Food Friday Featuring: Quick, Easy & Refreshing Flavoured Water

Today’s Friday Food Feature comes courtesy of Jamie Oliver and although it technically isn’t “Food”, a thirst quenching drink is just what we need in these hot, muggy days of Summer! For preparation ideas, recipes and more delicious and nutritious meal ideas please be sure to visit Jamie Oliver’s website.

It only takes a second to turn a plain jug of water into something much more exciting. Chuck in a few handfuls of ice then try any one of these simple things:

• Add a few slices of fresh lemon or lime.
• Quarter an orange, squeeze in all of the juice, then toss in the squeezed quarters for color and extra flavor.
• Mash up a handful of strawberries or raspberries with a fork then add to the jug and stir through.
• Scrunch a handful of fresh mint in your hands to get the flavor going then add that to the jug with a squeeze of lemon or lime juice. If you’re feeling a bit adventurous, add a few slices of cucumber too. It might sound strange, but it is seriously refreshing.
