Fruit Infused Water

Tuesday, April 16, 2013

Those who know me, know that I have a deep and biding love affair with Diet Pepsi.  (Not hating on Diet Coke also...just prefer pepsi.)  Now before you all go off and start telling me about why it's so bad for you and blah blah blah...don't bother. I've heard it all. And I love it still.  We're all entitled to a vice right? And at least I'm not doing crack.  Bright side people.  :)

All that being said, I've recently realized that my habit has been getting a little much.  I have nothing against water, but it's just so BORING.  I need taste y'all! Trying to reach a compromise, (that whole life change thing,) I've been experimenting with various fruit infusions in my waters to help liven them up & am loving the result so far! I'm not saying I'm giving up diet soda quite yet (because y'all do not want to know me if I don't have caffeine) but this seems like a tasty way to cut back a bit.  Here are a few of my latest faves...

:: Strawberry + Blackberry + Rosemary ::

:: Blackberry + Lime + Crushed Mint Leaves ::

:: Lime + Lemon + Orange ::

:: Orange + Strawberry ::

:: Cucumber + Lemon ::

I can't wait to expirament with more flavors! I'm ready for my sage to pop up and maybe do a blackberry/raspberry/sage mix and something with watermelon and cucumber! Do you have any favorite infusions? xoxo Fearsy

  1. Freeze your watermelon and then add it like ice cubes... you can do the same with the cucumbers! I am the same way, Ash.... I need taste!!!

  2. This isn't the healthiest tip BUT I love adding frozen watermelon (as mentioned by Emily) to a glass of white wine in the summer, with a splash of flavored carbonated water. So light and refreshing with a kick of fruit. :)These look delicious! :)

  4. What a good idea. I found you from keilah's blog. She did great on your blog design. I'm a Missouri girl too and I love your style so I had to follow. You can check me out on Vintagehoneybee.blogspot.com. Have a great day.

  6. I want to try all those different waters this summer, they'd be refreshing and something different from plain ol' water.
