I don’t know about you but I enjoy flavored water. To me, it just has more of a personality and kick rather than plain old water.

For long time, I was purchasing flavored water packets to give my water a boost but after reading they contain Aspartame (which is a substitute for sugar and it’s been known to cause weight gain along with other health issues) I ditched those.

How Much Water Should I Drink Daily?

One of the many questions I’ve been asked is “how much water should I drink daily”.

The quick answer is it is recommended to drink (8) 8-ounce glasses of water a day, or, 64-ounces of water a day.

However, this is pure recommendation based on the average adult’s needs. Everyone is different, so, most recommend to drink to thirst. Meaning, if you are thirsty, drink until you are no longer thirsty.

If you’ve been looking for a way to increase your daily water intake and want to mix it up, then this is a perfect solution!

The recipe is below, enjoy!

Hi Jason! So glad you want to try it. The amount of Strawberries you use is entirely up to how much flavoring you want. I used an entire 1 pound container of strawberries but you can use more or less.
