Strawberry Lime Infused Water

Strawberry Lime Infused Water

This isn’t boring! I find myself drinking ice water in the summer instead of caffeinated drinks, or sodas loaded with sugars and artificial ingredients. We’re told to drink a gallon of water per day for our health, but, how? You’ll find the recipe below for my favorite. It makes getting enough water a day much easier! I tried six of my own creations with vegetables and herbs, fruits, extracts and spices, but the strawberry-lime was the best for me. Enjoy these other ideas I found at Hello Glow.  You might want to give these ideas a try:

Orange Chai Spice: sliced oranges, cardamom, cinnamon, clove, allspice

Vanilla Basil Strawberry: vanilla bean (remove seeds first), handful fresh basil, 1 cup sliced strawberries

Fennel Pear: thinly sliced fennel bulb plus a few green fronds, thin slices ripe, but firm pear

Basil Melon: sliced or cubed melon, handful basil leaves

Ginger Lime: sliced fresh ginger, sliced limes

Blueberry Cucumber Basil: handful fresh blueberries, sliced cucumber, handful basil

Lemon Lavender: slices of lemon, a few teaspoons lavender (tie in cheesecloth)

Raspberry Rose: handful of raspberries, organic fresh rose petals

Mango Pineapple Mint: sliced of firm-ripe mango, slices of pineapple, handful fresh mint

Apple Cinnamon: slices green or red apple, a few cinnamon sticks.

Experiment with these types of ingredients:

Herbs: Rosemary, thyme, mint, basil, cilantro, parsley.

Spices: Cinnamon sticks, cardamom pods, fresh ginger, cloves, vanilla bean

Edible flowers: Rose, lavender, citrus blossoms, hibiscus, pansies, violets (or any that are 100% pesticide free)

Fruit: Berries (fresh or frozen), melon, tropical fruits, citrus, apples, pears

Vegetables: Cucumber, celery, fennel, carrots

Water: Filtered water is great, but if you don’t have a filtration system, tap water is fine too
