5 More Fruit and Herb Waters

 We are sure enjoying the Fruit and Herb Waters we have been making lately. The last post was:

4 Great Fruit and Herb Waters (this is a link)

 After trying these 4 fruit and herb waters... and enjoying them... I kept experimenting and came up with 5 more. Here are the five.............

 Peach, Ginger and Basil Water....  We really enjoyed this one and they loved eating the peaches out of the drink after it was done also. 

 Grapefruit, Tumeric and Dill Water............ This one was loved by several in the family. Though I loved the smell of this water, it was a bit strong for one of our daughters and for me, but it was good. My husband LOVED this one. I was glad he did since the tumeric in it (those pieces that look like carrot slices) are great for inflammation and he is needing that for his knee.

I did like the dill.... I love dill and eat it raw.... and love the young seeds raw also, so I plan to try dill in another water mix to find one that I like better.  🙂

 Kiwi, Ginger and Basil.... this one tasted good, but we found it is better not to let this one sit as long. It tastes better when used soon.

 Lemon and Lavender.....  I am not fond of the taste lavender, so was a bit skeptical on this one, but I have fresh lavender and wanted to try it... and it sounded good with lemon. This was really good... such a fresh taste and the lavender was light, not heavy. We all really liked this one. If you love the taste of lavender already, you could add a lot more of it. 

 Cherry and Thyme.... this was a last minute idea.... I had found cherries on sale and they are a pretty color and loved by the family, so I decided to try it. I haven't used thyme yet for the waters, so I put thyme with it. It was good, but next time I would put more cherries in it. My husband loved this one too.

I think he liked most of the waters and loved a lot of them. I am so glad I can make these for him... he has a bit of an aversion to drinking a lot of plain water and he is trying to stay away from sugary drinks.

I really do like the fruit and herb waters. I like that we can have water with flavor sometimes... (this is REALLY big to my husband!)... and that we can get extra nutrition. There is such a variety of possibilities too.  Have you been enjoying such waters? Are you making your own? Have you come up with a combination you really like? I would love to hear from you in the comments. I hope you have a great week.

  1. Wow...they all sound so great!

    I would love for you to share this with my Facebook Group for recipes, crafts, tips, and tricks:

    Thanks for joining Cooking and Crafting with J & J!

    1. Lots of fresh tasting water ideas. :) Thank you for visiting.

  2. They look so refreshing! I never knew what fresh turmeric looked like. We love the lavender lemonade we buy from a soda fountain, so I am sure the lavender and lemon water was tasty.

    1. I just recently learned what fresh tumeric looks like... I have been trying to find it and finally found it in a Sprouts, though not all of the Sprouts stores had it. I would love to try growing it... and will try that as a future project, I think. We did enjoy the lavender and lemon water... even the guys did and they did NOT expect to. :)

  3. I love how pretty they are. I think I'm going to have a special "water bar" at my next gathering. Who could resist one of these?

    1. What a wonderful idea! With pretty and clear pitchers, such a selection would be a feast for the eyes and the taste buds, as well as for health. :)

  4. WOw, you have some really great recipes here! I think I'll try the lavender lemon one!


    1. Thank you... I hope you like it as much as we do. :)
