Nalgene Lemon Refresher

READY IN: 2mins
Recipe by SarahBeth

DH and I are doing weight watchers and must drink a certain amount of water a day. We try to get about 80 ounces in and both have Nalgene bottles we use to measure how much we have had and sometimes we get sick of water and the crystal light thing was too sweet after awhile so we came up with this. Try it with lime too, or orange, just use less sweetener in the orange one! :) Enjoy!

Refreshing. Lovely. Thirst-quenching. Perfect. I used lime - and it was outstanding! I didn't have a bottle, but I had a glass, and I refilled x 2 times. YUM!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Microwave the lemon for 15 seconds, take out and roll on the counter pushing down with a medium amount of pressure, microwave for an additional 20 seconds.
  2. Slice lemon in half and sqeeze as much juice as you want into the bottom of your Nalgene bottle. We like the juice of a whole lemon in each 32 ounces but you might like more or less.
  3. Open and empty the sweet-n-low into the bottom of the Nalgene.
  4. Fill to the top with ice.
  5. Pour water over top and close Nalgene, shake for about 20 seconds to combine.
  6. Enjoy! :).
