To make increasing water intake more appetizing and exciting. The #Betterfood team have created five exciting flavour infused waters below. As well as packing tons of flavour they are also healthy with no added sugar. These aren't sweet waters. This is water with subtle flavours infused into it. Water with a little something extra. Increasing fluid intake need not be boring! Try these refreshing flavours this July. Purchasing an infuser water bottle will make the process easier and also prevent spillages when enjoying your flavoured water!
- All Citrus Flavoured WaterSlice 1 orange, 1 lime, 1 lemon into rounds, then cut the rounds in half. Add to your infuser, press and twist with the handle of a wooden spoon. Press enough to release some of the juices, but don't pulverize the fruit into pieces. Top up with ice. Pour in water to the top. Stir it with the handle of a wooden spoon. Chill in the fridge. You can drink it right away, but the flavour intensifies if it's made an hour or two ahead. It's even better the next day.
- Raspberry Lime Flavoured WaterQuarter 2 limes; with your hands, squeeze the juice into the jar, then add the squeezed lime quarters. Add raspberries. Press and twist with a wooden spoon handle to release some of the juices (don't pulverize the fruit). Fill the jar with ice, then add water to the top. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.
- Pineapple Mint Flavoured Water Add a sprig of mint to the infuser. Bash the mint--the goal is to bruise the leaves and release their flavour--don't pulverize them into bits. Add pineapple pieces, press and twist with a wooden spoon handle to release juices. Add ice to the top and then water. Stir, cover, and refrigerate.
- Blackberry Sage Flavoured Water Add sage leaves to jar and bruise with a muddler. Add blackberries; press and twist with a wooden spoon handle to release their juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.
- Watermelon Rosemary Flavoured Water Add a sprig of rosemary to jar and press gently (rosemary releases a strong flavour without much pressing). Add watermelon cubes; twist and press gently to release juices. Fill jar with ice cubes, add water to the top, stir, cover and refrigerate.
