Fruit infused water
Submitted by: CARABY


Introduction

I picked up this little trick at an upscale hotel I stayed at last year. It's delicious and helps make the transition from sweetened drinks to water so much easier. It tastes just like plain water until the fruity aftertaste hits you! Use any fruit that you want. I like strawberries.

Minutes to Prepare: 2
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

Fresh strawberries (or other fruit)
Filtered water

Directions

Drop some whole strawberries (stems and leaves removed) into a pitcher of water and refrigerate overnight. Keeps well in the refrigerator for several days.

Number of Servings: 8

    Thanks for the suggestion of the strawberries, I never would have thought of that. I have started adding quartered lemons to my water bottle. I still struggle with drinking my 8 glasses, but the water I do drink definitely goes down a lot easier with the lemon.

    another variation:
quarter lemons and oranges,
put them in a jug of water.
makes drinking attractive as well!

add fresh mint leaves if desired.
