A few weeks ago Padma Lakshmi was on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. Padma is one of my favourite TV personalities and her segment on the show was a lot of fun. She cooked a lentil salad from her cookbook, Tangy Tart Hot & Sweet, and made something called "Fairy Water".
I was eager to try making my own Fairy Water because I've been trying to consume green tea daily, but I don't particularly enjoy the taste of it. Here is my own version (which was really nice) if you want to give it a try.
Start with a pitcher of fresh water. I used about 3 cups.
Pour in steeped green tea. I used about 3 cups of organic green tea.
Add your flavourings. I used a quarter of an apple cut into thin slices and two cinnamon sticks. Top off with extra water.
I opted to make a big batch and it kept well in my fridge for a few days. If you want to, you can adjust the quantities to make a smaller (or bigger) batch.
You can also feel free to play with the flavouring!
Cucumbers would give you a spa-like drink, while adding citrus would make this more summery. Get creative!
P.S. I can't tell you how many people have stolen my photographs from this post and used it on their diet websites. This is just flavoured water (and these photos are protected by copyright. so pleases don't use them without permission).
