Infused Water is a simple way to keep your health in balance. While it’s common knowledge that drinking water is extremely beneficial, some don’t feel like always chugging it all day. Why would you when there are things like sodas and juices that have real flavors to them? Well, infused water help bridge the gap between a healthy drink and one that tastes good. Here are a few recipes to get you started:
Mint and strawberry are a crisp and refreshing combo. Let the strawberries and mint steep in a glass of ice water and behold, you have a great beverage that is especially delicious in the hot summer months.
Citrus and blueberries are fantastic together. Partner these two up if you like different notes of tangy and sweet.
Water that tastes like a pie? Count me in. This recipe combines ginger, pear, vanilla, and cinnamon for a flavorful yet still healthy kick. You can also substitute the pear for apple if that’s more your style.
A classic Middle Eastern duo for your pleasure. Cardamom adds a bit of spice while the rose creates a lovely floral taste. If you’ve never tried floral-scented foods or drinks, now’s the time to start. It’s crisp and light and a natural antioxidant!
Here is a good alternative to lemonade that doesn’t include any added sugar whatsoever. Again, the mixture of mint with the citrus is refreshing, dazzling, and recharging. If you want to exclude the lemon, the lime and the mint alone provide a very mojito-like taste!
Overall, drinking water keeps you hydrated and focused. It can help keep you awake as well as coffee without all the drawbacks of caffeine. Water doesn’t have to be one-note; try making any one of these infusions, and you’ll feel better in no time!
