Homemade Flavored Water

I made fun about Sassy water for weight loss, because it is obvious that water will not eliminate 3 kg in four days, or 10 cm in waist. Actually it is just about water. When me and my hubby started living together, we started drinking a lot of juices, coke etc. After a while, my stomach became really big and I panicked, because I saw fat lady in the mirror, but actually, it was just a coke in my stomach. When I stopped drinking juices and coke, my stomach became flat again thanks to water. Or thanks to me and training, because I used to had flat stomach before I started drinking coke and juices, so when I throw out these things from my organism, it became normal again.

However, this does not mean that water (or flavored water) is bad just because you wont look like Beyonce after you drink it (but you can look even better if you want to), it just means that you have to train your ass and eat/drink/live healthy. Idea of Sassy water is great, healthy and delicious, especially for those who are addicted to juices and who generally don’t drink much water. There is a lot of people who want to kill thirst with juice, but all these drinks are dissolved sugar (even the juices you make at home from fresh fruit), so it does not work. Especially in summer, you have to have Plan B. I also like juices, I’m addicted to coke, energy drinks … but I also like to have flat stomach and to not pass out when I go out on the street on +40° … So, I make my own flavored water. Not a big deal, believe me. I think everyone has their own unique recipe and ingredients.

The method for making you own water is very easy: choose your favorite ingredients, put them in larger or smaller pieces in the bottle with water and leave overnight. The very next day you can throw out the fruit (or whatever you choose) and drink the water. All you have to do is to experiment and find your favorite flavor. My favorite flavor is made of raspberries and nectarines. A little bit weird, but tasty as hell. Also, don’t miss the orange, blackberry, lemon, vanilla, flowers … Try everything (don’t try with bananas, it won’t work – been there, done that).

Let me know which flavor is your favorite and if you have hack for banana water. Love y’all.


Smijala sam se Sassy vodici za mršanje, jer je previše očigledno da voda neće skinut 3 kile za 4 dana ili 10 cenata u struku. Zapravo, tajna je samo u vodi. Kad smo ja i moj dragi počeli živjeti zajedno, počeli smo i da pijemo mnogo sokova, gaziranih, negaziranih, energetskih pića … sve što je ukusno i probavljivo se našlo kod nas u kuhinju (eventualno razbacano po stanu, no kužite). Sve što je lijepo kratko traje, pa tako i naše kušanje svega ukusnog. Nakon nekog vremena sam izvalila da mi je stomak postao bojler i da se više ne može tako živjeti. Toliko sam se prepala da sam se zamalo bacila na trening. Zajebavam se, odradila sam jedan dan treninga, a uz trening ne ide kola, pa je nije ni bilo. Nakon što sam je (za 24 sata ili manje) izbacila iz organizma, imala sam šta vidjeti. Debelu ženu je ponovno zamijenila tanana djevojka. No, to je tako samo zato što sam i prije kole imala ravan stomak, pa kad sam to sve izbacila, vratila sam svoj old luk. Dakle, ne može trening bez prehrane i prehrana bez treninga (to me je muž naučio, i iako njemu kolutam očima, fakat je u pravu).

No, vratimo se na Sassy vodu … činjenica da nećete od nje postati Beyonce, sama ideja vode nije loša (a uz malo truda možete i prešišati Beyonce, samo treba mrdnut dupetom i jesti/piti/živjeti zdravo). Elem, ideja vode sa ukusom je super, zdrava i ukusna, posebno za ovisnike o sokovima i one koji ne piju puno vode (jer piju puno sokova, energetskih napitaka i kafe). Dosta nas hoće ubiti žeđ sokovima, no sva ta pića su rastvoreni šećer (čak i sokovi koje pravite kući od svježeg voća .. BOOM!), tak’ da nema neke koristi od toga, a posebno ljeti treba imati plan B. I ja sam ovisnik i obožavam energetska pića i sokove – sve vrste osim odvratne fante sa grožđem – ali isto tako volim i ravan stomak i volim kad se ne šlagiram na sred ulice na +40 stepeni. Dakle, tu smo: kod kućnih radinosti nuklearne šljokice – vode sa okusom. Nije nikakav strašan ‘projekat’, jer da jeste, ja vam ne bih pisala o njemu. I jednostavan je iz razloga što svako ima jedinstven recept i sastojke.

Metoda izrade je jednostavna: kupiš omiljeno voće, nasjeckaš na veće ili manje komade i ubaciš u bocu sa vodom, ostaviš preko noći, ujutro ocjediš, popiješ. I ponavljaš. Možete eksperimentirati i naći svoj omiljeni ukus. Moj omiljeni je kombinacija malina i nektarine (vjerovali ili ne, ukusno je). Imate tu još naranče, kupine, limun, cvijeće, vaniliju … sve probajte, osim banana – been there done that, ne radi.

Javite mi svoj omiljeni okus i ako neko ima čit za vodu sa ukusom banane (plaćam u zlatu).
