Tips for easy flavoured water ideas

1. Use a ratio of 1 cup of fruit to 2-3 cups of water.

3. If using herbs, bruise them slightly with your hands before adding them to the water.

4. Let the fruit and water sit for at least 30 minutes before drinking.

5. For a stronger flavour, infuse the water overnight in the fridge.

6. If using citrus fruits, be sure to remove any seeds before adding them to the water.

7. Drink your fruit-infused water for the best flavour within 2-3 days.

Do I need to add sweetener to my fruit-infused water?

No, you don’t need to add sweetener to your fruit-infused water unless you want to. The natural sugars in the fruit will provide enough sweetness for most people. However, if you have a sweet tooth or are trying to cut down on sugar, you can add a small amount of honey, agave nectar, or stevia to taste.
