Flavored Juices at Home

Thirsty time ???? Sometimes only water may not help to regain  your energy , infused water is one of the  easiest  and natural way which  is more nutritious , healthy  & refreshes  you at the same time .
 Flavored water is less in calories and in good in vitamins of the fruits , so, opt these juices rather than going for any sodas or fruit juices .
Simply select any fresh fruit, herbs or spices you like to add to turn plain water into delicious flavored water  (except banana as it may not aid for the preparation)  .

You can pretty much come up with your own recipes and play around the ingredients to quench your thirst.

Mosambi (Sweet Lime ) Ginger Water  :

Mosambi 1
Ginger 1 table spoon / Pepper Powder

Raspberry  (Any berries )& Pineapple Water:

Rasp berry  1/2 cup
Pineapple chunks 1/2 cup

Pineapple , Mint & Sugarcane water:

Pineapple chunks  1/2 cup
Sugar cane chunks 1/2 cup
Mint 1/4 cup 

Cucumber Minty Lime :

Cucumber 1/2 sliced
Mint  1/4 cup fresh leaves
Lime 1/2 sliced (you can take any of the citrus fruit as a substitute )

Watermelon Mint:

Water melon cubes 1 cup
Mint 1/4 cup fresh leaves
pepper powder (optional)

Pineapple & Orange with Ginger:

Lime 1/2 sliced
Pineapple cubes 1 cup
Ginger 1 table spoon

You will need:::

1-quart jars
Wooden Spoon / Stomper


Agave or another sweetener (added in  small quantities )
Pepper Powder

Procedure :
I have prepared all these combinations and showing you the first combination (Mosambi &ginger water ,I have added a pinch of pepper powder too )

  • Choose which recipe you're making

  • Place the fruit, herbs, and/or spices in the bottom of one of the glass jars / a steel vessel , and muddle with a wooden spoon. (That basically means mash up the fruit in the bottom of the jar to release some of the flavor-filled juices.)

  • Fill the jar with water and give it a taste. (You can also fill the jar with seltzer water for a fizzy treat.) If you'd like something a bit sweeter, try adding some agave (and mix until dissolved).

  • Enjoy as-is or refrigerate overnight for maximum flavor. (i have transferred this into a glass jar and refrigerated over night )

This has got beautiful flavor of mosambi with less sugar in it and a bright yellow color making it more tempting

  • Don't end up making your recipe complicated and don't end up adding more sweetener as this water tastes best with less sweet
