Fruit-infused Water Recipes

We’re starting easy on these #occasionallyfit posts, if you’ve seen my first one on ‘how to drink more water’. I strongly advocate the importance of having a cup of lemon water a day as it contributes to brighter and clearer skin. Running on the same theme, here are some fruit-infused water recipes my team and I tried out! This post is dedicated to those of you are not huge fans of drinking water and would more often than not, reach for juices or vitamin water. Read on for fruit-infused water recipes which are not only are they really fun to prepare but would also bring heaps of benefits to your being.

Blueberry + Strawberry

Why it’s good for you: 
Rich in antioxidants, flushes toxins & fights inflammation

Taste review: 
This was the recipe with the lightest taste change. Expect a very faint berry taste to your water. Cut up the berries for an enhanced berry taste, or soak for a longer time if you like a stronger taste!

ingredient2

Lemon + Cucumber + Mint

Why it’s good for you:  
Helps in digestion and hydration, boosts immune system & rejuvenates skin

Taste review:
This drink fights for the title ‘ Most Refreshing Mix’ when compared to the watermelon + mint mix. This one makes for a great cleanse and detox drink. Choose this mix if you’re looking for brighter and more radiant skin while consuming something that strengthens your immune system.

Watermelon + Mint

Why it’s good for you: 
Helps with digestion, eases stomachaches & flushes toxins

Taste review:
Best taken on a hot humid day. Ultra refreshing and great for gatherings or parties you’re throwing. The watermelon and mint adds a pop of color to an otherwise plain beverage choice. Throw in some ice and serve in a clear glass, you’ll have a pretty fun and healthy drink to share!

Dragonfruit + Pineapple

Why it’s good for you: 
S
trengthens immune system

Taste review: 
If you have a sweet tooth, THIS RECIPE IS MADE FOR YOU. This recipe however, turns the water pink ( as you can tell from the gif). The girls at the office loved this sweet drink but if you’re like me and you prefer more refreshingly tangy options, please refer to the recipes at the top.

My ultimate favourite mix would be the lemon + cucumber + mint recipe. I prefer my drinks with a refreshing and tangy touch. It would be a great pick-me-up as well as a fresh jolt of energy I desperately need throughout my day.
