If you struggle to drink plain water all day, this is something you may like! This is flavoured water – a great alternative to anyone who goes for the bottled drinks – try this instead! I’ve been making flavoured water with different flavour variations – but I think this combo is especially yummy. Ever since I started making them – I’ve had no problem staying hydrated and I feel better. And that’s we want, right – to feel our best!
Not only will you get the benefits from water which include mental clarity, energy, healthy gut, overall health – but because of the citrus and berries – you’ll get the added vitamins too! Full of beautifying properties and antioxidants – you get a boost of vit C which plays a key role in healthy, youthful skin!
Now, it’s not a juice – it doesn’t even taste like one. It’s a really good flavoured water, light and refreshing with a touch of sweetness. Make a whole litre of it and keep it in the fridge or carry it out in your water bottle. You’ll see, drinking water will become an enjoyable treat!
Citrus & Berry
- less than 1 litre (about 4 cups ) of water – (the fruit will fill it up)
- 1 sweet orange, peeled
- 4 ripe strawberries (don’t take the greens tops off!)
- a toddler’s handful of blue berries
- in your blender, blend up all the ingredients (check my my top 3 favorite blenders)
- recommended: strain the mixture so it’s not gritty from the seeds
- bottle it up and drink
I don’t think it needs sugar or sweeteners – make sure to choose ripe fruits so that it’s naturally sweet.

Hello 🙂 I’ve been a long-time lurker and I really enjoyed receiving your newsletters all these while.
While I love all your photographs and posts, I have a favour to ask, actually: may I know where you got that steel straw from? I have been looking for one for months! Thanks in advance!
Hi Ning! Thanks for the kind words! I got them from Amazon – but had my parents bring them over from the States when they last visited… I’m not sure if they deliver, but give it a try:
or, you can try aliexpress – but they sell them in larger packs of 12 or more… maybe go in with a friend? It’s still a good price:
hope that helps! 🙂
I found these recycled Pyrex straws here
I’d have bought a whole bunch, but they’re 15 bucks for one!! Still I love the concept. Thought you might like to know….
This is a new site for me, thanks a million for sharing! 🙂
Wow, thanks for sharing, Parul! 🙂
Very welcome 🙂 If you’re into Indian cooking, this is possibly the only place in Singapore that sells cold pressed, organic mustard oil and other Indian flours, spices and lentils. They’re a new business so often have stock issues. I’m not affiliated to them in any way. Just a happy customer who would like to support businesses that sell good stuff, unlike the junk flooding the supermarket shelves. I personally am passionate about nutritious home baking.

I made your recipe of citrus and berry thirst quencher, only I substituted pomagranate for orange peel. Raw honey could be added for sweetness, but I liked the tart flavor. Thank you for such a nice recipe.
