The basil is bursting with flavor in this Strawberry Basil Blueberry-Infused water. It is so refreshing!
Bruise the basil with the end of a wooden spoon in a pitcher or 1/2 gallon Mason jar. sniff* sniff*
Umm good! Now put in the ice, fill with water, then toss in several rinsed strawberries with the tops removed.
Add rinsed blueberries! Go organic if you can! It’s gorgeous, delicious and motivates me to drink more water!
This blend isn’t just for hydration! Strawberries, blueberries and basil are loaded with health benefits!
Strawberries – Vitamin C, folates, potassium, fiber, antioxidants
Blueberries – Vitamin K (to aid with blood-clotting), antioxidants that aid with cognition (memory!), help reduce cholesterol, reduce glucose by aiding the body’s insulin, help vision and prevent cancer! WOW!!! Eat the berries! Frozen berries are awesome, too!
Basil – Has many of the same health benefits as strawberries and blueberries, but it also has Omega-3 Fatty Acids. Mega-metabolism boosters.
So, pitch the diet soda. Who needs chemicals and caffeine???
Sip, refresh, refill!
