Watermelon And Blueberry Infused Water

Watermelon And Blueberry Infused Water

    Many of you have been hearing about the benefits of drinking infused water on a daily basis.  Since giving up drinking soft drinks last August, I have been experimenting with some refreshing ways of enjoying my daily recommended water intake.  You might be surprised to find out that there are some great reasons why consuming infused water is a good idea.

    Infused water is basically cold water that contains a mixture of herbs, fruits, or vegetables.  Many people swear by it because they claim that it helps them to stay full so they don’t have as much of an appetite for eating junk food.  The fact of the matter is that drinking water is necessary for staying hydrated and maintaining all of our life functions.  It helps to flush toxins from your body and it assists in digestion.

    Many people also use infused water recipes to assist in reaching their weight loss goals.  The reason for this is that it helps you to burn more calories and helps to rehydrate your cells after working out.  It really is one of the easiest things that you could do to improve your overall health.

    One of my favorite infused water recipes contains watermelon and blueberry and it is simply delicious.  Since watermelon is a natural diuretic, it helps your body to expel excess fluid.  Add to that the antioxidant properties of blueberries and you have a winning healthy combination.  I often make it and take it with me to work to enjoy throughout the day.  Not only is it delicious, but it keeps me feeling refreshed and energized.  You must taste it for yourself!  I’m sure you will enjoy it as much as I do!

  1. That looks like a yummy combination. Thanks.

  2. Infused water with things I love so I get the water I need and it has antioxidants. It is such a great idea for me and the kids to drink this when we need a drink.

  3. I’ve never tried making my own infused water before, but I like the idea!! I always love the taste of it when I have it at a hotel spa or even at Yogurtland (they mix in strawberries!).

  4. This looks SO good and so refreshing. I need more infused wear in my life, I don’t drink enough water right now and I know it but it can get soooooo boring drinking just plain water. I will be trying this!

  5. I love infused water! But I never thought to try watermelon. I thought that would have just congealed. Will have to try it.

  6. I am an infused water addict, its the only way I can drink water. I love citrus fruits but sometimes want something different. I will try watermelon and blueberry!

  7. I LOVE infused water so much – I literally drink nothing else. Will definitely be trying this one soon – just need to pick up some watermelon!:)

  8. This sounds like amazing infused water! I love adding flavor to water, makes it much easier to drink more water!

  9. This sounds like a great infused water to try. I tend to just drink water by itself, but it sounds much more exciting when it is infused with fruit! This is defintiely one I need to try.

  10. Yum! That looks SO refreshing! I haven’t tried the watermelon yet but I’ve done blueberry. I wonder if mint would be good in there too!?

  11. Yum, that sounds really amazing. I think this would be perfect for the upcoming summer! Making water a little more “fun” to drink.

  12. I don’t like watermelon but I’d love to try this with just the blueberries! It sounds so yummy.

  13. This looks really tasty! I love fresh food and drinks during the warm months. This would be so refreshing.

  14. I love this. Sometimes, you need a different flavor and the lemon or lime just will not do. This would be great for me to try a new flavor with fresh fruit.

  15. I love infused water so much and fresh at home ones are the best. This is great!!

    This is probably the best tasting flavor I could think of!
