Sometimes a smoothie is a little too heavy, but plain old water is just… a little too plain. Well, water doesn’t have to be plain! With a little bit of a planning ahead, you can make your very own ultra-delicious infused water. Of course, you can use pretty much whatever ingredients you like. But here’s a recipe that’s been tried and tested.

Not only is this infused water lovely to drink, but it’s full of antoxidants from the apples and lemons, it has the anti-inflammatory benefits of ginger, as well as all sorts of wonderful nutrients. And with ginger and lemon, it’s a great morning or after-dinner drink to help with digestion.

Ingredients
  • 1/2 lemon (medium, peeled and cut into thin slices)
  • 2 apples (cut into thin slices)
  • 1/8 cup lemon juice (fresh, get juice from the other half of the lemon)
  • 2 inch ginger (peeled and cut into slices or 1 drop ginger essential oil)
  • 1/2 tsp stevia (optional)
  • 8 cups purified water (spring water)

  1. Place lemon and apple slices, lemon juice, ginger slices or ginger oil, and liquid stevia in the bottom of the glass jar and pour water on top. Stir to mix well. Cover jar with lid and place in the refrigerator to infuse for 2-3 hours or preferably overnight. If you don’t peel the lemon slices initially please remove the peel from the slices after infusing for 1 hour or your water will be bitter.
  2. After the water infuses you can enjoy it! You can leave the fruits in the infused water for up to 3-4 days before you need to strain them out of the water. On the second day, I like to add more water and one more drop of ginger essential oil in once I drink up the first batch. The fruit flavor is not as strong but it still is very refreshing. After 3-4 days you can compost the fruit and ginger pieces. Enjoy!
