**PLEASE NOTE** These recipes are for single serving, but you can refill your glass with water as many times as you would like throughout the day. Also, keep in mind that the more you refill your glass with the same fruit, the more diluted and less nutrient-dense the fruit becomes, therefore, if you are looking for more nutrients intake, replace you fruits after 2 or 3 refills.
If you are interested in making a pitcher I recommend using at least a 2-liter container and filling it halfway with the desire ingredients. If you are hosting an event and looking for a refreshing healthy beverage try any of these recipes using sparkling water to add a little pizazz!
