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:

cauliflower and carrot masala, totally normal meal on thanksgiving eve, right? 😅🥄

tomorrow we’re going to my BIL’s to hang out with Lu’s side of the family, and I’m excited to see everyone (it’s been YEARS!) and have the kids spend time with their cousins, aunts and uncles 🙏🏼

for the curry, simmer cauliflower, carrots, a jar of @mayakaimalfoods, and 2 cups of @bonafideprovisions veggie broth in a large pot for 20 minutes or until thickened to your preference. add cooked lentils, stir, and serve with jasmine rice, chutney and toasted naan. easy 30 minute meal 👏🏼 not exactly thanksgiving-friendly, but worth a share!

safe travels today and tomorrow and wishing everyone a safe and happy thanksgiving 🦃 I’m so grateful for you

rio and sol are 10 weeks old today! 👶🏻👶🏻 10 weeks! 2.5 months! let's chat.⁣ 🙏🏼

rio is much like luca. he loves to be held and needs more touch or movement to fall back asleep. he loves to stare at things in a serious way, especially high-contrast art for babies, so I love reading him books while I hold him (he's the best snuggler.)⁣

sol is my chill boy. he's a good sleeper. he smiles and loves to talk. he's squealing and making his goo-goo-ga-ga sounds all the time, I love chatting with him. he's a bit more like roma as a baby, a bit more independent. he makes the funniest faces and serves up the grimaces like luca used to.⁣

what's funny about twins is that just when you think you know their personality differences, they change - they'll swap. 🤷🏻‍♀️ and to tell them physically apart, there are two key differences:⁣
⏺ rio has a wider head and sol has a more narrow, round forehead⁣
⏺ rio weighs a full pound more than sol⁣

and yes, I have mixed them up a few times! I've been carrying one around, talking to them by name, and then all of a sudden, when I go to pick the other one up, I realize I mixed them up! 😱when they're not together or you're not looking at them straight on, it can be confusing! one of my favorite games is texting my family photos of them and saying, "who's who?!" they get it right 50% of the time, ha!⁣

so far, having twins is just so cool. it's so cool that there are two of them and they are identical! every week that goes by, their personalities shine and I am having so much fun getting to know them - and getting twice the cuddles. and yes, they do sometimes cry at the same exact time, but you just have to pause, gather yourself, and get your soothing game on.⁣ 💪🏼

I have to say, while having newborn twins and 2 other older kids at the same time has its challenges, I give a LOT of credit to those who have twins as their first baby experience - I can't imagine going into this not knowing what I already knew about raising babies. talk about overwhelming! 🤯 all moms are crushing it, but especially those first time moms with multiples - woop! bless you. 👏🏼 #identicaltwinboys #identicaltwins #monoditwins #twinmom #twinboys
