10 Ways to Make Water More Exciting!

10 Ways to Make Water More Exciting!

It’s recommended we drink approximately 2 litres of water a day, which for some (myself included) isn’t an easy task.

To try and encourage myself to drink more, I’ve been looking at ways to make my water more exciting.

So far, it’s definitely helping and they are so easy to make.

It’s as simple as popping your ingredients into a jug or bottle of water and leaving to infuse for 2-4 hours.

To help you get started, here are some of my favourite flavours:

Cucumber and Mint

It’s so fresh and perfect for a hot day.

A top tip would be to tear up the mint before putting it in so you get all the flavour.

And, if you have the time, put in some frozen slices of cucumber.

Orange and Blueberry

Full of freshness, Vitamin C and antioxidants!

Pineapple and Jalapeno

This one is bursting with flavour and perfect for seeing off any of those spring colds.

Watermelon and Basil

You feel like you're relaxing on the beach with this one and even better, basil is full of antibacterial properties.

Apple and Cinnamon

Not only is cinnamon great for helping with digestion, this combo tastes like Christmas in a cup and who doesn’t love that?!

Lavender and Blackberry

This one helps with feeling relaxed and is packed full of antioxidants.

Aloe Vera and Lime

This mix will naturally increase energy and fight fatigue.

Kiwi and Blackberry

I love the mix of these flavours together and another recipe that is full of antioxidants.

Chia Seeds

This is a bit of a strange one but is full of health benefits. Chia seeds are rich in Omega 3 - fatty acids.

Mix with some lime for a bit of flavour.

The texture does take a bit of getting used to but it you stick with it it’s worthwhile.

Raspberry and Rose

If you close your eyes whilst drinking this one, you almost feel like you’re sitting in a beautiful English country garden.

Rose has great anti-inflammatory properties and is also said to reduce anxiety.

Let us know what you think or if you have any of your favourites that you would like to share!
