Infused H2o

Today I’m sharing 2 new ways to add a little flavor and a lot of posh to your plain old water. Of course we all know how important water is for our bodies, but it’s so easy to grow tired of it. Especially when you drink it day in and day out as I do. But with just a few subtle additions, you most certainly won’t dread getting through those 8 glasses every day! Lightly flavored and so easy to customize, based on the fruits and veggies you love.

In addition to the refreshing flavors, infused water, which can also be known as detox water, has many health benefits. Depending on the fruits or veggies you choose to infuse, it can aid in weight loss, digestion and toxin removal, to name a few. Totally worth it!

I’ve enjoyed so many different flavors lately! My mom made a lemon and rosemary infusion that I loved and my most recent favorites are Mango + Lime + Cilantro, and Grapefruit + Rosemary. I usually drink a mason jar full after finishing up with pilates for the day.

If you’re not a fan of the herbs, feel free to just stick with just the fruits as they have a tendency to overpower.

Mango, Lime and Cilantro H2o

I just happen to really love these flavor combinations! The citrus notes paired with the mango’s sweetness and the freshness from the cilantro make such a delightful trio.

  1. Forget the water, the photography was mouth watering! lol! I’d love to try the cilantro combo, especially b/c cilantro helps aid the release of metals in the body. Also, just a few days ago, I put this nifty water bottle on my “wish list” on Amazon. I thought it was a cool way to carry your infused water around on the go: http://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GH6ZR0Y/ref=wl_it_dp_o_pd_nS_ttl?_encoding=UTF8&colid=O0DCGQBLDC5W&coliid=IV543QJT4JAME&psc=1

  2. Brandi Reid I now have to try the Mango, Lime and cilantro three of most favorite flavors! I’ve tried Cucumbers and Lemon, Lemon and Rosemary which right now I’m obsessing over. But I drink so much water now and even my skin is plumper. 🙂 So goo.! And Brandie Sellers is absolutely correct in saying your Photography is Stunning! I need you one day to photograph our photo-shoot at the academy. Serious, on top of your obvious talents as a crafter and blogger you area beautiful eye for photography. Thanks for sharing your totally posh recipes for infused water Or as Amaia would say “refused water”

    • Yes! And I have you to thank for introducing it to me! I knew you’d like the idea of mango, lime and cilantro, just make sure your mango is ripe enough so the flavor really comes through! Not sure I’m photo-shoot material as I still have so much to learn about photography, but I’m so flattered by your sweet words. Thanks again and enjoy your refused water! 😀
