We all know that we should be drinking more water every day. In fact, some of us (raising my hand), need to be drinking a lot more water every day. But gulping down glass after glass of plain water can often feel overwhelming…and kind of boring. Luckily, there’s a way to make managing your water intake way easier. Infused water recipes add a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs to water to amp up the taste.

Here are some of our favorite infused water recipes to help you easily meet your daily requirement. So, drink up and get healthy!

This one might be the easiest and most common way to improve your daily water habit: simply add some lemons! Many people swear by starting off their day with hot water and lemon. In fact, there are many health benefits associated with lemon water, including boosting your immune system and balancing your body’s pH levels.

For an extra treat, add some chopped lemons to your ice tray with water, then freeze overnight. You can use these in your water or even in a big glass of lemonade.
