Drinking a lot of water is the best way to keep your body healthy - This Orange and Raspberry fruit water is delicious and will help you stay hydrated during the day!
Water makes up a significant fraction of the human body, so drinking at least 8-10 glasses per day is important to maintain overall good health.
Staying well-hydrated throughout the day also keeps your skin moisturized, and your hair strong and fresh. All the good extra reasons why you should drink more water!
I honestly struggle with drinking water over the day, but I love drinking fruit water because it tastes delicious and it kind of makes it more of a treat.
This week I've started drinking this new orange and raspberry fruit water.
It’s super refreshing and bursts with tangy flavours, not to mention it tastes absolutely amazing!
How To Make Fruit Water
Making your own fruit water couldn't be easier.
For this raspberry and orange fruit water, you only need the peel of a lime, a sliced orange ( make sure they’re both unwaxed and organic), 8-10 raspberries and of course water.
Add all the ingredients into a water bottle, fill it up with cold water and let the ingredients infuse for at least two hours.
Orange and raspberry is a fantastic flavour combo: sweet & tangy at the same time, it's a real treat to drink.
Plus, both these fruits contain tons of vitamin C & A and antioxidants.
Lime peel is a great addition (avoid the bitter white part), gives a refreshing and extra zesty flavour to this detox water, and extra health benefits too.
Lemons and limes protect you from infections, thanks to their antioxidant, disinfectant and antibiotic properties.
Give this orange and raspberry fruit water a try, it tastes delicious and will help you stay hydrated during the day.
Can You Make Fruit Water In Advance?
Yes! You can make the mix the night before, and have it ready to drink the next morning. It's actually quite convenient this way.
I usually drink half a bottle of detox water first thing when I wake up and finish the rest during the morning.
Make sure you don’t reuse the ingredients, but you can, of course, eat the fruit after if you like.
