Hydration doesn’t have to be boring! Besides our daily dose of sunshine water with liquid chlorophyll there are so many fun ways to get creative with your water. Making a mocktail with a herbal infusion and superfoods adds nutrients to amp up your system and makes it tastier and more vibrant.
A herbal infusion can look like flowers, herbs, spices and fruit to everyday beverages like water, sparkling water or kombucha. These herbal elements have a deliciously subtle taste, don't add extra sugar and add their own set of health benefits depending on the herbs you use.
Goji berries protect the eyes, support your immune system, and promote healthy skin. Rose provides a bit of magic and a boost of antioxidants, tannins, flavonoids, and essential A, C, D, E, and B3 vitamins. We’ve also added our Berry Bliss which is high in antioxidants, protein, vitamin A, and contains camu camu—one of the world's most abundant forms of vitamin C.
Make sure to top it off with berries and ice for a beautiful spring refresher!
1 cup hot water
4 tbsp goji berries
2 tbsp dried rose petals

Steep the goji berries and rose petals in hot water for at least 20 minutes (ideally overnight) or until the goji berries are soft and the water turns slightly pink and infused with the flavors of the goji berry and rose.
Strain the goji berries and rose from the water and then add kombucha or sparkling water, Berry Bliss, lemon juice and mixed berries. You can add ice for an extra cool beverage.
