Flavoured waters are a delicious and refreshing no-sugar drink, perfect for hot summer days! Make a jug and leave it out on the counter for everyone to enjoy.
Sometimes the most simple things really are the best. And for some reason they’re overlooked because of their simplicity…like flavoured water. I often drink water with just a lemon slice, but the addition of different fruits and fresh mint takes this simple and thirst quenching drink to the next level!
Kids love it too!
I also love this mixture because my kids love it. I don’t even have to promote it or encourage them to drink it because they just want to. All the fruit and ice in this flavoured water makes them want to keep refilling their glasses…and to a momma who’s always telling my kids to drink more water…this is a very good thing!
Perfect for hot summer days.
Flavoured waters are especially great for hot summer days when everyone wants to reach for sugary drinks…I guarantee, if you leave a jug of flavoured water out on the counter, and easily accessible, it will disappear, cup by cup. So fill a glass and feel good that you did!

Flavoured Water Recipe Tips & Ideas:
- HOW LONG DO THEY LAST? Flavoured waters are always best enjoyed on the day they are made as the fruit is fresh and can be eaten – just scoop some into your glass.
- STORAGE: If you don’t drink the flavoured water right away, keep the container in the fridge for about 1 day, but that’s about all it’s good for. But chances are, your jug will be gone before you know it!
Have a delicious day!
