What you'll need:
- 1/2 cup of blueberries
- 1 whole kiwi
- 10-15 mint leaves
- 24-32 oz. of water
- 1 small splash of coconut water
So here's how I make my infused water. First, I add in my fruit. I started with my blueberries, then added kiwis, then my mint leaves, and finally a layer of ice cubes (about 1/2 a cup worth).
Next I added in my water to my current "jar of fruit." This is a 32 oz. jar. However, the fruit takes up a bit of the volume, so the amount of water I actually added was probably around 24 oz. or so. Then I added a splash of coconut water and stirred the drink with a small spoon.
Lastly, I garnished each drink with an additional slice of kiwi and of course a paper straw - which I use for ALL of my drinks and smoothies :)
Because I wanted to drink my water right away, I mashed my blueberries a little bit with a wooden spoon so the antioxidants and rich flavor could infuse into the water more quickly. Another option is always to just leave your drink(s) in the refrigerator for a few hours or even overnight to get that sweet, flavorful taste.
