Our bodies need at least 2 liters of water every day. Not only to prevent dehydration, but also to dispose of toxins through sweat and urine. Infused water or commonly called infusion water is water that is given pieces of fruit or herbal foliage so as to give flavor to the water and certainly give added value to health. Each mix also has different properties for health. Come on, start making it!
How to make Infused Water
- Make sure the fruit or leaves that we will use are ripe and fresh. Usually in raw fruits there are still many nutrients that have not been formed, this will reduce its efficacy.
- Clean wash the fruit and leaves.
- Start putting the fruit and leaves in the water. Half a liter of water can be filled with 10-15 thin pieces of fruit. Then store in the fridge and let stand for 6-12 hours to get the starch out. Because technically, the fruit and foliage mixed with water for infused water should be silenced for a few hours until the cider comes out and the water will change its taste.
- Fruit and foliage that have been used for infused water can be used once again. Maximum is twice the usage. If stored in the refrigerator, infused water can last up to 2-5 days.
