10 Great Ways to Add Flavour to Water


We know that soft drinks are bad for us – but what we perhaps don’t realise – or conveniently dont consider is that many ‘healthy’ juices are also bad for us – loaded with sugar or sweeteners and preservatives. The more you look at the labels – the more you realise how common these ingredients are. Yet the healthy alternative – drinking water – doesn’t have nearly the same appeal.   Replacing sweetened drinks with plain water can be a shock to the senses at first – especially if you’ve grown accustomed to the sweetened flavour. Here are a few of our favourite recipes to perk up the flavour and help replace the sugar dependence.

Whats more – drinks containing fruits such as apples, strawberries, oranges, limes and grapefruits – all contain small amounts of pectin – which is itself an appetite suppressant.

Here are Some Great Ways to Add some Flavour to Perk up Your Drinking Water

  4. Grapefruit
  5. Pineapple and ginger
  6. Cucumber and lemon grass
  7. Cantaloupe Melon

  9. Lemon and Mint: A simple glass of water with a fresh slice of lemon is a recipe for successful weight loss because the pectin in lemons helps reduce food cravings.
