I have written before about how to drink more water every day. And one of the tips was to flavour your water. I have a few favourite recipes when it comes to flavouring my own water. I have recently also started looking for some new ways to keep my water tasting great and fresh. I still seem to gravitate back to two favourite recipes I have.
How much fruit and herbs you use in the recipes depends largely on how much water you’re drinking. It’s always a great idea to make a big jug (1-2 litres) and finish it in the day. But, often, you’re not in one place and can’t carry a huge jug of water around with you. For cases like this I suggest using an infuser water bottle and refilling it with cold water as you go. Just make sure to empty it out at the end of the day and make a fresh one in the morning. The more you refill the less nutrients your fruit will hold.
My two favourite flavoured water recipes are;
- Citrus Zing
This is a fantastic, fresh and super healthy flavoured water and it’s also a great water to drink to boost your metabolism and while doing a detox.Thinly sliced orange
Some slices of cucumber
A few broken up mint leaves
Lots of ice
- Strawberry Mango Soother
This water (well actually tea) can be drunk both hot or cold. It’s really yummy and it gives me amazing energy.Herbalife herbal beverage (hot or cold)
A cap full of Herbalife mango flavoured aloe concentrate
Freshly cut strawberries
