H2O is the absolute best thing for you to drink during class or a performance. Sports drinks contain too much sugar and energy drinks are pumping you full of caffeine and a laundry list of ingredients that you can’t begin to pronounce. But sometimes you are craving something more than water to quench that post plié thirst.
Try mixing it up with cucumber water. In the less-than-5-minutes it takes to prepare, you’ll be feeding your body vitamin K for bone strength, Vitamins A and C for fighting germs, and you’ll be getting a healthy boost of potassium and electrolytes as well!
Prep Time: 5 min Yields: 2 Servings
- One large cucumber-peeled
- 3 cups water
- Slice cucumber in half and scoop out seeds with a spoon, then cut into chunks.
- Put cucumber chunks and water into blender, puree and serve.
Variation: Add a handful of mint leaves when blending for a crisp, cool taste.
