Strawberry Mango Infused Water
Make this strawberry mango infused water for a refreshing fruit infused water. I love mango infused water with strawberries so that is how I made this recipe that is perfect to enjoy throughout the day with fresh refills of some cold water.
WHY INFUSED WATER
Infused water is a great alternative to sodas and sports drinks. I personally love drinking plain water, but others do not. Fruit and vegetable infused water has extra vitamins and nutrients.
WHY STRAWBERRY MANGO INFUSED WATER
Mangos are an excellent snack for recovery after training and even regular exercise. The antioxidants in mangos help protect the body against free radicals. I know that some it may be hard to drink tons of water. That’s why I’m sharing our Strawberry Mango Lime Infused Water Recipe. It’s a great way to get your vitamins and minerals and also get your water in too! If you make it the morning of consumption you can snack on the leftover fruit. It will be a little watery and not as sweet as it flavored the water, but I still think it tastes delicious and no need to waste that perfect fruit. If you don’t like lime you can use lemon, orange or grapefruit. The citrus really helps break down the fruits a little more and gives the water more flavor.
How to pick out a mango: A ripe mango will give a bit when you squeeze gently. Just like a peach you want one that is soft and no blemishes. The color is not an indicator of a ripe mango.
