Strawberry and Tangerine Fruit Infused Water
Fruits that are high in Vitamin C are big metabolism boosters! One of my favorite combos is Strawberry and Tangerine Fruit Infused Water, both hot and cold this is a delicious drink.
Try to drink a gallon a day for fast weight loss, all of my zero calorie drinks count in the “gallon a day,” as does good old fashioned water. Just stay away from the chemical powders and drops, use what’s from nature to lose weight.
I recently came across dried strawberries, which means I can have this all year long but if you can’t find them don’t fret, just slice fresh or frozen strawberries and plan on using a fine mesh sieve, coffee filter or tea bag as they might fall apart.
Makes 1 pot of tea or 1 liter of cold drink-
- 1/2 cup dried or fresh sliced strawberries
- Rind of one tangerine- try to get little to none of the white pith-
There are three ways to make Strawberry and Tangerine Fruit Infused Water, put it all in the tea pot, or make individual cups. It all depends on your willingness to wash your tea pot. I have also included a cold version for this delicious drink.
Tea pot instructions- Place the tangerine rind and strawberries into a teapot, cover with water and bring to a boil. To serve cover the nose of your tea pot with a coffee filter or use a fine mesh sieve over your tea cup to avoid strawberry pulp.
Individual tea cups- Boil water, add in 1/4 of the rind and a tablespoon of dried strawberries. Allow the strawberries to plump up and just as they start to fall apart (about 3 minutes) use a fork to scoop them out and discard. Leave the rind in the tea cup for both added flavor and beauty.
Make it cold- Boil 3 cups (or as much as your tea pot will hold) of water making the “tea pot instructions” let it cool with the fruit left in then strain into a 1 liter jug discarding the strawberries. Top with water until it is full, pluck out the tangerine rind, rinse and add to your pitcher then place in the fridge to cool. Serve over ice and drink up. If you want to do a bigger batch just double the recipe.
