We’re headed into the home stretch of summer here and it seems like the days are getting hotter and hotter versus showing signs of cooling down. I’m still trying to focus on getting in plenty of water each and especially on the days when I spend a lot of time outside or get dragged to boot camp by my neighbor. One of my newest favorites (besides cucumber lemon thyme) is pineapple ginger infused water.
A lot of times, I call this spa water because it reminds of the type of water they serve when I go to the spa for a massage or pedicure. Some people prefer to call it detox water and that fits as well. Basically, call it whatever you want but you’ll love drinking it so it won’t matter what the name is.
There is no real “recipe” here because you can kind of just toss items into the pitcher of water and add more or less to suit your taste.
Pineapple Ginger Infused Water Ingredients:
Fresh ginger, peeled and cut into chunks
Let’s Make It:
1) Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Refrigerate for at least 4 hours.
If you have trouble finding fresh pineapple, you can substitute the canned chunks packed in juice. Just drain them first.
It sounds so simple but you will be amazed at how much adding a little bit of flavor to water makes it so much easier to drink. I can seriously double my water intake if I have something like versus plain water. Of course, I’m using all natural and healthy ingredients to add flavor so I don’t have to worry about major calorie, sugar or fat increases.
