What is Infused Water?
Infused water is simply water that has been combined with fruits and/or vegetables and herbs so that it gains some of the flavor and nutrition from the additions. It's also called detox water because it can help your body release toxins.
How to Make It
It's easy to make your own flavored water at home, you don't need any fancy appliances, just a few ingredients and a water bottle. You can squeeze the juice from your fruits for a stronger flavor or slice them and add to cold or room temperature water.
