What is Sassy Water?
- 7 Months ago
Drinking plain water all the time is just like eating dal, chawal, roti, sabzi everyday. It is in no doubt healthy for your body, but you can make the task of hydrating yourself more interesting by sprucing it up with the flavor of various healthy ingredients. Sassy water is nothing but spruced up water named by Prevention magazine to pay tribute to its creator Cynthia Sass, who designed it for the "Flat Belly Diet". Apart from the benefit of having no calories it is a great drink to sip throughout the day since it aids weight loss apart from the ingredients which provide various other health benefits.
The recipe of sassy water includes ingredients such as ginger, cucumber, lemon, and mint. The ginger and mint acts as a boon for our digestive system and helps in treating nausea, gas, and diarrhea. The addition of lemon and cucumber makes it a good source of vitamin C and potassium.
Preparing Sassy water at home is a breeze and anybody from your family can do it. Here's the recipe for Cynthia Sass' sassy water:
2 liters or 8 ½ cups of fresh water (use good-quality potable water)
1 teaspoon fresh ginger, grated
1 medium cucumber, peeled and sliced thinly
1 medium lemon, sliced thinly
12 fresh mint leaves
Combine all the ingredients in a jug/pitcher. Cover it and refrigerate overnight so that all the flavors get infused. Enjoy it through the day.
