Fruit infused water - add some flavour to your water!
Give your water a blast of flavour with a Tea and Water Infuser! Plain water can be dull and the sugar content of dilute squash is sky high - so add fresh fruit to your water to give it some flavour. This will not only keep you hydrated, but the natural fruit will help with detoxification and boost your energy levels ready for the summer!
Water makes up 45% - 75% percent of your body weight, and the average person needs around 1.5L - 2L of water each day to function effectively. On busy, warm days it can be easy to skip a drink or two, but staying hydrated will help to keep fatigue, headaches and dry skin at bay.
Symptoms of dehydration:
- Fatigue or feeling weak
- Dry lips and a dry mouth
- Muscle cramps
Keep an eye out for these symptoms and get topped up with fluids if you feel light-headed or start to notice your lips drying out. If you are planning a picnic in the park or a day on the beach, you can use the Water Infuser to make your own fruity refreshment, and the metal flask will keep everything cool until you’re ready to enjoy your drink.
Fruit and water - a match made in heaven!
Fruit provides essential vitamins and minerals required to keep up with our busy and hectic lifestyles. Rich in antioxidants, eating your ‘5-a-day’ will help to keep you healthy and energised, and as fruit is high in vitamin C, it also helps to keep illness at bay.
A few recipes:
Here are a couple of recipes that combine our Gardening Angel’s favourite fruits with water to make sure we keep hydrated during the hot (fingers crossed) summer!
Super Sharp: lemon, orange and grapefruit
These fruits are extra high in vitamin C, which helps to build up your immune system and reduce heartburn! We add a big chunk of each fruit (de-piped) to the Water Infuser, along with some water and enjoy this citrusy, tangy treat at room temperature.
Berry Blast: strawberry, raspberry and blueberry
Add a couple of chopped strawberries, raspberries and blueberries to the chamber of the Water Infuser, giving them a twist and crush releases the flavour. We add cold water to the flask section and let the flavours infuse. These berries are especially good for cardio vascular health, digestion and maintaining a healthy blood sugar level.
