Energy Boosting Berry Peach Coconut Water

Energy Boosting Berry Peach Coconut Water

Almost everyone I talk with today is so busy and tired most of the time.  Having an activity packed, stress-filled life can really drain your energy reserves. I can relate because I spend a lot of time working online and on the go so I’m always trying to figure out the best way to keep my energy high naturally. I drink my energy boosting berry peach coconut water whenever I need that extra energy to help me feel better! If you’re feeling low in energy or sluggish during the day this water will really help you! I know that drinking plain water can get so boring! I wanted to start sharing some of my personal recipes for seasonal fruit infused waters so you can have some good alternatives to just drinking plain water.

 

My delicious infused water recipe has fresh blueberries, blackberries, doughnut peaches, coconut water, spring water and wild orange essential oil. These wonderful ingredients taste great and all work together to help increase your energy naturally. One of the main causes of low energy is dehydration that occurs when we don’t drink enough water. Since our bodies are primarily made up of water, we need to replenish this water on a daily basis in order to stay hydrated and energized.

 

Staying hydrated especially in hot weather is really vital for vibrant health. If you eat a lot of cooked or dense foods, exercise frequently, work outdoors, are detoxing, or taking any prescription  or over-the-counter medications, it is really important that you drink enough water to stay hydrated. I find that by infusing my waters with nutrient-rich ingredients that taste delicious, it gives me more reasons to want to drink plenty of it.

 

Drinking fruit infused waters also helps remove cravings for sodas and commercial energy drinks. Today’s water recipe has a tasty natural sweetness that comes from the fruit and coconut water. Unsweetened organic coconut water is a fabulous water to include in your beverage choices!

 

Coconut water is an isotonic beverage that is a great source of potassium, calcium, and magnesium which are important minerals and electrolytes you need to help your body stay healthy. Coconut water also contains B vitamins, amino acids, and iron that are all important nutrients for radiant health.

 

I put wild orange essential oil in this water because of the wonderful flavor and fragrant aroma that it adds to my recipe. I really love the smell of wild oranges! Wild orange essential oil makes me feel happy and energized whenever I smell its beautiful fragrance! Wild orange and frankincense are my favorite essential oils to use on a daily basis.

 

Wild orange essential oil is cold pressed from the orange peel and is GRAS for internal use. Only use essential oils internally that state for dietary use on their label.

 

I am a essential oils educator and I love using essential oils every day. If you want to find out more about how to use essential oils in your life for wellness, feel free to email me with questions or to schedule a free essential oils phone consultation at aharmonyhealing@gmail.com.

 

I hope you enjoy this infused water recipe whenever you want an energy boosting healthy beverage! Have you ever made infused fruit waters before? What are your favorite combinations? Please contribute to the conversation by leaving a comment.

Energy Boosting Berry Peach Coconut Water

Energy Boosting Berry Peach Coconut Water

Paleo, Vegan, Vegetarian, Gluten-Free, Dairy-Free

Makes 64 ounces

1 cup organic blueberries

1 cup organic blackberries

2 doughnut peaches— pitted and cut into ½ inch wedges

6 cups (48 ounces) spring or filtered water

2 cups unsweetened organic coconut water (click here to see the coconut water I used in the recipe)

1-2 drops wild orange essential oil-optional

1 gallon clean glass jar with lid (here’s a good option)

 

1. Place blueberries and blackberries into the bottom of your jar. Lay the peach slices on top. Pour the spring water and coconut water into the jar and add the wild orange essential oil drops into the jar. Stir the water with a spoon, cover with a lid and put water into the refrigerator for at least 1 hour or overnight for the best flavor.

 

2. After the water infuses overnight you can enjoy it! You can leave the fruits in the infused water for up to 2 days before you need to strain them out of the water.  On the second day, I like to add more water and few more drops of wild orange essential oil in once I drink up the first batch.  The fruit flavor is not as strong but it still is very refreshing. After 2 days you can eat or compost the fruit rather than just throwing them away. Most of the flavor will be extracted from the  fruit but you can still add them into a smoothie with other fruits and veggies. Enjoy!

  1. Oh this does sound yummy Shelley! I want you to know that because of YOU I finally tried coconut water and coconut oil and and now totally hooked on both. This recipe is definitely doable even with out limited selection of fruits, so I look forward to giving it a try. Thanks for the inspiration!

    • Marty, I’m so happy to hear that! Coconut is an amazing superfood and I love everything about it from the water to the oil, meat, and sap. I’m actually teaching two classes on coconut at Whole Foods Markets in Los Angeles and Tarzana next week and I wish you could be there! I hope you enjoy this infused fruit water because it is so refreshing and tasty! Enjoy!

  2. Shelley, Another amazing looking drink! I have to try this as I’ve loved coconut water ever since being in Thailand and drinking it straight from the baby coconut, you get it on almost every street corner there 🙂

  3. This was an eyeopener Shelley!

    Although I wasn’t previously familiar with doughnut peaches, I must admit that sounds incredibly good! Probably not the the right reasons!LOL!

    I guess I kinda of already knew the importance of regularly drinking water, but after reading your extremely informative post, I definitely know going forward, that more daily glasses of water, has to become a part of my daily activities!

    Boring or not, I really have no problem with drinking more water! Thanks for sharing your expertise Shelley!

    May I just say Shelley that your blog is incredibly visually appealing and easy to navigate! Well done 🙂
    Also, this recipe sounds delicious! My wife and I are visiting georgia right now so I might have to do this before we have to leave the famously delicious peaches down here 🙂 Thanks for the great post!

  6. Great tips Shelley and a wonderful recipe. Ideal for drinking on a detox diet. I’m with you on drinking plain water. I tend to drink a lot of green tea instead.

  7. I need to try this! I drink a lot of water and tea, and sometimes need to break it up with something. This just might do the trick. Love the canning jar you put it in for the picture.

  8. What a great recipe for this refreshing drink! I keep telling myself that I want to make a homemade flavored water, but I have not done so, yet. I HAVE put organic lemon juice in water, but never just the lemon, itself. I think my mind is just averse to chunks of anything in my drink. It’s silly, right?

    Still..you make it look so amazing. I am going to finally break down and try it and, I will report back to you to tell you how it tasted. By the way, I LOVE your website! Keep up the great work you are doing here!

  9. Shelley…this is actually the right comment to post to your site. Sorry about that. I am on a new domain, now.

    Anyway…here is my correct comment. 🙂

  10. Yes,

    Just when I needed to find something that will work with all these new medicines. I am drained each day and that is based on my medicines. Now, I love water and drink a huge amount. Yet, water alone really gets to me. Now, to have this along side. This will make a huge difference and the only little challenge. Is to be patient and gather the needed supplies. I will have to find them in my area.

    Thanks you for reaching out to us. Most will look this over and never give it a second thought. I will be one of the people to give you a real solid feed back. I will allow the time needed to adjust to my body. Then, keep an eye if it works at all.

    Thanks again and enjoy your New Years.

  11. This sounds fantastic. I love coconut water and have noticed a difference since I started drinking it. Adding the fruit to it seems like the perfect thirst quencher and is a great way to increase my fruit intake. Can’t wait to try it!

  13. Coconut water contains a high amount of potassium, chlorides, calcium, and magnesium. These are essential minerals that our body needs for certain functions.Your methods are followed by me.
