[Gluten-Free] Fruit-Infused Water

I'm a drinker. Yup, I admit it. In fact, I drink all day long. Sometimes I just can't get enough. I'm talking about water, of course. Geez, Louise. What, were you thinking?

The only problem about water is it can get a little boring. And when things get boring, watch out! That's when we start reaching for sugary drinks. I'm avoiding all that by adding Fruit-Infused Water to my daily routine. And I have to tell you, I am absolutely loving it!

Here are some of my favorite flavors so far:
                *orange + lemon + lime
                *orange + lemon + mint
                *raspberry + mint
                *cucumber + mint

The "recipe" is pretty simple. Just place slices/sprigs of your favorite flavors into a pitcher or glass. Fill with water. The longer it sits, the more intense the flavor. Then, just keep refilling with water. Drink the infused water within 2 days to keep the flavors fresh. (And I try to use organic produce whenever possible)

Once you find your favorite flavors, it's easy to get hooked! If you come to a party at my house, there is a good chance you'll see a big pitcher of infused water on the drink table. It's not just tasty, it's also very pretty to look at. Sometimes I'll serve a pitcher of it on the dinner table just for Patrick and me. It's a little touch that makes any night seem more special.

I love to make a big batch and sip on it all day. Or if I'm out and about I pour some in my reusable water bottle that I always keep with me. It's a fun way to drink water at work or on the go. So, what are you waiting for? Go get your drink on! You know what I mean...

Here's to the beginning of summer! Cheers :)


  1. I was feeling so sluggish and bloated for thus long, I had been desperate for help. I attempted a few others
    Products, but none provided the relief I was looking for. Having seen the detox bottle online, I decided to try it and I’m so happy I took the chance. I am down 5 pounds and I feel incredible!

  2. Keep it up!! You have done the nice job having provided the latest information. motor insurance quotes

  3. This pitcher can be used for infusing any kind of liquid with fruit, not just water. It's super easy to use and the flavored liquid of choice comes out amazing every time. I always wondered why you needed a "basket" for your fruit. Well now I know! Keeping the fruit separate from the water keeps the spout from getting clogged and keeps fruit out of your drink …..
