5 YUMMY INFUSED WATER RECIPES


via @monikh


The temperature is rising as summer is really starting to settle in. We have said it before here at LIVISH but we will say it again... YOU GOTTA STAY HYDRATED! I myself am quick to jump to make a glass of lemonade during the summer days at home but all of that sugar isn't very healthy. And since my hatred for sparkling water is unanimous across all brands I've starting having fun with infused water and I think you should too!


Here are a few recipes you can try this weekend!



For Strawberry, Basil and Lemon

1/2 cup sliced strawberries

A few fresh basil leaves torn

1 lemon sliced

After preparing give it 1-2 hours at room temperature or 3-4 hours in the fridge for the best flavor results. If you choose to infuse for more than 4 hours remove the fruits and herbs from the water after the 4th hour to prevent the fruit from decomposing in the water. Infused water lasts is good for up to 3 days when stored in the fridge.


If the recommended amount is 8 glasses a day, why not amp it up with tons of health benefits and flavor?! If you try any of them out let us know in the comments or via our socials!
