HOW TO MAKE FLAVORED WATER

It’s so easy to make flavored water and flavored sparkling water!  Adding fresh fruit, unsweetened fruit juices and herbs make the best natural water flavoring you can use. You don’t need to buy the expensive flavored water brands at the store, you can make your own flavored water at home!  The taste is far superior!

  • Fruit Juice:  Adding fruit juice to water makes a healthy water flavoring.  Mix about 1/4 cup of your favorite unsweetened fruit juice (fresh or bottled) to a tall glass of iced water (regular or sparkling).
  • Flavored Ice Cubes:  Add fruit flavored ice cubes to a tall glass of water (regular or sparkling).  As the ice cubes slowly melt, they’ll add a delicious refreshing pop of flavor to your chilled water (along with a little vitamin and antioxidant boost).
  • Fruit Infused Water:  Add whole fresh fruit (and herbs) to a tall glass of water (regular or sparkling) to make fruit infused water.

I personally love to have freezer bags filled with my favorite flavored ice cubes so I can pop them in my water whenever I want.

If you are dehydrated, some of the biggest side effects can be headaches, lack of energy,  a weakened immune system (frequent colds and slow wound healing), foggy thinking. Dehydration can happen to anyone, but some people are at a greater risk, such as athletes who are in training and perform endurance events.  People with chronic illnesses. Infants, children and older folks. Dehydration in the elderly is quite common.

I have several ice cube trays (that I purchased at Target) that I fill by pouring my favorite juices through this funnel (also purchased at Target).  The funnel is great because there’s less spillage and less mess.

After the cubes are frozen – I store them in freezer bags in the freezer.  It’s nice to keep an assortment of flavors in the freezer to switch things up.

Pop a few in a tall glass of water and enjoy!

You can make your flavored ice cubes with cranberry juice (my personal favorite), pineapple juice (second favorite), orange-carrot juice, healthy lemonade, pink lemonade, grape juice, and my favorite beet, apple, ginger and parsley juice blend.  Sometimes when I buy myself a juice blend at my favorite health food store, I’ll buy an extra to freeze into ice cubes.  I also love to make green tea ice cubes!  Have fun creating your own personal favorite healthy cubes to add to your water.

Besides transforming water into something delicious, try adding a few of these juice cubes in a blender and make crushed ice for a frozen snack for your kiddos.  They’ll love it during the summer months!!  I did when I was a kid!!
