“It’s hot out there.” I hear it all day around me. No kidding – but there isn’t much we can do about it, except keeping cool and drink plenty of water. However, even though I put a big jar of water next to me, I get tired of it or simply forget to drink. I have found fruit infused water to be an ideal way to keep myself drinking.
It’s also perfect for all sorts of occasion. No matter if you have a party with friends at home, want to keep your kids hydrated or just want to drink it throughout the day in the office. Fruit infused water is a simple way to spice up your day in a fruity fashion. Leave all combinations to infuse for a few hours if you can to get a better result. Here are a few ideas for your fruit infused water revolution.
1. Lime Slices and Basil
Extremely easy to prepare and truly energising when cold, this fruit infused water combination is perfect for your office day. Get a big jar of water, slice some lemon and add it together with fresh basil leaves to the jar. Tip – get a basil plant, so you get fresh leaves every day. They are easy to take care of and fit into every kitchen. This combo also will boost your vitamin C and iron intake.
2. Jalapeño and Watermelon Water
It might seem like an unusual combination, but this fruit infused water will give you strength and happiness. The watermelon is filled with vitamin A and C, while the spicy jalapeños has capsaicin that releases endorphins in your body. The latter is also known as the happiness hormone. Ask any private chef in Singapore – they’ll confirm it.
3. Orange and Mint
Same as number 1 above – slice them up and throw it into the jar. Orange is a great source of vitamin C and will give you plenty of energy for your day. Staying healthy isn’t so difficult – how about healthy culinary feast for the weekend?

Cucumber has plenty of health benefits – it helps cancer prevention, is good for your skin and even aids in weights loss and helps with digestion. A true health bomb – just like this one here.
5. Apple and Cinnamon
Get a bag of cinnamon sticks and apples and you are ready to go for a few weeks. You can use both red and green apple slices for this fruit infused water mix. Apple isn’t just refreshing, but also keeps your cholesterol in check.
