Infused water is a type of water that includes fruits, vegetables, and herbs that are infused in the water for added flavor. It is easy to make and is a great way to use produce without actually eating it. The following infused water recipes are great for losing weight and burning more fat.

Apple and Cinnamon

Both apple sand cinnamon are good ingredients to use when you want to burn more fat. Cold water also happens to be good for burning fat and calories and increasing your energy levels throughout the day. So make this infused water the night before, keep the pitcher in the fridge, and you will be ready to turn yourself into a fat-burning machine with delicious water. All you need to do is add some sliced apples to the bottom of the pitcher, being sure no seeds are present, then one cinnamon stick. This is much better than powdered sugar for water so it doesn’t cause clogs or clumps in the water. Let it sit overnight with filtered water and that’s it!

Berry and Lemon

For this infused water, you can use any berries you want. Most berries are good for burning fat and contain a lot of antioxidants. Both blueberries and strawberries also happen to be superfoods, which is even better for you. You can also try other types of berries, like raspberries and blackberries. To the berries at the bottom of the pitcher, add some lemon slices as well for more detox potential. Fill it with filtered water and leave in the fridge overnight. You can also add some ice on top of the fruit to release the flavors and keep the water nice and cold.

Watermelon and Mint

Many infused waters also contain herbs, which provide more flavor and nutrients at the same time. This infused water is super simple and tastes mostly like the watermelon slices you add, but you are also going to have some mint in there. Try to use a seedless watermelon, and use slices that don’t have a lot of rind on them. This allows you to get as much fruit flavor as possible. Add some muddled mint at the bottom, cover with ice, then fill with water. 

When making your infused water, try to use fresh and organic fruit whenever possible. You can also add slices of vegetables and herbs as needed for more nutrients and added flavor.

Namaste,
