blazing hot day? Tell them you made a seemingly unlimited supply of blueberry green ice tea. I told them it was sweetened with agave and was all natural-but all they seemed to care about was that it was cold. 

Love, Nicole
