There are recipes and tips and videos and how to’s and even e Books you can buy and download that will teach you the secret and mystical way to make vitamin and flavored waters.
It isn’t hard, there is not big grand secret. In fact, most people have already done this at one time or another.
Just plain old water or whatever kind of water you want to use.
Any type you happen to like. You can use fresh or even frozen will do just fine.
Herbs are an amazing way to add a little something extra, but they do need to be fresh.
Put your ingredient together, let steep for however long it takes (that will depend on whatever it was you are using as flavoring). Then drink.
Now the real trick is knowing what to put in your water to produce the results that you want.
If you are looking for a pick-me-up in the middle of the afternoon, then you want something that has some stimulating properties.
So maybe a fruit and an herb from the mint family. Like lemon and mint or Pineapple and basil. Something to replenish you after a workout? Then you may want something with a little more substance, like fruit, ginger and honey.
If you know how to get the most out of your fruit or the herb you are using, you will have mastered the art of flavoring your water. Fruits are easy, just cut up and put in the water. Herbs on the other hand will need to be smashed with a spoon or chopped to release the flavors.
Make up your own combinations and enjoy!
