Good hydration is essential to feeling fit. I admit, I am not always consistent at drinking water. While I enjoy a glass of ice water, I also like to mix it up with infused waters.
From time to time, I enjoy coconut water (especially in the Summer). I find it very refreshing and if I sip it during a workout it seems to help me maintain my stamina. This recipe is actually a result of my experimenting with a tasty drink I can enjoy on-to-go or in the gym. The ratios are based on a personal water bottle, but you can easily adapt it to a pitcher or multi-serving container.
Glasstic has provided one of their Shatterproof Glass Water Bottles to review. I have found the Glasstic bottles are perfect for strongly flavored drinks like this. Because the inner bottle is glass, I can fully clean it between use so the next beverage has a fresh bottle.
And you are also in luck! Glasstic has generously offered to give one lucky Feeling Fit reader a Glasstic Shatterproof Water Bottle! To enter, visit the giveaway widget after the recipe for Coconut Water Strawberry Infused Lemonade.

My Thoughts on my Glasstic Water Bottle:
On the go with coconut water infuse with lemon and strawberry in my Glasstic water bottle. I will share my recipe for a healthier alternative strawberry lemonade and my thoughts on Glasstic later this week. @glassticbottle #fitfam #sweatpink #fitfluential #lemonade #coconut #infusedwater #bloggersperks A photo posted by Slysam Feeling Fit (@slysamblogs) on
Spoiler alert — I love this water bottle. In my opinion it offers the benefits of a plastic water bottle and the benefits of a glass water bottle. I think it is a very creative and useful product. I recorded a video review sharing my thoughts.
Just in case you prefer a written review, the primary benefits of this style of bottle are:
- You drink from a glass bottle rather than plastic. It can be used with hot or cold drinks and is easily cleaned with a bottle brush (glass is less likely to retain flavors).
- This design is more safe than a typical glass bottle as the glass is encased within a plastic outer-wall for protection and to contain the glass if it should break.
- The glass inner bottle and plastic outer bottle create a double walled effect that helps maintain the liquid’s temperature.
I only experienced one small disadvantage:
- This bottle is considerably larger compared to the volume of liquid it can carry, so it takes more room in my bag. Given the other benefits, I am okay with that but decided to mention it in interest of fairness and full disclosure.
I am not the most mechanically inclined person and had a slight difficulty figuring out how to disassemble my Glasstic bottle. When it arrived, it contained a product information sheet between the glass and plastic wall. I also clean everything before use. To save you time, here is a short demonstration of how to assemble and disassemble the bottle.
