Pinterest Thursday - Flavored Waters


I'm always looking for more ways to drink more water. I'm pretty addicted to sparkling water (Cascade Fresh Lime from Trader Joe's) but sometimes I run out and can't get to the store to get more. Plain tap water is pretty good in those times but flavored water is even better! This pin caught my eye because I happened to have all the ingredients in my fridge and they needed to be used up. 

Flavored Water Ingredients

I filled one jar with a sliced up orange, lemon and lime. The other jar with frozen blueberries, half a sliced lime and a sliced lemon. 

Flavored Water Muddle

Then because I don't have a proper muddler (which is hard to believe considering just how stocked my kitchen is from my previous job), I used a wooden spoon to muddle the fruit a bit before adding ice to the top of the jar. 

Flavored Water Mixed

I shook the jars around a bit and put on the lids. I let them sit overnight in the fridge and in the morning I had delicious flavored water without any sugar (other than the natural fruit sugars) or other unnecessary ingredients. 

I'm almost tempted to give up my sparkling water just for these flavored waters. Nah, I don't think I'll be doing that anytime soon. I like the carbonation too much. However, these waters are a great alternative.
