Red, White and Blue Infused Water
Infused water is all the rage for both detoxing and weight loss...this version would be perfect for a backyard barbecue too!
1 cup chopped strawberries
1 cup fresh blueberries
Pineapple cut into star shapes
1/2 cup fresh basil leaves
Crush basil with hands to release flavor and place in bottom of glass pitcher.
Fill pitcher with fruit and ice.
Pour distilled water over fruit and ice and let it stand for up to a full day before serving.
Keeping the water iced and cold is crucial to ensuring the fruit stays fresh and intact.
Once the initial water has been used, you can refill the pitcher and the second batch will be almost as flavorful as the first!
