Make Your Own Fruit Infused Water
Infusing water involves steeping fruits, veggies, and/or herbs with water until the flavors fuse together. Infused water is a perfect substitute for sugary beverages such as fruit juices, pre-made iced tea, soda, and energy drinks.
Infusing water is incredibly easy! I bring infused water with me everywhere I go.
Grab your favorite reusable water container (preferably glass or clear plastic – it’s a much more beautiful display) and add water, ice, and any combination mentioned below (or create your own.) Leave the fruit, veggies, and/or herbs in the bottle all day and refill the bottle with water and ice as needed.
For a large batch of infused water, fill a pitcher with water, mix in some chopped up fruits, veggies, and/or herbs and let it sit in the fridge for 2 – 8 hours (depending on how strong you want the flavor to be.)
Another method is to take your ingredients (fruit, veggies, herbs) and puree them. Use a sieve to strain the pulp, dilute with water and sip with a straw.
