Water is so beneficial for you. It’s great for your skin and makes you look younger. It flushes out toxins, helps you eat less, the list goes on an on.
Everyone can drink more of it. So, I thought it’d be fun to add a little bit of flavor to my water by adding fruit slices. This way, my family and I will be more enticed to drink it.
I make a batch in the morning and line the Mason jars up, so each time we open the fridge we grab one. We take them when we run errands or sip on them when we watch TV. Not only does the fruit infused water taste good, the Mason jars are so pretty to look at. I feel like I’m at the spa each time I sip on one.
I also love using the Mason jars to put the fruit infused water in because they are reusable and best of all BPA free.
I designed some labels for my Mason jar lids using Onlinelabel.com’s Maestro Label Designer. Instead of printing the labels out with my inkjet printer, which I normally do, I had them custom printed for me using their Waterproof Polyester Laser 2.5” OL350LP circle labels. I can toss them in the dishwater and not worry about them being destroyed in one wash. They come out of the dishwasher like they went in.

Here are some of my favorite recipes:
(Note: I found you get more flavor in your water by chopping your fruit into smaller pieces.)
Strawberry and Lemon Infused Water:
Chop up one or two organic strawberries and squeeze your lemon into your water.
Orange and Blueberry Infused Water:
Toss a small handful of organic blueberries and an orange slice into your Mason jar.
Watermelon, Lime and Mint Infused Water:
Cut up watermelon into small chunks, squeeze lime and add chopped sprigs of mint to your water.
Cucumber and Mint Infused Water:
Cut a cucumber slice into quarters toss them with chopped sprigs of mint into your water.
Orange, Strawberry and Mint Infused Water:
Cut strawberries and oranges into small pieces and add them to your water with chopped mint.
Personally, I LOVE the Watermelon, Lime and Mint infused water. What is your favorite? What other flavors can you come up with? The possibilities are endless!
