Lemon and lime infused water

Sharing is caring!

Late to the fruit infused water trend but… I admit, I thought it was a fad with all the big detox claims and clean living benefits being hyped up enormously….

I’m not going to pretend that I’ve started drinking fruit water infusions to be ‘healthy’ or that I’ve ditched coffee, but, what I have done is started to mix up a few of these nice fruit water infusions and keep them in the fridge and do you know what? They taste GOOD!

Main benefit to me is I’m drinking much more water, that makes me feel more alert and less sluggish and so that’s got to be a good thing, right?
