Fruit Infused Waters You’ll Love
Posted on 08 April 2015
I was surprised to find out that there are people that don’t like the “bland” taste of water. Since I grew up strictly on water, I didn’t know any different. Sodas and sugar loaded drinks, on the other hand, seemed so repulsive to me. Some people use syrups or flavor drops to add a taste of fruit to their water. But the truth is, we don’t really know what kind of artificial ingredients are in those additives. So, whether you already drink water religiously or for those of you that are trying to get into the habit of drinking more water here is a list of fruit infused waters you’ll love!
