Summer = Pitta season.
Pitta is our fire element (with a tad bit of water) and when the heat rolls around it's important for us to do things to stay hydrated and cool - so we won't burn up! Summer also means tons of delicious fruit in the markets!!
Here are some of my favorite fruit-infused water combinations:
· Strawberries, lemon & basil
· Watermelon & spearmint
· Raspberries & spearmint
· Lemon, lime, orange & cucumber
· Blueberries & mandarin (or any orange)
Directions: Add desired fruits to a pitcher and then fill it with water! Allow the fruits to soak for anywhere from 2 hours to overnight, depending on the fruit combo you've selected. Add as much or as little as you'd like.
