Fruit-Infused Water

fruit_infused_water

As the temperatures start to warm up, I’m relearning the value ice-cold water has in my life. I adore the refreshing feeling it gives my body when I’ve been outside for a few hours in the sun. More than anything, I love to “dress” my water in something visually appealing!

I first had fruit-infused water at a spa in Disney World. They had a pitcher of cucumber melon water chilling by the snack bar for guests to enjoy. I never thought I could really enjoy and be satisfied by water alone but I was proven wrong! Adding fruit to something basic really makes it better.

This spring and summer I’ll be drinking a lot of this! Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Water pitcher (or a large water bottle if you need it on the go)
  • Cute drinking straws (for a festive look)
  • Cucumber
  • Lemon
  • Strawberries
  • Raspberries

These four fruits are the easiest to combine if the need arises. I also suggest when hosting a party creating a “water bar” for healthier guests. Before the party starts, chill glasses in the freezer to give them a frosted look and then take them out when your guests arrive. Garnish with an orange wedge.

Enjoy your water!

    I love infused water! I personally love to add fresh mint or lavender to my water. It’s so refreshing and gives it a mild flavor that’s much more enjoyable.

    I have been on a lemon and ice water kick this whole week and I absolutely LOVE cucumber infused water. Now I want to try out strawberries and raspberries! Have you read about the benefits of drinking lemon H2O everyday for a year? They are endless. Check it out when you get the chance. Thanks for sharing!
