10 ways to make water taste better
Over the years we’ve heard everything there is to hear about drinking water. Most of the time, it’s the fact that some people struggle to keep up with their hydration, stating that water is too bland!
Today, we want to help you guys out! You’ll find some standard responses on here to jog your memory, but you might come across something new to help you out!
1. Good ol’ Squash
This is probably the most common way that people keep up with their daily hydration. Adding a bit of orange or blackcurrant squash to your water can give it that little taste explosion people need.
Whilst this can be great here and there, excessive intake of squash isn’t actually good for you, and can detract from many of the benefits H2O can offer you. Squash is often lacking in the nutrients that the original fruits offer, and they can also contain high levels of sugar.
Squash is a good place to start, but perhaps be cautious of how much you drink!
2. Infused Water
Trailing slightly away from squash, but along the same lines, we have infused water.
We wrote a post that included some information about infused water that you can find here! However, here is a little bit to catch you up to speed.
Infused water relies upon taking fresh fruits and allow the natural juices to seep out into your water, providing original benefits such as vitamins and other nutrients.
3. Infusion With A Twist
In addition to fruits, you could also try adding vegetables or other items such as basil or mint.
This is something quite different compared to fruit infused water, so this is a good way to achieve the same effect but with some different flavours and experiences.
4. Flavour Cartridges
Across the web, you can find cartridges to attach to your taps.
These can be a great way to drink water, by giving you flavoured water at your fingertips.
Whilst you won’t see the same benefits such as with infused water, if your goal is to drink more, this should help you well enough!
5. Don’t discredit tea and coffee!
Of course, much like squash, tea and coffee should be had in moderation due to caffeine, but remember all tea and coffee is made with hot water!
Whilst it isn’t the best way to get your daily dose of water, a little is always better than nothing. Try to use these beverages as a way to start your day off, and then move to a water bottle whilst out at work.
6. Fruit Teas
Made just the same as the grand English cuppa, a fruit tea can actually be more beneficial for hydration.
By eliminating milk, and in most cases sugars and sweeteners, you can acquire much more water with these teas; in fact, you might end up finding your new favourite go-to!
7. Try Out Sparkling Water
Whilst taste is often the most common complaint about water, there is something to be said to just adding a little kick rather than a taste overload.
If you’re a lover of fizzy drinks, this might be the way to go for you!
8. Get The Right Temperature
Marmite – you love it or hate it, right? Well, the same can be said for water!
Some people like room temperature water, some people don’t. Some people like ice-cold water, some people don’t.
Make sure you have your water just how you like it! Make it something to enjoy, not just to gulp down because you need to.
9. Broths and Soups
Sometimes we prefer something hot and savoury, as opposed to cold and/or sweet.
Soups and broths are a great way to boost your water intake, and you don’t have to make much effort to drink it either seeing as you can pair these with meals or lunchtimes.
10. Water Filters
We know, you probably saw this coming, but stay with us!
Water can often taste, well, off. Sometimes it has a strange tang to it that you can’t place, or even though it’s from a tap it just isn’t as fresh as you’d like.
