Nutrition: Citrus Water - A Healthier Hydration Alternative

Dick Moss, Editor, Physical Education Update.com

Water is great for post-workout hydration, but some students find it boring. Here's a way to make water more appealing by improving its flavour… using nothing but fruit.

Citrus water is also a healthier, lower calorie alternative to soda pop.

What You Need

  • 16 cups water
  • 2 large lemons, sliced
  • 1 large orange sliced

What You Do

  1. In a large pitcher, add water and fruit and chill for 1-2 hours.
  2. After two hours, strain out fruit, pour water into a large glass, and serve.
