Make your water completely addicting by infusing it with fresh fruit and herbs. It’s easy to make and so refreshing! Fruit infused water is a great way to stay hydrated and nourished anytime of the year. Here are some tips from The Suburban Soapbox

Staying hydrated has never been more delicious!  Drinking your daily requirement of water can become so boring, so I like to add some flavor and vitamins to my water to keep things interesting and tasty. Cushman’s® HoneyBells are a perfect way to add some much needed flavor to your water.

Fruit Infused Water couldn’t be easier to make and I’m sharing my favorite ways to add flavor without adding sugar or artificial sweeteners. Cushman’s® HoneyBells add their own natural sweetness to the party. They also pair well with a variety of other ingredients which makes it fun to get creative. All three of these infused waters can be made up to 3 days in advance and enjoyed over ice or straight from the pitcher.

1. HoneyBells and Vanilla Bean water
