What is a naturally flavored water?

A naturally flavored water is a mix of fruits, herbs and even some vegetables with cold water, a better soft-drink alternative. Whether you are looking for a healthier alternative for processed beverages or simply dislike drinking plain water, this is your way out. It can be made with ease and the results are awesome.

How to make it:

Supplies needed

  • Cold water;
  • Fruits: whatever kind you like. Make sure you choose a good and ripe one for better sweetness and flavor. Try using different kinds of citrus and berries mixed together. Watermelon and pineapple, for example, also work very well for flavoring water;
  • Herbs: they are all optional but they surely bring unique and refreshing flavors to your drink;
  • Jars or pitchers.

Always remember to blend different fruits and flavors in order to achieve an even more delicious result. Choose the flavors you like most and press the chosen fruits/herbs in a  recipient. Up next transfer the mixture to a jar or bottle, fill with cold water, sweeten and blend it very well.
