We love our Fruity Infuser Bottle – it is a water bottle with a plastic internal basket that can be filled with fruits, vegetables, and herbs. It easily comes apart for cleaning (handwash only), and the lid has a flip-up drinking spout that will keep you sipping fruity flavors all day long. It is available in a 25 oz and a 32 oz size.
