My 3 Favorite Fruit Infused Water Recipes

Here are the best fruit infused water recipes to cool you off

 

Summer is here!!!!!! And it’s so important for us to stay hydrated. I admit to having a problem with drinking water. I don’t mind the taste, but after a while, it tends to get boring. But in my quest to develop healthy habits, I know I need to up my water intake. But plain ole water can be…boring.  Enter fruit infused water.

 

Fruit infused water recipes

Fruit infused water is so easy to make and the possible combinations are endless. I mean, you can literally add anything and make great tasting water.

And thanks to Pinterest and a little creativity, I’ve come up with my 3 Favorite Fruit Infused Water Recipes

And they are DELICIOUS.

 

1. BlackBerry and Sage

When I first saw this one, I was skeptical. BUT it not only makes a beautiful infused  water, but it tastes great too! The pairing is unusual, but it works. Add to the bottom of your pitcher and drink up. The combo is really refreshing and is now one of my favorites.

 

2. Strawberry and Mint

Most fruit infused water recipes involving strawberries usually include basil. BUT I didn’t have any basil in my garden, but what I do have it LOTS of mint. The sweetness of the strawberries combined with the coolness of the mint is the PERFECT combination. Make sure you tear and squeeze the mint leaves to release the flavor. This combo is so refreshing on hot days.

3. Cucumbers and Lemon

This is classic. Haven’t you seen this one in your massage parlor or spa?  The combo of lemon and cucumber combines to make your infused water so refreshing! Since this was the first recipe I ever tried, I will always be partial to it.

So there you have it. My three favorite fruit infused water recipes. Have you ever tried fruit in your water? What are your favorite combos? Share in the comments!

    I don’t know about that mint hmmm I might have to try it. Also, I tried the cucumber and it made my water bitter someone said because mine wasn’t sweet I don’t know but I am not trying again lol

      after a while, yes it’s bitter. If you add the cucumber, you have to drink it all up. It can’t linger! Try the mint!! It’s gooood!

    I am a huge water drinker, but I’ve never actually tried fruit-infused water. I really should give it a try. Each of these ones just looks so pretty and delicious! It really is a great way to switch things up when the taste of just plain water starts to get boring.

    These all look so refreshing! I think I’d love the Blackbery and Sage the best. And, it’s just about blackberry season here so my bushes are full of just about ripe fruit. Sweet timing!

    Strawberry and save sounds really good. I bet strawberry and basil would be another great combo.

    These recipes sound delicious! I’m definitely going to have to try them. I could never get into fruit infused water. They are never sweet enough for me but I guess that would defeat the purpose if they were sweet.

    Thank you for this post! I have been trying to live a healthier lifestyle, but I admit that drinking plain water gets old quickly. I have been reading about fruit infused water lately. I think trying to the cucumber and lemon would be perfect for me. Thanks!

    I must admit. Nothing beats juice or soda! However, I’m trying to pull myself away from that and drink more “natural” and healthy. I made a few fruit infused waters and they were pretty good. I’m interested in trying that Blackberry and Sage. Thanks for sharing and it was great attending your IG class at BlogHer 🙂

    Strawberry and mint sounds good. I had some orange infused water the other day. I think my favorite would have to be the strawberry and kiwi infused water thus far.

    I love infused water. I have never tried adding sage, but it sounds like it would blend perfectly with fruits. My favorite is strawberry basil and Honeydew mint. Sometimes I would just take a slice of each of the fruits that I have; banana-pineapple-lemon is yummy, too.

    These look AMAZING!! I love fruit infused water. I’ve tried the lemon/cucumber before but I’ll have to try the others. I’m actually growing mint in my herb garden but haven’t used any yet.

    I love to drink water but can’t stand it plain. I think fruit infused water is a great alternative to some of the other ways to flavor your water. I have not tried these combinations before they sound delicious!

    These look so yummy! I recently had cucumber and mint from whole foods. I have to learn how to create my own. I’ve only ever made some that tasted like nasty watered down fruit juice. I have to learn how to “infuse” the flavor. I’m gonna start here!

    Now, I have heard of the cucumber and lemons, but I have never heard of the blackberry and sage. I want to try it but I am scared that he sage may over power the blackberry, but since you say its good i’ll try it.

    First of all, your photography is exceptional!! Secondly, I’ve been on this infused water kick the past few weeks. I’ve gained a whole new appreciation for fruit, and since I usually drink like 13 glasses of water a day (yes, it’s a lot. lol), I’ve had to find new ways to get creative with the infusions. Thanks for sharing!

    I’m not a big fan of infused water. I just don’t like flavoring in my water. I may have to try one of these and see if it changes my mind though. They all look refreshing especially on a hot summer day.

    My colleagues are on this trend heavily. I’ve tried it with lemon and mint. I didn’t think I would like the mint but it’s so cool and refreshing. I’m not sure how to keep it from going bad so fast though. I waste a lot of mint.

    I recently bought a water bottle especially for fruit infused water. My favourite combination at the moment is strawberry and peach. I might give the strawberry and mint combination a go though 🙂
