*I received free Ball® brand products in exchange for this post, but all opinions expressed here are 100% my own.
When the Ball® brand contacted me to try out their Ball® brand jars, I was excited! I love Ball® brand’s products, and have seen many great uses for their Ball® jars on Pinterest. Top on my list of Ball® brand projects to try was making healthy fruit and veggie infused waters for my family.
My family has been trying to eat lighter and healthier this summer. We have been having a lot of fresh salads with grilled chicken, fresh veggies and fruit, like berries and oranges. So, I have a lot of fresh fruit on hand, perfect for making infused water. My kids are already infused water fans — at a local frozen yogurt place we love, there is often some water infused with cucumbers, strawberries or other fruit for patrons.
To make my fruit-infused water, I sliced some oranges and lemons, and then added them to one of my new Spring Green Mason Jars. I just love these jars — spring green is my favorite color! I left the fruit flavor the water for a few hours in my fridge, and then my girls and I had some together with a fresh salad. It was delicious!
