Give your ordinary drinks a fruity splash with these fruit infusing ice balls. Since the craze for ‘fruit-infused water’ started a few years back, we discovered the nutritional benefits of adding small pieces of cut fruits or herbs to drinking water. Fruits and herbs don’t only amp up the taste of plain water. But more importantly, fruit-infused water helps get rid of toxins from the body, increases energy, and makes a good source of additional vitamins.
This healthy trend had also found its way to other beverages aside from water. Adding sliced lemons to iced tea makes the drink more refreshing. Strawberry-infused seltzer lets you enjoy this sparkling drink with a sweet, berry twist. Adding mint leaves to lemonade brings the freshness of this tangy-sweet beverage to another level. Of course, adding fruits and herbs to your hard liquors gives a burst of fruity flavors to your cocktails. But here’s the thing, you can make this healthy trend even more fun by using these plastic molds to create fruit infusing ice balls.
