5 DIY Infused Water Flavours For A Quick Detox
We really can’t stress on the importance of drinking water more. Don’t you remember the 8-glasses rule we were taught in kindergarten? In fact, every time a zit pops on my face or my tummy starts aching, my mom happily starts preaching about the importance of keeping myself hydrated. In my defense, I have tried my stint with those apps with annoying alarm tones that remind me to drink water, but alas, in vain! Lately, though, I was introduced to the concept of infused water with natural ingredients like fruits and veggies, and now I have my creative genes working on different permutations and combinations. The rage about infused water is totally justified, what with its detoxing power and oh-so-yum flavours that you can experiment with.
Not only does it boost metabolism, but studies have shown that it helps in weight loss, too. Total win-win situation, right?
Here are our 5 favourite natural flavours for infused water, but go ahead, mix and match different fruits, and quirk up the way you drink water!Courtesy:
1. Mojito Water
Turn your favourite drink into a healthy one with this amazing hack. All you need to do is put some mint leaves and lime slices (the more, the merrier) in a bottle, pour some water, and let it infuse for 2 hours to get the perfect flavour.
2. Apple Cinnamon Water
Apple pie is the only thing that strikes my head when I hear of apple and cinnamon together. But be creative and let your water imbibe this amazing flavour. Just drop apple slices in a pitcher and add a cinnamon stick. Place it in the fridge for 2 hours and you’re good to go!
3. Mixed Melon Melody
Grab any kind of melon you can get a hold of — watermelon, muskmelon, cantaloupe, honeydew melon, etc. Pour some water and ice, and let it chill to perfection.
4. Pineapple Cucumber Mint
The cooling effect of cucumbers is all you need to rejuvenate yourself after a tiring day. Experiment with pineapples and mint in your water to pamper your taste buds, and you’re all set to detox your system.
5. Strawberry Jalapeno Infused Water
Tease your taste buds with this out-of-the-box combo. The jalapenos add the right amount of spice to balance the sweetness of strawberries. Just work up your proportion of strawberries and jalapenos to get that surprising taste on your palate.
