Drinking as much water as you need to can sometimes be dificult and frustrating. Fruit Infused Water is an excellent way to not only make your water taste better, but to encourage you to drink more. We really love fruit around here, and adding it to water actually has some really good health benefits too.
Fruit Infused Water can actually boost your immunity, and help detox your body from toxins. It’s highly nutritious, and there are some awesome flavor combinations! Making it is super simple, and takes just a little bit of prep to have enough for the whole month! We also have our favorite ten recipe combinations as well!
To make Fruit Infused Water, you need to add your fruit, herbs, and vegetables to each jar, then add a few ice cubes, then put the lid on and place them in the fridge. You can store it for up to 3-4 days in the fridge before drinking, for best results. Obviously, the longer it’s in the fridge, the stronger the flavor will be. It’s best to stick them in the fridge and leave them there for 4-6 hours, or ideally, overnight for the best flavor results and infusion.
We bought and used the following fruits: strawberries, blueberries, lemons, limes, oranges, cherries, and red raspberries. We bought and used the following vegetables: cucumbers. We bought and used the following herbs and spices: fresh grated ginger, fresh basil, fresh mint. Keep in mind, if you use grated ginger, you will suck it through your straw.
Each fruit and vegetable needs to be sliced, or wedged in order for it to infuse the water properly. For the cherries. you will need to remove their pits as well. When using fresh herbs, we tore our leaves in half before putting them in the jar to release more flavor.
