HOW TO: Make Fruit and Vegetable Infused Water in Mason JarsMonday, June 04, 2012
I have a serious LOVE for Mason Jars so when I saw this post I had to SHARE!
Save your money and the environment this year by making homemade refreshing fruit-infused water for the kiddos. By making these beverages in mason jars, you can store a lot of them in the fridge and your child can easily grab a fruit-infused cooler anytime. They aren't filled with sugar like fruit juice, but still provide enough flavor to please kids.
What you will need:
- Fresh fruit, vegetables and herbs
- Mason Jars
- Reusable Straws
Recipe #1: Citrus Infused Water
Slice the orange, grapefruit, lemon and lime into slices. Add the slices to a mason jar and fill to the top with fresh, filtered water. Securely screw on the lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink
Recipes #2: Cucumber-Mint Infused Water
Slice the cucumber into slices and rinse the mint leaves. Add the slices and mint leaves to a mason jar and fill to the top with fresh, filtered water. Securely screw on the lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink.
Recipe #3: Berry Infused Water
Add the fresh, rinsed berries to a mason jar. Fill to the top with fresh, filtered water and securely screw on the lid and store in the refrigerator until ready to drink.
