Flavoured Water Ideas
On a summers day it’s nice to sit back with a refreshing drink but sometimes water can be, well, boring. These flavoured water ideas turn plain water into something beautiful, refreshing and naturally colourful. After making these flavoured waters, I left my children with the chopped up fruit and herbs, then let them create their own bottle of magic. They were so excited to experiment with any whacky combination they liked and use their own bottles and straws.
Flavoured waters makes it easier to drink more water, especially children. It is also a great way to get children off the fizzy drinks or fruit juice until they are ready for plain water.
Say goodbye to bottled water and soft drinks. 90% of the cost of bottled water is to pay for packaging, distribution, shipping, marketing and then recycling. Use some of these flavoured water ideas to add to your water bottle at the gym or at school. Don’t buy juice which has as much sugar as some soda drinks, or rehydration drinks, make these flavoured waters instead. No sugar, no waste, no recycling, inexpensive and healthy.
And remember how much sugar is in a juice. As much as some sodas. Eat the fruit, not the juice, to get all the fibre and fresh nutrients. Take a look at sugarstacks.com to see how much sugar is in everyday food and drink. It’s an eye opener.
Transform ice cubes with berries. Just pop 2 or 3 berries into an ice cube tray and fill them with water. As the ice cube melts, the berry is released to eat! Experiment with freezing other fruit, citrus or herbs.
