Drinking water is one of the best things you can do for your body, but 64+ ounces per day can be boring and tedious, especially for those who claim they don’t like the taste of water! In order to make drinking water more fun, I created this infusion recipe that is hydrating, nutritious, and has just the right amount of sweetness. This antioxidant mixture of blueberries, raspberries and orange naturally helps the body detoxify. For a stronger flavor, muddle the berries or squeeze a couple orange slices before soaking. Consider this recipe a starting off point. You can use any mixture of herbs and fruits to please your taste buds!
