Hey there! This post is going to be super short and sweet. I have been welcoming Spring and beckoning Summer this week by making infused water at home! If you do or would like to do the same, here’s a little inspiration for you!
Why Infused Water?
-For people like me who can’t stand plain water, it’s a great way to trick your body into staying hydrated.
-It tastes delicious but has super low calories!
-It boosts your metabolism and helps flush out toxins.
-It’s so pretty!
Remember that the longer you let it sit, the more flavor there will be, but if you let it sit more than a couple days it may start tasting a little different… Pay attention to the fruit and herbs you put in the water. When the leaves start getting brown they are changing the taste they give to the water. When the berries start getting swollen they are doing the same. After a couple days I usually strain the fruit and herbs out of the water and just save the water itself , but for no more than another couple days.
There are endless combinations out there for infusing your water including fruit and herbs, but here are a few of my favorites:
1. Raspberry Lemon
2. Blueberry Lime
3. Pineapple Mint
4. Orange Rosemary
Here are some other fruit-filled recipes to get you ready for the season!
