I’m always trying to find ways to drink enough water, not just as a New Year’s resolution but as a regular habit. I don’t like sugary drinks, so I’m constantly looking for alternatives. 

This blueberry (arándano) fruit-infused water recipe is not only delicious but also a healthy drink with many health benefits.

After a while, plain old water can be boring, and blueberries have so many incredible benefits, including being an excellent source of vitamin C. After reading this article on Goop about heavy metal detox, I came across the incredible benefits of wild blueberries. 

I then went down the rabbit hole of all things wild blueberries and how incredible Maine wild blueberries were. Then, I added lemon juice and fresh herbs like fresh mint, and now I make this flavored water recipe at least once a week.

  2. Go frozen when you can. They’ll last so much longer.
  3. Play with the recipe and add any of your favorite citrus fruits or herbs.

Blueberry Water Is More Than Just A Refreshing Drink

You can call it blueberry water or blueberry agua fresca! What’s incredible about this refreshing blueberry juice is that it’s made with really good-for-you, wild blueberries. 

I discovered these frozen wild, juicy blueberries with 2x the antioxidants. It is better than just plain fresh blueberries because they’re frozen and last in the freezer for so much longer.

Notes

Notes:

This recipe doesn’t require straining, so you will notice small pieces of blueberries in the water. However, if you prefer to remove the blueberry bits, you can strain the mixture using a fine mesh strainer. It’s worth noting that by keeping the bits of blueberries in the water, you get the added health benefit of the fiber found in blueberries.

    Yum, I made a big batch in a pitcher, and I love how it’s kind of sweet without any added sugar because I’m always looking for ways to cut sugar.
