Water Coolers

pitcher with fruit and water

There are many things you can add to water to make it more exciting to drink.  Here are just a few:

Ginger – If you like spices, ginger is a great way to add a “zing” to your water.

Citrus – Freeze small citrus fruits in  cube trays and then put the ice cubes in water for flavor.  The water produced will be infused with Vitamin C.

Herbs – Mint, lemongrass, and parsley are great for adding aroma and a hint of green to your water. To release the flavor, crush the plants a little bit before placing them into your water.

Cucumber – Fill a water dispenser with cucumber slices.  The water dispensed will be refreshing and smell a bit like cucumber.

Berries – Blueberries and strawberries have distinct flavors. Cut or crush a few of the berries into your water for a tasty drink.

Salt – For those fitness buffs, energy drinks with electrolytes are prime examples of liquids with salt.  Electrolytes are ions that can be found in table salt. Adding a little bit of salt to water helps the body absorb the liquid more quickly, quenches the thirst and replenishes salt during workouts (body loses salt through sweat.)

Since our bodies require water daily, why not make it more flavorful.
