Water is life and hydration is key – the words I truly stand by! Staying hydrated and controlling your water intake is crucial to your health and wellbeing, and even the slightest dehydration of your body may cause damage – that is why it is vital to have a sip of water every few minutes! If you’re not a water drinker but would love to make drinking more water your daily habit then you may consider naturally flavored water instead! Flavored water is an amazing alternative for those who cannot stand the pure taste of water but would like to increase their daily intake in a healthy way. The options for flavored water are endless – you can have it sweet or soar, or savory which depends on your taste preferences. Naturally flavored water will not only keep you hydrated but it will also be tasteful and refreshing! Here is a list of 8 Flavored Water Ideas you should consider to include in your diet!
1. Citrus Flavored Water
Naturally, soar taste of your water to keep your mind sharp and focused. It is ideal for those warm and sunny days or intense workout sessions at the gym. Simply slice 1 lemon, 1 lime and 1 orange or grapefruit in rounds and add to the big jar. Now press the slices with a wooden spoon to get some juice, add ice cubes and water. Give it a stir and enjoy your homemade healthy glass of flavored water.
2. Pineapple Mint Flavored Water
Herbs go very well with fruit in your water so always say ‘yes’ to healthy herbs! The combo of pineapple and mint is refreshing, naturally juicy and definitely nutritious. Throw into a jar a sprig of mint and a dash of water, and treat them with a wooden spoon to get a bit of juice out of it. Then add pineapple chunks and do the same! Ice cubes and water go next, give it a stir and enjoy!
3. Watermelon Rosemary Flavored Water
Watermelon is delicious and nutrient dense but also it can be a great isotonic! It is recommended for those who are physically active, especially weightlifters and runner since combined with a pinch of salt and lime can do wonders for your body. This time, however, we go for rosemary – a very aromatic herb and a subtle taste! Add a few watermelon cubes into a jar and treat it with a wooden spoon this time too! Stir in a sprig of rosemary, ice cubes, and water! Leave it aside for a couple of minutes and serve it cold or with extra ice cubes!
4. Cucumber And Mint Flavored Water
Veggies in your glass of water? What an odd thing to add! Believe it or not, it tastes delicious, it is refreshing and really hydrates you too. Slice 1/4 of cucumber and add a sprig of mint, ice cubes, and water, and that’s it! If you fancy extra vitamin C, stir in the juice of 1/2 lemon and enjoy!
5. Blackberry And Sage Flavored Water
This flavored water is truly outstanding! Add blackberries and sage, and treat it with a muddler to release the juice. Throw in ice cubes and water, stir it and serve!
6. Raspberry And Lime Flavored Water
Raspberries and lime is a bomb! This combination of flavors – the soar and the sweet – is so subtle and incredible that you should give it a go to see the amazingness yourself! Add a few slices of lime and a handful of raspberries, then ice cubes and water, stir it and it’s ready to be served!
7. Ginger Power Flavored Water
It goes without saying that you either like the taste of ginger or really dislike it! This is a real immune booster and it helps your digestion too. Add a few chunks of mango and a fair few slices of cucumber, a thumb size sliced ginger, ice cubes, and water – leave aside for 2 or 3 minutes to do wonders, and drink straight away!
8. Multivitamin Flavored Water
This is a real vitamin bomb! All you need is a bit of pomegranate, one kiwi and a couple of cherries – treat it with a wooden spoon to get that juice! Add ice cubes and water, and give it a stir! Simple and delicious!
