Orange Infused Water Using Florida Oranges

florida orangesFlorida oranges, they are the fruit of choice during the winter months of Florida. They provide a juicy snack, great juice to drink and also a great source of Vitamin C to fight colds. Did you know water is one of the many ways you can consume Florida oranges and still get the added benefits? Water is great for hydration but lacks the benefit of added Vitamin C and flavor.

The latest trend is Florida orange infused water!

But how do you do this?

  • Take 1 Florida orange, peel it into thin slices
  • Drop the slices into a pitcher of room temperature / lukewarm water
  • Place the pitcher of water in the fridge.

How does it work?

Slicing the Florida oranges and putting them into water creates the maximum amount of surface area to transfer the wonderful flavor and nutrients into the water, thus infusing your water with the wonderful health benefits of Florida oranges. The warm water begins to pull flavor and vitamin C out of the oranges and mix it in with the water adding wonderful flavor and all the added benefits.  So the next time you are wanting to enhance your water for your next workout or party, try some Florida orange infused water! You can purchase fresh Florida oranges picked daily at orangering.com.
