How to Make Fruit Flavored Water


You can make your own fruit flavored waters.  Just about all fruit (except bananas) can be used.


Large pitcher
Filtered Water


Wash and slice up your fruit and place in a large bottle or pitcher.

I use 1/2 gallon mason jars.
You can use lemons, pineapple, strawberries, blackberries or raspberries. Whatever you like.
I used a few mandarin oranges for the water on the right and added a few pieces of fresh spearmint.

And for the strawberry water, I added some frozen strawberries I had in the freezer, a few slices of lemon and a sprig of spearmint.

Place the fruit in a pitcher and press it with a wooden spoon just enough to bruise it and release some of the juices. Don't mash it too much, you just want to release a little of the juice. Add some ice and cover with filtered water.

 When it sets overnight it will develop a stronger flavor and even more color.
