Pomegranate Mint Infused Water is a great treat for the warmer days of Fall! Drink it to pamper yourself, or serve it at a party! My kids had a lot of fun making it with me, and they were pretty curious about it, but only two of them ended up actually liking it. I bet you can guess which camp this little guy ended up in…
Infused water is a healthy way to pamper yourself. Pomegranates are very high in antioxidants, and they even have some estrogen in them (not the dangerous, cancer causing kind). Click here to read more about the health benefits of pomegranates.
The Pomegranate Mint Infused Water is really easy to make! We have a million pomegranates growing on the trees in our yard, so I love to use them up! Making this water kills two birds with one stone…you get the water for you, and seeds for kids (yah, I love the seeds, too, but my kids attack them like vultures!). Here’s the recipe:
- 2 Pomegranates
- A Large Handful of Mint Sprigs
- About a Gallon of Water
Start with a large bowl of filtered water. Cut your pomegranates into quarters and place them in the water. You may want to do one pomegranate at a time, so your bowl doesn’t get overly full. Use your fingers to separate the seeds from the white and red parts of the peel. The peel will float to the top, and the seeds will sink to the bottom. Pour the water through a strainer into a pitcher. Add the mint and some ice, and it’s done. Serve in mason jars, with Fall baking cups as lids, and fun straws. Use the sharp tip of a knife to start a small hole in the baking cup to get the straw in. Enjoy!
