Let’s be honest here, sometimes water can get really boring, but you need 8 glasses of it (at least!) to stay healthy! More so if you plan on crushing a work out with us. Adding some fruits or herbs to spice things up can be a huge game-changer and help you hit that 64 oz goal or cut your sugar cravings. That’s why infused water is so amazing! It tastes great, and you can feel good drinking it.
Prep this on the weekend or in the morning before work and have it ready for whenever you need it. Let it infuse for a few hours before you plan on drinking it for the best flavor. Need some ideas to get started? We’re one step ahead of you!
For these recipe’s we’ll be measuring everything in parts, that way no matter how much you plan on making, there is no need to convert anything! You’re welcome 😊
Take 2 parts blueberries and 1 part mint, drop them into a pitcher, reusable water bottle or whatever container you plan on using and gently muddle it to bring out the flavors. Then add in 4 parts water, and you are good to go!
Cucumber and Lime–
Slice those suckers up, to equal 1 part, add in 3 parts water and give it a stir or shake! Super fast, and super tasty!
Similar to the blueberry mint, you’ll be taking 2 parts strawberry, and 4 parts water, except this time you’ll only want to use a half part of basil. Give the flavors a muddle before adding in the water. This one is ready to drink now or later, it tastes great whenever!
Apple, Cinnamon, and Pear–
Chop 2 parts fruit into squares, and this time the amount you plan on making really does matter. For a water bottle, only add 1 stick of cinnamon; but if you plan on making more than 16 oz, feel free to add more sticks. A pitcher should have 3-4. Let this one sit for at least 2 hours before drinking to let all the flavors mingle.
Take Orange, Lemon, and Lime, and slice in rounds. This recipe is better used for larger pitchers as it requires lots of fruits that most people wouldn’t eat on their own. (Unless you like eating lemon or lime as is, if so; you do you boo!) Stack the rounds into your container and add 6 parts water.
The possibilities are endless! Now go forth and drink some fancy water!
