Infused Waters are easy to make.

We have found a thirst quenching answer: fruit infused waters. Infused waters are easy to make, nutritious, and refreshing. Simply use any fresh fruit (except bananas — they don’t work well), herbs, and spices to flavor your once plain water to create a perfect everyday to drink.

What to Do:

  1. Choose which recipe you’re making — or come up with your own combination — and gather all of the ingredients.
  2. Place the fruit, herbs, and/or spices in the bottom of one of the glass jars, and muddle with a wooden spoon. (That basically means mash up the fruit in the bottom of the jar to release some of the flavor-filled juices.)
  3. Fill the jar with water and give it a taste. (You can also fill the jar with seltzer water for a fizzy treat.) If you’d like something a bit sweeter, try adding some agave (and mix until dissolved).
  4. Enjoy as-is or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor.
