Tasty detox water recipes are just the ticket to making the most out of each day

Let’s face it, we don’t drink enough water. Tap water can be bland and bottled water burns a hole in our pockets. With all the stresses going on right now, introducing tasty detox water recipes into our daily life using filtered tap water is just the ticket to ward off the winter blues, refresh our minds and bodies and get the most out of each day.

Our bodies are 55%-60% water, our brains contain nearly 75% water, and our heart, liver and kidneys are all 80% or more made up of water. That is a big reliance on water for us to function at our very best. The issue is, we don’t always drink enough water to keep ourselves hydrated at the optimum level.

So, to solve this problem, the team at Water Filters Australia got together and shared their favourite infused water drinks that go a long way toward restoring the motivation to drink more water on a daily basis.

For all the infused ideas, use a large water jug with around 5 cups of filtered water from the tap and add around 1 cup of ice cubes.

Strawberry, basil and lemon

  • ½ cup of strawberries, fresh or frozen, stemmed and sliced
  • 5 large fresh basil leaves, torn and tossed in
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced

Sweet and sour flavour with the balance of fresh basil – rejuvenating.

Honeydew melon, cucumber and mint

  • ½ cup of honeydew cubes
  • 1 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 10-12 fresh mint leaves, torn and tossed in

This one is all about freshness and leaves a great minty taste in the mouth.

Blueberry, lemon and rosemary

  • ½ punnet of blueberries
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 4 sprigs of fresh rosemary

More savoury than sweet – rehydrating and power packed.

Watermelon, kiwi and lime

  • 1 cup of watermelon cubes
  • 1 kiwi, sliced into circles
  • 1 lime, sliced into circles

Sweet with a touch of sour balanced with the kiwi – great before bed.

Use filtered water to maximise the taste of the fruit and the herbs

Using filtered water to mix with the fruit and herbs is the best way to really enjoy the flavour of these infusions. The filter removes excess chlorine and other contaminants that make tap water taste metallic and bland. For added results, leave the water overnight in the fridge, allowing time for the fruit and herbs’ natural perfume and extracts to fully infuse with the filtered water for maximum enjoyment.

Drinking plain filtered water straight from the tap is an excellent way to give our bodies the hydration they need. Adding fruits and herbs to the filtered water is a next level water experience that not only rehydrates but adds that extra bit of taste sensation.

Drinking water should never be a chore, and adding a water filter system to your kitchen sink ensures the water at home is safe, free of odours and tastes as fresh water should.
