Infused Water Ideas

April 21, 2022

For infused waters, wash your ingredients thoroughly. Slice whole fruit or cucumbers as thinly as possible to expose more surface area to give your water maximum flavour. Layer your ingredients in a pitcher or large mason jar. Add 4 to 6 cups of water to cover. Let the water infuse for a few hours or overnight. Store in the refrigerator and replenish water as needed. Use more or less of any of the ingredients to suit your personal taste.

Health Benefits: Infused water is blended with various fruits and herbs that can have enormous health benefits. In addition to just keeping you hydrated, this garnished water can help alleviate a number of uncomfortable symptoms—a great reason to work it into your daily routine.
