This is my daily “go-to” drink. Sometimes I need something more to drink than just water. I am not a fan of sweet beverages, so this is a nice alternative to a bit of flavour, while still getting great nutritional value! I usually make one big pitcher and then pour a glass as I go throughout the day or fill up my water bottle. I find the contents in the pitcher last 2-3 days before needing a refresh.
