Zain’s Signature Vitamin Water Five Flavours – Winter Collection

Find yourself needing a vitamin boost?

If you fell in love with my original line of signature Alkaline Vitamin Waters, you are going to LOVE the all new Winter Collection.  One sip will nourish your insides.

On these dark, dreary days, it is even more important to get your vitamins in.

Below are the recipes and directions of my five signature colour-free, sugar-free and bpa plastic free alkaline vitamin waters.  Enjoy these combinations or get inspired to make your own!!

It simple, cheap and easy way to get your vitamins in a delicious and hydrating way.

*Note, these combinations still have major healing benefits even if you do not have the powdered forms of vitamins as the fruit, vegetable and herb ingredients alone have incredible healing power.  These combinations have a few more exotic vitamins and healing herbs than my original collection but many of them should be easy to find.  If you have any trouble locating the herbs, just make the waters with as many of the ingredients as you have available.

**You may opt to add in a sweetener of your choice, I do not add sweeteners to mine; however, if you wish to, I recommend Manuka 25+ honey OR 3-5 muddled dates OR 1 Tbsp Sweet Life Stevia Sweetener
