Infusing water with fruit and vegetables is all the rage, and for good reason! Many fruits, citrus especially, have slimming effects, especially when paired with our favorite, apple cider vinegar. You might be thinking that such a combination would be too tart, but we beg to differ! Add a little stevia and you are well on your way to a VERY low-calorie, slimming drink that's sure to take away your urge for one of those fizzy, sugar-laden soft drinks!
Our newest recipe, Cucumber-Lime Skinny Water, is a great drink for helping with occasional bloat or a little fatigue. While the water won't replace working out or eating healthy, if you drink it, you will definitely notice that your body is ridding itself of excess water - fast!

1/2 c lime juice, freshly squeezed (chop limes and keep to infuse in water)

1 TBSP apple cider vinegar
1 tsp liquid stevia
