We all know that we’re supposed to drink lots of water, especially when it’s hot out or when we’re exercising. But sometimes water is, well, a little boring. If you have trouble getting in your 8 (minimum!) glasses of water a day, try out some of these infused waters. In addition to making your water a little more interesting, they have added nutrients from the non-H2O ingredients.
Infused Water – The Basics
No matter what recipe you choose, the basic recipe is the same. Cut up your fruit or vegetables into bite-size chunks (or citrus into slices), add cold water, and refrigerate! If you’re using lime, make sure you remove it after 3 hours; otherwise your water will take on the bitter taste of the rind. Otherwise, you can leave the fruit in up to 12 hours.
Our Favorite Infused Water Recipes
These are just a few of our favorite infused waters to get you started, but feel free to experiment with your own combinations!
Cucumber water alone is extremely refreshing, but pairing it up with strawberries gives it a unique hint of sweetness that we can’t get enough of. As a bonus, raw cucumbers boost bone health, fight cancer and aging, and reduce blood pressure, while strawberries support cardiovascular health.
Lime and mint together create the perfect refreshing drink for summer. In addition, the combination can help improve digestion, relieve headaches, clear congestion and freshen breath.
We love this combination for a sweet, tangy take on water intake. The two fruits together add Vitamin C to your drink, which can help boost your immune system. The combo also aids digestion and can help regulate blood sugar.
