It's no secret that vitamin-enhanced waters are loaded with calories, sugar and chemicals - which provides a short energy burst that only makes you crash later. Make a real energy drink at home for a fraction of the price. The fruit, herbs and veggies deliver a refreshing mix of vitamins and antioxidants that are proven to give you vital fuel. This recipe is from Chatelaine magazine and it's tasty! Please note that you are supposed to refrigerate it overnight. Enjoy!

This is a really great and refreshing flavored water! Not at all sweet (a good thing) although the fresh mint does provide a nice pleasant balance to the lemon and cucumber. Great after-workout or hot weather drink - thanks for sharing the recipe!
- 10 cups water
- 1⁄2 cucumber, thinly sliced
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1⁄4 cup fresh basil leaf, shredded
- 1⁄3 cup fresh mint leaves, shredded
