Water tastes so much better when it’s infused with fruit! This citrus blackberry infused water is delicious and refreshing – perfect for summertime.
Here we are, a day after Easter, and I’m kind of giggling at this post. Giggling because nothing says, “Kelly thinks she overdid it,” like a container of infused water in the refrigerator. If you see a big jug of lemon water or berry water sitting in my fridge, that’s a sure sign that I’ve had it up to here with sugar and holiday treats.
Anyway, Easter was fun, and included tons of delicious food, but now I’m done for a while. I’m ready to move on and get lots of fruits and veggies in this week and get away from the jelly beans and chocolate eggs. One thing that helps me when I’ve eaten a lot of sweets is to make sure I’m getting enough water. Staying hydrated helps flush that sugar out of my system and helps me feel more energetic.
I love to drink infused water when I remember to make it. Ice water is great on its own, but I love the flavor of water and fruit. This citrus blackberry infused water is one of my favorite combinations.
One of the benefits of drinking infused water is that it looks and tastes better than plain water. The refreshing taste and appearance may make you more likely to drink water, which results in better hydration and better health.
You’ll love the light and summery orange and berry flavors in this beverage. No calories and no added sugar make this a healthy choice to sip on all summer long.
Whether you’re dealing with a post holiday sugar overload or not, I think you’ll love this citrus blackberry infused water! If you’d like an even prettier drink, you may want to try this rainbow citrus infused water.
