Do you every grow tired of drinking plain old water? It’s o.k. if you said yes…I do too! Instead of reaching for a calorie-rich beverage like juice, soda, energy drinks or Gatorade or calorie-free flavored waters made with artificial sweetener (which most are by the way), make your own fruit-infused water! It’s refreshing, zero calories (unless you eat the fruit at the bottom) and adds a touch of natural flavor.

 


Here’s what you’ll need:

  • Large glass pitcher
  • 1/2 gallon of water (can be sparkling water if you are serving it right away)
  • Fresh fruit or vegetable (try one or more of the following):
    • Orange slices
    • Lemon slices
    • Lime slices
    • Watermelon cubes
    • Cantaloupe cubes
    • Berries – either single berry or mixed berries
    • Cucumber slices
    • Mango cubes
    • Pineapple cubes
  • Fresh herbs (optional)
    • Mint leaves
    • Cilantro leaves
    • Lavender
    • Basil leaves

Here’s what to do:

  1. Place sliced or cubed fruit/vegetables (and fresh herbs if desired) in pitcher
  2. Cover with cold water
  3. Infuse for at least 2 hours in refrigerator
  4. Add ice if desired and enjoy!

Just in time for summer…

Pineapple-Mint Water:

1/2 gallon water
1/4 pineapple, peeled and cut into cubes
8 to 10 mint leaves

Place water in pitcher and add pineapple and mint leaves. Refrigerate for at least two hours. Pour over ice and enjoy!
