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
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!

every night, I have this ritual where I scroll through the photos taken from the day on my phone and pick a favorite, posting it up on my stories with the hashtag #favoritepicoftheday. it’s a fun, sometimes therapeutic way to end and reflect on the day. as I was going through it tonight, the TV was on and I heard the news. ruth bader ginsburg passed away tonight. immediately, I felt sadness and a bit of worry. a worry of the implications politically of her passing. there’s so much at stake in this upcoming election and you all know I don’t get political on here very often, but seeing roma’s little smiley, silly face made me realize that if I’m not being a good role model and using this platform to make the world a better place for her, what kind of mother am I? so VOTE, VOTE, VOTE. 🇺🇸 and as the late RBG said, “real change, enduring change, happens one step at a time.” here’s my step. 💕 #rbg #ruthbaderginsburg ...
