Flavoured Fruit Water

Fruit waters we love.
Fruit waters we love.

These five flavoured waters will help you increase your water intake, and they taste great. I am sharing the five flavours that my family and I enjoy the most. Kids love the glasses lidded bottles. The lid keeps the bugs out of the drink,when you're outside. Having coloured lids also makes it easy for children to know which one is theirs. Who knew water could taste this good?

Easy to Make and Quick

Prep time: 15 min
Cook time: 12 hours
Ready in: 12 hours 15 min
Yields: 5 Drinks

Basic Recipe

  • 5 Cups Water
  • 1 Whole Lemon, Sliced
  • 6-8 Mint Leaves (fresh), Chopped

Fruit Infused Water Directions

  1. Take five glass jars or bottles. Add your basic water mix to each. Set one bottle aside so one is kept as a basic drink. Line up the other four bottles, and add the fruit of your choice.
  2. Each bottle picture has the different berries and fruit written below it. The amount of fruit used for each is also listed there. When done, put on the lids and place in the fridge over night. In the morning, they will be ready to go.
  3. You can also take this basic recipe and use a juice jug for a much larger serving. Use six 8 oz glasses of water. If your juice jug holds more, then add till full. This will keep a week in the fridge. This can be the basic recipe you keep in the fridge to top up your drinks. Now all you have to do is add the fruit as needed.

Recommended Substitution

If you want to add a little jazz to the water, you make it half carbinated water or tonic water. The use of tonic water is good for people who have restless legs or leg cramps.

Some of my diabetes meds used to give me leg cramps, now I no longer have them. Increasing my water intake and drinking tonic water has helped me a lot. No more need for boring old water. Drink up and enjoy.

If there is a fruit water you use but it's not listed here, let me know so I can try it. These refreshing drinks will keep you hydrated on the hotest day. Drink up and enjoy.

        This is a great idea especially for summertime! And, it beats those expensive carbonated, infused water-drinks. I have a juicer, and a blender. I would like to try some of these.

        Hugssss,

        Tamara

        These all look refreshing. I will definitely have to try them. I have been hearing really good things about lemon water. I have also heard several great things and benefits of cucumber water as well. Great work.
