Trying to drink more water? Infused water tastes better and encourages you to drink more
We all know that drinking more water is one of the best thing you can do for your health. Yet for many of us drinking more water can be a struggle because it simply tastes so dull. If you are trying to drink more water this summer, and you’d like a helping hand, then try infusing your water. This makes it look more appealing, taste better, and can even give some health benefits too!
I usually just infuse in a large glass, but you could also make up a bottle or a glass jug in the fridge and keep it topped up – change the water and fruit or leaves daily to keep it fresh and don’t use plastic as it will change the taste of your lovely infused water.
When you add your ingredients give them a little squeeze, and crush the leaves in your fingertips before adding to the water in order to release the flavour and oils. Infused water tastes better than simply squeezing the juice from the same fruit because there is also flavour coming from the rind which leaches into your water. And it looks better, which will encourage you to drink it.
These infusions are popular and worth a try: grapefruit and rosemary, strawberry and lime, watermelon, pineapple and basil. But of course you can always just make up your own! Let us know if you come up with a good combination.
You can even make infused water ice cubes to add to your glass. Put washed basil, mint or fruit into an ice cube tray and top up with water, freeze and bring out of the freezer when you need them. These also work outstandingly well in a jug of Pimms, but that’s another story…!
