Fruit and Herb Infusions can be filed under the very short list of things that are amazing for you but taste downright decadent. They’re also the perfect accompaniment for warm weather, keeping you refreshed and hydrated - all while boosting immunity, metabolism, energy, and more.
These recipes offer a great alternative to your Perrier habit. Sparkling water is acidic on the pH scale, while water + fresh ingredients are super alkaline. And alkalinity, my friends, equals GLOW.
Infusions are as simple as can be to put together. Health-promoting ingredients are often right at your fingertips, and otherwise all you need is a pitcher of spring water. They work best when left to soak for a few hours, and will last 1-2 days if kept refrigerated - though I doubt your creations will last that long!
Read on for glow-inspiring ingredients that will tipple your taste buds, all while nourishing you, body and soul.

Grapefruit, lemon, and lime are known to kick-start metabolism, and make this a go-to if you’re hoping to shed a few pounds. The mint gives it a fresh, crisp taste; the jalapeño is an optional ingredient that kicks everything up a notch on the calorie burning scale!
