Hydration with a Boost

If you have a hard time remembering to drink enough water every day, infusing it with some extra flavor is a great way to make hydration more interesting. Not only does the addition of fruits and vegetables add extra taste, it also adds nutrition and health benefits making it a great alternative to soda and other sugary drinks!

The best part? It’s so easy and the possibilities are endless! You can infuse water in just about anything you already have, whether it’s a pitcher, mason jar, cup, or an infuser water bottle to take on the go. You can even try them with sparkling water for an elegant summer party beverage.
