Spiralized Cucumber Spa Water with Mint and Lemon

Early last week, I was really in the mood for something super refreshing. I had already had my kobucha for the day, drank tons of water, and I was just craving something crisp.

I wanted lemon water with a little something extra. Then it came to me: spa water!

It was late in the day and I did something utterly blasphemous to the Inspiralized doctrine: I grabbed a cucumber out fo the fridge and…. a knife, to slice the cucumbers.

Can you believe it?! As I went to slice the ends off of the cucumber, it struck me – “Ali, who has time to slice that cucumber? Spiralize it!”

Like a lightbulb, I grabbed some fresh mint I had leftover from another recipe, a lemon and of course, the Inspiralizer.

Within a few seconds, I had gorgeous, fluffy, spiral-y cucumbers. I placed them into a pitcher we got for our wedding, and added in some sliced lemons and the mint.

This water was EXACTLY what I was looking for and it quenched that urge for something crisp, refreshing, and, for lack of a better word, not boring (lemon water gets old after awhile.)

Talk about food as art, right? The cucumbers look beautiful in the pitcher with a pop of color from the lemons and texture from the mint.

I can’t wait to serve this up the next time I have friends over – it’s a fancy way to serve water, especially during the summertime when cucumbers are in abundance!

If you’ve ever had spa water, you’ll love this Inspiralized spa water!

I find drop of peppermint essential oil is so much more flavorful than mint leaves
Ali Maffucci says:
That sounds lovely!
Tim says:
Essential oils are not edible! Do not do this! It is very harmful to your organs. (They can sometimes be OK if diluted in fat, but water will not dilute essential oil as oil and water do not mix.)
Suzy says:
I just made it....but I spiralized the lemon too!
june says:
Hi, This looks lovely. would it keep for a few days in the fridge?
Anonymous says:
Yes it will keep in thw fridge for several days. Just keep in mind the longer it steeps the stronger the flavor.
Vivian says:
So many flavors of mint...so little time! Love to experiment...but anything that encourages the drinking of water is a good thing! Your take on it makes it sexy!
JENNIFFER P. says:
You should try watermelon, lime and mint. It taste wonderful too!

THREE BEST WAYS TO COOK ZUCCHINI NOODLES 🍝 ⁣

we're a month into summer and the zucchinis are LARGE. 👏🏼 they grow like weeds this time of year and there's only so much zucchini bread, soup, and fritters you can make - time to spiralize them! if you're new to spiralizing and not sure the best way to approach cooking spiralized zucchini, here are my top 3 ways to cook zoodles 👇🏼👇🏼👇🏼⁣

1️⃣ SAUTÉ -  this is my favorite way to enjoy zoodles. toss them over medium-high heat until al dente (with or without cooking oil.) the moment you notice them getting soggy, remove them from heat, drain into a colander, and pat dry. I recommend pouring a sauce on top instead of tossing with a sauce, to avoid extra wateriness. I LOVE a bolognese over zoodles.⁣

2️⃣ SIMMER - zucchini noodles don't get soggy in soups, they cook evenly and they are an easy way to add veggies into soups. just add them to the end of the cooking process (3 minutes is all you need to simmer until al dente.) think chicken "zoodle" soups and "zoodle" ramens! ⁣

3️⃣ RAW - you can eat zucchini raw! in the summertime, there's nothing better than a cold zoodle salad, and I love simple pesto zucchini noodles or you can try an Asian-inspired Thai dressing like a peanut sauce.⁣

do these veggies make my belly look big? 😛🤰🏻 🧅🥒🍅 be honest! #29weekspregnantwithtwins #monoditwins #twinpregnancy #pregnantwithtwins #29weekspregnant ...

I'll admit, it's been a minute since I posted a spiralized zucchini meal on here, so I'm throwing it back (and bringing it back!) with this MEDITERRANEAN CHICKEN with SPIRALIZED VEGETABLES 🍅, originally made for the blog by my friend @skinnytaste! 🙏🏼⁣

I love the simplicity of this zoodle dish, it's one of those "what the heck am I going to make for dinner tonight?!" 🤔 kind of meals. you can bulk this up with some grains or some grilled potatoes, too!⁣

search the blog for the recipe! 🖥️⁣
