It’s super healthy (and tasty!) to drink infused water, and I’ve been obsessed with it lately! Infused water is basically just water with some kind of fruit, herbs, etc. in it. I made some today with one whole lemon and and one small orange. I just cut them up into pieces and dropped them in! Then I shook it all up so that the juices from the fruit would infuse the water.
(Notice how I tried to be all artsy by taking this picture outside on the porch…)
Doing one with lemon is especially healthy for you because lemons are loaded with antioxidants. They are also very high in vitamin C! Drinking lemon infused water can even give your skin a healthy glow.
As you know, lemons are very sour! I put the orange in to give the water some sweetness and extra flavor, and also to gain the extra health benefits. As for how much fruit to put in the water, it’s really up to you. Clearly, the more fruit the more benefits! Here’s a picture that shows a little better the amount of fruit in the jar.
IT LOOKS SO GOOD, AM I RIGHT? Actually, no need to answer that question cause I’ve been drinking it and I know it’s good.
