9 Fruits and Vegetables to Add to Water ...

When you are drinking 8 glasses of water a day, you might want to consider these fruits and vegetables to add to water and spice things up a bit. We all need to drink water everyday, but sometimes that can get boring. These fruits and vegetables to add to water are the perfect way to take you hydration up a notch and keep you hydrated with tons of flavor.

1. Lemons

Of all of the fruits and vegetables to add to water, this is probably the most popular. It gets served in restaurants for heaven’s sake. There is something so refreshing about drinking water that has just spritzes of lemon in it. You get the refreshing feel of lemonade, without all the calories and sugar.

2. Cucumbers

While not many other vegetables are that popular to throw in water, cucumbers are a must for anyone looking to spice up their water. This is one of the subtler water infusers, but it still makes for quite a refreshing drink. Tip for adding cucumbers: cut the slices very thin rather than having large chunks of cucumber floating around your drink.

3. Grapefruit

I am surprised not more people add grapefruit to their water. It is hugely popular among those who diet because it is low in calories but high in acidity. By adding it to your water, you get the acidic taste of grapefruit, but on a much lower level.

4. Orange

Oranges are similar to grapefruit but have a sweeter taste and can brighten up your water. It gives you a similar feeling of drinking orange juice but without all of the sugar and a lighter, more infused taste.

5. Strawberries

It sweetens your water while still keeping you feeling refreshed. If you like strawberries in your smoothies, desserts, or just in a bowl, you will love them in your water. Strawberries are my favorite fruits out there and when I eventually added them to my water, I fell in love.

6. Mint

Technically mint it is an herb, but you definitely should consider adding it to your water. This is perfect for the summer when you need an extra burst of refreshment but are not a huge fan of sweet drinks.

7. Raspberries

If you are a fan of raspberries, replace ice in your water with frozen berries. Throw them in your water bottle to keep it cold and give you a kick of raspberries in every sip.

8. Limes

Limes are not as popular to add to water as lemons are, but that doesn't mean they aren't great to add flavor to your water. They give you that same citrus taste, but the flavor isn't as aggressive. You can even mix and match with lemons to get a fun lemon-lime taste.

9. Grapes

If you want to add a tiny splash of grapes to your water, try freezing grapes in ice cubes and throwing them in your water bottle. Their taste will become more prominent as the ice melts and you will have a fruity grape drink to enjoy all day long.

There are so many fruits and vegetables to add to water, you can have a different flavor everyday. You can even mix and match these to get even more flavor in your water. What did you think of these fruits and vegetables to add to your water? What else do you like to add to your water? Do you prefer plain water or water with added flavor?
