Why Use Healthy Ways to Flavor Water

Drinking water, in general, helps with water weight and speeding up your metabolism. Adding fruit and veggies to your water gives you the added benefit of having vitamins, antioxidants, and flavor with your water.

The flavor alone is a benefit because it can help kick those soda and juice cravings with virtually no calories.

How to Flavor Water Naturally

Healthy Ways to Flavor WaterFresh Fusions 32oz Fruit Infuser Water Bottle Shaker Combo Set + An Insulated Sleeve

The easiest way to flavor water naturally is with a fruit infuser water bottle.

With a fruit infuser water bottle, you just have to stick your fruit and/or veggies in to the fruit infusion chamber and pour your water in to the regular portion of the bottle. Then let it sit in the fridge overnight (or for a few hours) and you’re good to go the next day!

I specifically love this bottle because you really get the most bang for your buck. It comes with everything you need to infuse your drink, plus a blender ball to use as a shaker AND an insulated sleeve to keep your drink cold for a few hours. It also holds 32oz vs other ones that only hold 25oz. Oh, and it comes with a water recipe book too!

Healthy Ways to Flavor WaterPremium Glass Water Bottle with Silicone Sleeve and Stainless Steel LidAnother option to make your flavored water is a simple glass bottle.

Of course, since it’s glass, you’ll want one with a silicone cover so that it doesn’t shatter.

With a glass bottle, you just throw all of your fruit and/or veggies in to the bottle and then fill the rest of the bottle with water.

Then leave it in the fridge for a few hours so it has time to infuse and drink it when ready!

With this bottle, I recommend going for the 32oz because a 12oz bottle isn’t going to feel like nearly enough water! Remember, you should be drinking half of your weight in water daily.

    As a person who struggles with drinking water I have to have some type of fruit in it. I really love watermelon flavored water along with a little mint. Drinking water is really important here in Phoenix so this is something I will be saving for later.

    I love this. I usually do iced tea, with berries and lemon for my family. I have to add sugar, because they love sweet things, but at least it is natural.
    Thank you
