Bored with Your Water? Three Ways to Make It Taste Great

Group of glasses of healthy detox water with fruit over whiteIf you’re working to eliminate soda from your diet, sildenafil you might find plain water boring, but it doesn’t have to be that way. In today’s post, we’re sharing tips to help you hack your water and make it taste better. If it tastes better, you’ll drink more and stay hydrated year round.

Here are some ideas to make your water taste even better:

  1. Fresh fruit, such as lemons, limes, oranges, blackberries and raspberries taste great in water. Add them to a pitcher in the fridge and let them steep overnight.
  2. Veggies and herbs, such as cucumbers, basil, mint, and thyme taste great in water, especially when combined with fruit.

Think about some of the exotic ice cream flavors that have recently been showing up at gourmet shops: lemon basil, blackberry sage and others all make for a great tasting, low calorie hydration strategy for the summer.

Muddle them together (using a special tool called a muddler, or improvise with a spoon) to release the essential oils of the herbs and fruits. Add those first to your glass or pitcher, then add the ice if you’re drinking right away, or let your favorite flavor combos steep in the fridge overnight.

  1. Keep fresh lemons and limes on hand if you don’t want to do all the work in advance.

Here’s a water “recipe” we love:

Using a glass pitcher (because everything tastes better in glass!), toss in fresh lemons and fresh cucumber. Remove the cucumber peel if you don’t like it, or make the cucumber “striped” for visual effect. Add ice if you’re drinking right away, or add filtered water and let it all steep in the fridge until you’re ready to drink it.

The fresh cucumber and lemon will taste fantastic on a hot day when “plain old water” just isn’t appealing. Enjoy!
