Infused Water - Stay Hydrated This Summer
With the weather heating up and Christmas around the corner already (how quick this year has gone) We have put together a list of our favourite infused water recipes for you to try out in place of sugary beverages, alcohol and add some excitement to your 8 glasses a day.
1. Cucumber Mint
Thinly slice one cucumber. Peel if it isn’t organic! Add the sliced cucumbers to a 1 litre glass jar, add 8 muddled fresh mint leaves, and fill with filtered water. Stir gently and place in refrigerator for at least 4 hours or overnight.
2. Citrus Blueberry
Slice two organic oranges into thin slices (leave the rind on for better flavor). Add sliced oranges and 1 cup of blueberries to a litre size glass jar. Add filtered water to fill the jar and stir gently. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours and store in refrigerator.
3. Pineapple Mint
One of my favorites! Peel and thinly slice about 1/4 of a pineapple. The more thinly sliced the pineapple, the more flavor it will infuse. Add to a 1 litre size glass jar with 10-12 leaves of muddled fresh mint. Add filtered water to fill and stir gently. Store in refrigerator.
4. Watermelon Basil
Add about 2 cups of finely chopped fresh watermelon (without rind) to a 1 litre-size glass jar. Add 15 leaves of muddled basil and filtered water to fill. Store in refrigerator and allow at least 4 hours to infuse.
5. Strawberry Lemon
Like strawberry lemonade, but better! Add 15 fresh strawberries, washed and finely sliced to a 1 litre glass jar. Add one sliced lemon with rind on. Fill with water. Stir gently and refrigerate 4 hours or overnight in refrigerator and enjoy.
6. Cherry Lime
Reminiscent of cherry limeade, minus the sugar coma. Add two cups of fresh cherries, cut in half, and one fresh lime, sliced into thin slices, to a litre-size glass jar. Add water to fill. Mix gently and store in refrigerator until ready to drink.
7. Grapefruit Raspberry
Another one of my favorites! Add one grapefruit, thinly sliced with rind on, to a litre-size glass jar. Then add ½ cup slightly muddled fresh raspberries. Add water and mix well. Store in refrigerator for at least 4 hours before drinking.
8. Mango Pineapple
Peel and thinly slice one fresh mango. Add to litre glass jar. Add 1 cup of finely chopped pineapple and filtered water. Allow to infuse in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours before drinking.
9. Grape Orange
Place 2 cups of halved organic grapes into a litre-size glass jar. Add one orange, thinly sliced with rind on. Refrigerate overnight for best flavor.
10. Pineapple Basil
Add ¼ of a sliced fresh pineapple and 15 leaves of muddled fresh basil to a litre glass jar. Add filtered water. Infuse overnight and enjoy.
