BENEFITS OF INFUSED WATER
Ok, so the water tastes good but are there added benefits? YES while actually eating the celery will give you more vitamins and fiber adding fruits and vegetables to your water is healthy and does give you health benefits. Their vitamins and minerals do seep into the water not only flavoring it but giving it a little nutrition.
HELPING YOU DRINK MORE WATER
Having a delicious flavored water helps you to drink more water, which in itself is a MAJOR health benefit! So when you find yourself tiring of plain water add some veggies or fruit to it.
HOW TO MAKE INFUSED VEGETABLE WATER
I mean, is there really a step by step process for this? No. Just make sure you have lots of ice, water and these vegetables for a really great flavor combination.
- fill to the bring with cold water
HOW LONG DO I NEED TO LET THE WATER SIT FOR FLAVOR?
You want the water to at LEAST sit for 30 minutes, it can sit up to over night for a really flavorful water.
HOW LONG DOES INFUSED WATER LAST?
If kept refrigerated it can last for about a week. After about 24 hours you may want to remove the vegetables from the water and just kept the water.
WHAT’S THE BEST ICE?
For a party I love to grab a bag of pebble ice from Sonic or Chick fil a (some gas stations sell it too!). If you want a chunkier ice, which will not meltas fast, then go for a filtered water ice.
HOW MUCH ICE DO I ADD?
If you are serving for a party I like to fill it completely full of ice, so it will continue to keep the water cold as it melts over the hours of a party. But if you are making this for yourself you don’t even have to put any ice in it at all. Just add the vegetables to water and place in your fridge, and let chill.
ADD A HOLIDAY TWIST TO THIS DRINK!
I LOVE to add a handful of fresh cranberries to the recipe for a red and green twist. Feel free to add:
- CHRISTMAS: fresh cranberries
- 4th of July or other patriotic holiday’s : blueberries and strawberries or raspberries
- St. Patricks Day: add some green apples
