Flavoured water tastes amazing, but it can be costly to buy. Not to mention, it can be filled with all sorts of additives and sugars. For that reason, it’s cheaper and healthier to make your own. All you need is ice cold water, a good quality water bottle and some imagination. Here are some of our favourite recipes:
Jalapeno and Watermelon
I bet you’ve never thought of this combo, right? Watermelon is filled with vitamins A and C, and jalapenos contain capsaicin, which makes your body release endorphins. As a result, you’ll feel happier and energised when you drink it, making this spicy combo ideal for the 3pm slump at work.
Lime and Basil
Perhaps more closely associated with a Jo Malone candle, a mixture of fragrant basil and lime will give your body a boost of iron and Vitamin C.
Cinnamon and Apples
This would be a great combination for Autumn! Combining ground cinnamon, cinnamon sticks and apples is a great combination to benefit your immune system. Cinnamon lowers your blood sugar, where apples have been known to help with everything from preventing Alzheimer’s to cancer.
Basil and Strawberries
Strawberries are filled with Vitamin C which has been found to keep wrinkles at bay, whilst basil has plenty of iron, making this combination an all rounder for health inside and out.
Blueberries, mint and lemon
This mixture combines powerful antioxidants with the refreshing taste of mint, making it taste a little bit like sangria.
Slice orange, lemon and lime into rounds to add a tart taste to your water, which is lovely and refreshing.
Pineapple and Mint
Mint is so versatile and it can easily add a refreshing element to your water, whereas pineapple will add sweetness.
Combine six mint sprigs with mango for a refreshing non-alcoholic mojito.
Strawberry and Kiwi
Mix halved strawberries with kiwis and lemons for a tasty summer drink.
