Drinking plain ole water has never really been a problem for me—except when I was pregnant. I just couldn’t stomach plain water for almost my entire pregnancy. Before that, I had always laughed at people that said they didn’t like “the taste” of water. What taste!? Water is tasteless! And then I became pregnant, had the morning sickness from hell, and I totally got it. Water tasted terrible for all 42 weeks I was pregnant. My savior during that time? Infused waters!
Now, even though I’m back to enjoying plain (ice cold, thankyouverymuch) water, I still love the treat of some fruit-infused water. It just feels so refreshing, summery, and let’s be honest, fun! Opening up the fridge to see a beautiful pitcher of infused water just makes me want to drink more. When the healthy choice is also the fun choice, it’s a lot easier to make a good-for-you decision.
Honestly, you can put just about whatever fruit you like into a pitcher of water and enjoy the mild, light flavor, but I think it’s so much more fun (and beautiful!) to do tasty combinations of fruits and herbs. I thought I’d show you eight of my favorite combinations today. But before we dig in, a few notes about infused waters:
