If you think water is boring, then this is for you!

We’ve heard it time and time again: Most Americans are chronically dehydrated without even noticing. Hydration is key for survival—and if you ask me, it’s more important than ever when facing the wrath of summer’s heat. So, you’re probably asking yourself, “How can I beat the season’s rising temps?” It’s simple, really.

Trade in the juice box and fizzy soda for the ultimate calorie-free thirst-quencher. With no added sugar and virtually no calories, infused waters are an easy way to kick off the summer with an increase in water intake.

Here at Cooking Light, we’ve soaked a pitcher or two (or three)—and now, it’s your turn to try. Jazz up your H20 flow by adding a berry-citrus mix of raspberry and lime.

Raspberries make for luscious summer desserts and jams, but they’re also delicious to soak. As a great source of vitamins and minerals like folate and Vitamins C, A and K, red raspberries can lower the risk for heart disease and treat upset stomachs. Bonus: 1 cup is packed with 8 grams of fiber! When your glass runs dry, refill, or eat the remaining berries to make the best of its nutritional benefits.

    I love the thought of infused water. It occurred to me recently that it would be a big mistake to NOT use organic fruit.
