It’s that time of year again! It’s time to ease up on all those hot drinks and bring out your freshest fruit. Last year I jumped on the fruit infused water band-wagon and quickly became obsessed with it. What an easy way to get those 8 glasses of water in each day! Last spring I spend quite a bit of time experimenting with different flavors and mixtures. I found a lot of great recipes on Pinterest and came up with some of my own too. I thought I’d share my top 5 favorite recipes with you.
If you’ve never made your own fruit infused water, it’s easy! All you need is a pitcher (or you can use large mason jars like the cool kids do), fresh fruit, and water. Combine your sliced fruit and water in your pitcher, put the lid on, and then put it in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. (I usually let mine infuse overnight.) Side-note: The smaller the container, the more kick you will get from your fruit. I like to use a large pitcher which makes the fruit taste a little less pungent.)
- Lemon, strawberries, and 1 basil leaf
- Blueberries and lime
- Lemon and lime. (I prefer mine with just 1 lemon slice and 1 full lime sliced.)
- Berries and basil (You can choose any kind of berry you want! I like to mix raspberries and blueberries for this one.)
- Orange and kiwi
- Strawberry and kiwi (Sometimes during the summer I like to add a little watermelon too)
I hope you enjoy these recipes. There are a ton of different mixtures out there! Let me know which ones you like! Happy Spring!
