DIY Infused Water

Detox water has been all the rage since

the last half decade or so.

Some say it flushes toxins and some say it helps loses


I say the water tastes darn delicious!

Detox water or infused water is water that has

add ins to it like fruits and sometimes spices the most

popular being cinnamon.

There are loads of people claiming tons of reasons

why we should have detox water.

A couple of years back I had infused water

consistently for about two years before

leaving it behind. Now once again I have started

drinking infused water primarily because it’s a great way of

having a lot of water during the day. Even though I have a good 3 liters in 24 hours but there is no harm in making

the experience fun.


The easiest and most fun infusion is lemon and cucumber which last easily for about 12 hours. Add a sprig of mint to

it and it’s a cool fresh experience.

Of course you can make it lots of fun by adding berries, citrus and even cinnamon to it.

Lemon is great due to its alkaline properties and the vitamin C boost it provides to the body so it’s a must have in my

infused water. Swap lemon with orange or grape fruit and voila you have a variation.

So grab a bottle of water and infuse it with flavors of your choice and keep yourself perked on having water

throughout the day effortlessly!

Do let me know if you have ever tried any infused water and what you thought about it!
