Strawberry Mint Infused Water

Did you know the human body is about 65% water? Did you also know that we lose around 2 to 2.5 litres of water from our bodies per day? All of a sudden drinking 8 glasses of water doesn’t sound so bad, does it? But water’s soooo boring, you say. I’m here to tell you it doesn’t have to be! It’s the most thirst quenching thing ever after a hard workout, but water isn’t always the first thing we grab when we’re rushing throughout the day (hi, large lattes!).Infusing fruit and herbs make water a bit more interesting, and in this case strawberries infuse the water with a hint of berry goodness, and the mint gives it a refreshing flavour – perfect for summer.You’ll need: 3 or 4 large strawberries (thoroughly washed), a handful of mint leaves (throughly washed also), and water of course! Slice strawberries into wedges and rip up your mint leaves – place both ingredients into a glass jug. Fill with cold water, and let it sit in the fridge for 3-4 hours, or overnight. The water will turn a light pink hue and strawberries will float to the bottom. It’s good to go at this point, and ready to drink! happy sipping!
