Fruits and vegetables to use:

I prefer goodies straight from the garden or farmer’s market. You can choose any fruit or veggie your child likes to infuse your water with, but here are a few of my favorites.

  • orange
  • lemon
  • lime
  • grapefruit
  • cucumber
  • mint
  • blueberries
  • strawberries
  • blackberries

Recipe #1: Citrus Infused Water

Slice the orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime into slices. Add the slices to a mason jar and fill to the top with fresh, filtered water. Securely screw on the lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink.

Tip: For last minute drinks, I like to add frozen fruit chunks to water. These are great for impromptu guests or if you forget to make a fresh batch of fruit infused water.
