Fresh Filtered Water on Tap

Four filtered water recipes perfect for winter

Winter. Colder months and shorter days. This season often triggers many of us to retreat indoors for a few months. It’s also a time where there always seems to be a bit more sickness around. Say hello to colds and sore throats.

WFA-winter-colds

Drinking heaps of water may not be at the top of your mind but you want to stay healthy you’ll need to keep up with the magic eight glasses a day.

If you are looking for some filtered water inspiration to get away from plain filtered water, we’ve teamed up with Made by Fressko who have some great recipes to try with your WFA inline water filter. Some of these are just perfect for the winter months because as well as tasting great, they also have some awesome health benefits.

Rose-Thyme-waterRose & Thyme Water for Sore Throats and Mood Boosting

Thyme isn’t always on top of everyone’s list but it’s got some great proven health benefits, especially during the winter months. Thyme is great for sore throats and for lowering blood pressure and cholesterol levels. Thyme contains carvacrol which has mood boosting effects too. Always good if you’re feeling the winter blues.

Rose petal water goes right back to Cleopatra and Ancient Egypt and it’s thought to contain heaps of vitamins. Ancient Egyptians drank rose water for great skin, helping with sore throats and to fight depression.

You’ll need:

  • 4 Rose buds. Dried or Fresh
  • 1 Small handful of fresh thyme sprigs
  • 1 tsp Honey ( optional )

Method

Add rose and thyme ( and honey, if using ) to flask.
Pop in the short filter (supplied by Fressko) and fill flask with filtered water.
Allow 5 minutes to infuse. Enjoy.

WFA-fressko-collabApple and Cinnamon Water for an Immunity Booster

This infused water recipe is full of flavour and boasts the health benefits of Cinnamon. Cinnamon is another spice that goes back to Ancient Egypt. It’s loaded with antioxidants, boasts anti-inflammatory properties and is thought to lower blood sugar levels. This one is a perfect winter immunity booster.

You’ll need:

  • 1/2 Red Lady Apple, sliced
  • 2 x Cinnamon Sticks, broken
  • Filtered water to fill

Method

Add the sliced apple and cinnamon to the flask.
Pop in the short filter (supplied by Fressko)
Fill with filtered water.
Allow to infuse.

Passionfruit-drinkPassion Fruit Cocktail or Mocktail

If you are looking for a fun twist on traditional cocktails why not try this passion fruit drink with filtered water. You can add a dash of vodka or coconut liqueur as a classy cocktail or just make it as a healthy mocktail.

Passionfruit is a fruit full of Vitamin C and so packed full of antioxidants to boost your immunity.

It also has iron which increases haemoglobin in red blood cells. There’s also Vitamins B6 and B3 to help regulate thyroid activity.

You’ll need:

  • The pulp from two passion fruits
  • Filtered Water
  • Handful of Mint ( torn )
  • Ice

Method

Scoop the pulp from two passion fruits
Tear up a handful of fresh mint
Add to flask
Fill with filtered water and ice
Allow to infuse.

For another handy tip, fill your ice trays with filtered water straight from your inline water filter to make sure all your drinks taste great.

WFA-cold-brew-coffee12 hr cold coffee recipe

Ok so this one isn’t strictly a health recipe but who doesn’t love coffee? And did you know that using filtered water to make your coffee makes all the difference to the taste! This is a great recipe for all the coffee lovers out there.

You’ll need:

  • 2 1/2 tablespoons Freshly Ground Coffee (should be the consistency of raw sugar)
  • 250ml Cold Filtered Water
  • 300ml Jar
  • Fressko flask & top tea infuser attachment.
  • 1 tsp maple syrup

Method

Add ground coffee and cold water to the jar. Agitate or lightly stir the water making sure all grounds are wet. Place in fridge for 12hrs or up to 24hrs for strong coffee.
Remove from fridge and strain into your Fressko flask using the top tea infuser attachment to sieve or catch any ground coffee as you pour.

Once strained remove tea infuser attachment as discard coffee grounds. Add one teaspoon of organic maple syrup to sweeten, attached lid, agitate and enjoy.
