Often called “spa water,” infused waters are a quick and easy way to make drinking your 8 glasses a day a tad more exciting. Adding flavours, nutrients, and a bit of colour to your water is as refreshing as it is simple!

What Should I Use to Infuse My Water?

Fresh fruits, vegetables and herbs are great options to add flavours to your water. When possible, opt for local in-season fruits and veggies. Simply allow your fruits to float in your glass or pitcher or use an infusion bottle or pitcher if you have one on hand!

Can I Eat the Fruits in My Glass?

Absolutely! However, you will most likely be disappointed. Expect something more watery than flavourful—the water will take on the flavour of the fruit whilst the fruit will take on more water.

How Long Should You Keep Infusions?

In the refrigerator, you can keep infused water for approximately 48 hours. Typically, infusions are their best 2 to 4 hours after they’ve been made or overnight. Some ingredients—like rosemary—last far longer than others.

Is Drinking Infused Water Healthy?

In short, yes. Staying hydrated and ensuring your intake of water is sufficient is incredibly important. If adding fruits, herbs and veggies to your water helps you drink more—it’s healthy! Drinking water increases your metabolism, provides your body with extra energy, helps prevent muscle cramps, improves your judgment and mood, prevents headaches, improves the look and feel of skin and keeps your body healthy and happy!
