Not a fan of plain old water? Or maybe you’re just looking for a change of pace. Fruit-infused water is the perfect solution!

Made with a combination of fruit and optional vegetables, herbs, and spices, this water is not only refreshing, it also offers endless combinations so you’ll never get bored. My favorite is strawberry, basil and cucumber!

You can easily make a big glass pitcher of fruit-infused water, just add more fruit, veggies and herbs/spices. The longer it sits, the more flavorful it will be!
