A List Of Ways To Give Water Flavor

Updated on January 15, 2014

It can be so tought to drink water without any flavor to it. Maybe your goal is to eventually work your way up to making plain water drinkable. Maybe you already drink plain water and want to add flavor to keep from messing up your diet. It's not as hard as you think it is! Water just seems so bland to drink now. We want flavor and diversity! Some sweetness never hurt as well! Here is a small list of options of which you could use to add flavor to your water.

1. Tea

Tea has been around for a long time, and is a way of making water have flavor and more nutrients as well. To make tea you simple boil tea leaves in water, then filter them out. After that, you should have tea flavored water. Also known as tea. Isn't that really strange? Maybe you could try this pine needle tea recipe. http://zsezse4.hubpages.com/hub/Can-You-Use-Any-Type-Of-Pine-Needle-For-Pine-Needle-Tea-How-To-Make-Pine-Needle-Tea

2. Coffee

Coffee is known for a high caffene content, and a bitter flavor. So if you are trying to avoid caffene, then you should probably steer clear of this drink. However, unlike soda, coffee contains no fat, carbohydrates, or sugar (unless you add it) so that makes it automatically healthy and easy for weight loss. It's smell is delicious as well and can help prevent you from going hungry so you wont eat too much anymore either. Definately one of my favorite ways to make water drinkable.

3. Fruit

Fruit fermented water can be delicious as long as you don't try any weird combonations. One of the most famous things people do with water is add a lemon to it to give a sweet/sour sort of taste. It doesn't really add a whole lot of flavor if it's only one slice, but it certainly helps. You could try oranges, pomegranite, lemons, a combonation, or many other kinds of fruits and flavors!

4. Wine (Sweet Types Of Alcohol)

Wine is perhaps a more adult solution to this problem, but if you don't drink too much of it or it's a temporary solution you should be fine. A little bit of wine can make drinks and things taste very sweet or bitter depending upon your type of wine. I do not suggest nutty types of wine as that would be nasty. This has a risk of getting you addicted to alcohol of course.

5. Salt

Salt may seem very strange, but it makes your body absorb the water much quicker. It's not the healthiest solution, but if you dont overdo it and it's just a pinch of salt it will not be a big deal. This is what an "electrolyte" in an energy drink is. The science behind it is very strange, but it can help you if you need quick hydration even though salt dehydrates you. Strange...

6. Fruit Juice

Fruit juice would probably be a better flavoring than alcohol, because it is a lot healthier and much more flavorful. Make sure it isn't sweetened fruit juice, because then it's going to be adding mostly sugar into your drink. Sugar is bad. This fruit juice would go good with a bit of salt to help your body absorb the nutrients as well. Like I said before do not overdo the salt!

7. Mio Flavoring

Mio flavoring isn't natural of course (or maybe it is), but it is an extremely healthy and flavourful solution to your water flavoring. It's cheap and comes in little bottles that you can squirt into your canteen, water bottle, or water jug. Almost like a tea flavoring!

Here's a video on the side to show you how to make fruit flavor water. Quite a simple process, but I wont go into details because the video can show you what to do and how to do it. If you have questions or ideas feel free to post them into the comments and I will respond either with a comment or an article. Thanks for reading everyone and I hope this article serves you well throughout the rest of you life of living healthy and clean. Small changes are the first steps after all!

      Your welcome! By the way some of the flavorings contain aspartame and high fructose corn syrup which is what they put it soda. It is not good for you so thats why I put specifically MIO liquid because it doesn't have that stuff.

      I love it! I've been working hard to drink more water every day, but I just can't drink plain water. I've been drinking tons of hot and cold tea, using the liquid flavorings and even using the powder flavorings. I love some of your ideas and will have to give some of them a shot! Thanks!
