I love mangoes. And I use basil in practically everything. It was just a matter of time before I created this Mango Infused Water with Basil recipe. Basil is a delicious, natural anti-inflammatory and natural antibiotic herb. Along with an overly sweet fruit like a mango this recipe is well balanced and delicious.
In addition to the healthy benefits of basil, the mango add a nutritious punch to this infused water recipe! Mangoes aid in digestion, boost your memory and increases your sex drive!
Do I have your attention now? Try this out, besides being incredibly good for you, it is delicious and will help you drink more water to lose weight.
Makes one big pitcher of Mango Infused Water with Basil, can be refilled 4-6 times before replacing fruit and herbs.
- 1 Large Ripe Mango
- Large handful of Basil- about 8 large leafs
In a large clean pitcher rip the basil in half (always rip basil, never use a knife it will brown the herb) and toss in, slice the mango into large chunks and toss in.
Cover the fruit and herbs with ice and then add water, place in the fridge for at least an hour before serving for maximum deliciousness. I drank this all evening, about 3 re-fills, and then left in fridge overnight, it was so yummy the next morning.
