Healthy Water Drinks for Your Body

 

 

 I found this recipes on Facebook and as soon as I sent it to my family, my daughter in law Kristen send me an email that she had already made it. My 3 little grand daughters had already drank 2 pitchers of it. Sounds like it is a winner for hot summer months. Let me know if you make it and which one is your favorite.
