Fruit-infused water, a refreshing and delicious way of staying hydrated. It’s super easy to prepare and it’s ready in 5 minutes with only 4 ingredients.

Fruit-infused water is a great option if you want to drink more water. Sometimes, drinking plain water can be a little hard, so I like to add some fruits to give it flavor and so it’s easier for me to stay hydrated while enjoying a delicious beverage.

This drink is actually so healthy, as it’s made with only water and some fruits, so it’s the best substitute for soda or other artificially sweetened drinks, such as store-bought juice.

Besides, it’s a super refreshing drink and it feels so good when you drink it during a hot summer day. I like to add some ice cubes to it to make it even more refreshing and it’s perfect to serve when you have guests!

How long does fruit-infused water last?

It’s important to keep it in a sealed jar or an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 or 2 days. That way the water will maintain its fruity flavor and it will keep its properties.

When to drink fruit-infused water

You can drink fruit-infused water just like regular water, with your meals, or while doing sport. It’s a great substitute for soda or artificially sweetened fruit juices because it’s totally sugar-free and super healthy.

What to do with the fruit-infused water’s leftover fruit

You can use it to prepare plenty of different recipes! Feel free to add it to your vegan oatmeal or even prepare some smoothies with it. Another option is to blend and use it as a natural sweetener on recipes like vegan brownies or anything you can think of!
