*Make your own Fruit flavored water*

Thanks Macaroni Kid this great and simple recipe!

As you'll see, the recipe is only fruit, water, and sugar, so it is as simple as can be!  Experiment with the 'leftover' fruit in your house.  I have made versions of this drink several times since she has told me about it, and it has been refreshing and delicious each time.  I love that it is nutritious and a fresh change from pouring something from a store bought container.  You can mimic the below recipe with almost any fruit.  Enjoy!
1/2 watermelon seeded and diced
3/4 cup sugar
6 cups water
You can take the watermelon down much closer to the rind than you usually may.  Add watermelon, water, and sugar to blender.   Blend down to water consistency, and serve in ice filled glass.  Delicious!
If you put it in a sippy cup or similar for your kids, remember that there are no preservatives, so don’t keep it out too long without refrigeration!
