We all know that we should drink more water. We also know the benefits of vitamins, but it can often be a struggle to get enough through food alone.

Naturally, it’s no surprise that we would want to combine these and get our vitamins and water simultaneously.

But instead of buying expensive flavored water products filled with artificial sweeteners and packaged in plastic bottles, did you know you can make your own natural vitamin water?

Here are my top eight recipes for natural vitamin water:

1. Lemon and cucumber

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1 cucumber and a lemon, thinly sliced + 1/4 cup fresh finely chopped basil leaf + 1/3 cup of finely chopped fresh mint leaves. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

2. Strawberry and lime

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 6 strawberries and one thinly sliced lime + 12 finely chopped fresh mint leaves. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

3. Blackberry and sage

Mix in a pitcher : 10 cups of water + 1 cup of blackberries that have been very slightly crushed + 3-4 sage leaves. Leave in refrigerator overnight before serving.

4. Watermelon and rosemary

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1 cup of watermelon cut into cubes + 2 rosemary stems. Leave in refrigerator overnight before serving. (I particularly like this book, it covers all aspects of growing, handling, and cooking with fresh herbs.)

5. Pineapple and mint

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1 cup of pineapple cut into cubes + 12 fresh mint leaves finely chopped. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

6. Apple and cinnamon

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1 cup of apple cut into cubes + 2 cinnamon sticks + 2 teaspoon of ground cinnamon. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

7. Pomegranate, blackberry and cherry

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1 cup of cherries (pitted) + 1/2 cup of blackberries + 1/2 cup of pomegranate seeds + pinch of Himalayan crystal salt. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.

8. Strawberry, pineapple and pear.

Mix in a pitcher: 10 cups of water + 1/2 cup of strawberries + 1/2 cup of pineapple (sliced) + 1 cup of pears (sliced) + pinch of Himalayan crystal salt. Leave in the refrigerator overnight before serving.
