This is our first recipe. We used orange and strawberry; you can be creative and combine fruits that you have available.
Try pineapple, mango, kiwifruit, strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, blueberries, watermelon, oranges, limes or lemons. Fresh cut herbs make a great flavor addition too. Try lemon balm, basil, rosemary, mint or monarda blooms.
Fresh fruits add a subtle flavor and Vitamin C, which is water soluble and naturally infuses into your water along with other water soluble nutrients.
- half an Orange
- one Strawberry
- 1-2 SweetLeaf Stevia packets
First, wash your new fruit infusion pitcher and wash the fruit you plan on using.
- Cut the fruit small enough to fit in the center infusion cylinder.
- Fill the pitcher with cold tap water and add 1-2 packets of SweetLeaf stevia
- Give it a quick swirl to stir and refrigerate to infuse hints of natural fruit flavors
SweetLeaf® Stevia products available also include Liquid Stevia Sweet Drops™ that come in 17 natural fruit, nut, cola, cinnamon or chocolate flavored drops that make a great addition to non carbonated beverage drinks, dessert sauces or foods such as yogurt or oatmeal. Ask for them at your local health food store.
