The summer is gearing up here in Florida. The high’s last week were in the low 90’s! We are doing our best to continue to eat healthy this year. Although I have to admit that I am really having a hard time putting away the soda. I crave the sweet carbonated drink. I know it’s a bad habit. Lately, I have seen several fruit infused water photos shared on Facebook and Pinterest. This weekend I decided to have a go at making our own fruit infused water. I picked up a nifty fruit infused water pitcher at Target and stopped by the local Farmer’s Market before creating my own infused water.
Strawberry Lime Mint Infused Water
- 3 large strawberry's
- 2 springs of mint leaves
- ½ lime
- Slice strawberry's and limes. Bruise the mint leaves by rubbing in your palms or pressing on them with a spoon. You want to release the flavors of the mint. Add all ingredients to pitcher, fill with water and ice. Refrigerate 1-3 hours before serving.
This fruit infused mixture is absolutely refreshing. The sweetness from the strawberry with a hint of mint and dash of lime flavoring is delicious. It’s a refreshing change to plain water and has helped me curb my cravings for the soda. I cannot sing praises enough for how pleased I am with fruit infused water. I am looking forward to trying a pineapple concoction soon!
