Had to repost this and share. Many people tell me, “I hate plain water.” In the summertime, water is essential. Here is a great way to jazz up your water and give it some sweet flavor without the extra calories from processed sugar. Why not hydrate with natural fruit in your water rather than “inflam-mate.” Happy drinking! #KeepItFresh #CitrusLife
Fruit – Whatever kind you like (except bananas); make sure it’s good and ripe for maximum sweetness and flavor. Use all kinds of citrus and berries. Pineapple and watermelon work well for flavoring water.
Herbs – These are optional, but many herbs are a surprising complement to fruit flavors; almost any herb will work depending on your personal preference
Jars or pitchers – Use 2 quart mason jars primarily, but any 2 quart pitcher will do. Fruit infusion pitcher is another option if you think you’ll be making infused waters regulary; a very easy, tidy way to strain fruit from water.
Muddler or wooden spoon for mashing fruit and herbs
Water – Use filtered water, but regular tap water is fine if it is hygienic.
