One of our favorite childhood snacks – that always seems to be the perfect solution to a scorching summer day -  is a fresh slice of watermelon! Not only is this summertime treat absolutely delicious and easy to prep, but recent studies have revealed watermelon’s amazing health benefits! Besides being more than 90 percent water, a 10-ounce wedge of watermelon can pack in as much as one-third of the recommended daily value of vitamins A and C, as well as a substantial amount of potassium! Who knew?! So when you’re prepping those picnics or party trays this summer, go for a snack that is just as tasty as it is nutritious! What are some of your favorite summertime treats?

DIYFruit Infused Water Recipes

With sodas, energy drinks, and other sugar-laden beverages so easily accessible nowadays, it can be hard to stay healthy and hydrated in the summer. Beverages like coffee, sparkling water, and sodas actually dehydrate you, leaving your body even more parched than before. Fruit infused water is the perfect solution, for it not only offers healthy, low-calorie, on-the-go hydration, but is absolutely delicious too! Below you can find three fruit infused water recipes that we absolutely love that will keep you healthy, hydrated, and happy all summer long!

Directions:

Simply slice your fruit and herbs, place in a glass filled with ice, fill with water, and let everything infuse for at least an hour. If you want even more flavor you can muddle your fruit and herbs, or leave your mixture to infuse overnight. *Be sure to wash everything thoroughly before slicing!*
