No matter how clean you eat, proper hydration is key, though, it can be tough to chug water all day long.
That’s why I’m all for these infused water recipes.
Let’s face it, most of us don’t drink enough water in a day. This can lead to unwanted symptoms like headaches or fatigue. And who wants that?
Infused water is my trick to staying hydrated. The additional ingredients make it way more enticing to sip on water all day long.
Plus, refreshing ingredients like cucumber and lime do more than just flavor your water. They’ll add electrolytes, too!
Whether you’re looking for a detox remedy or weight loss booster, these infused water recipes are your secret weapon to hydrate and feel great.
How to Make Infused Water
1. Apple Water
Did you get an overabundance of apples this season? Make apple water!
You’ll slice up those crisp apples and soak them in water for 30 minutes. Then, it’s ready to drink.
To avoid waste, I like to snack on my apples after soaking them. You could even repurpose them into muffins or a smoothie if you like.
2. Apple Cinnamon Detox Water
This fall-flavored water is a great detoxifier to keep you feeling good as the seasons start to change.
Apples are full of antioxidants and cinnamon is an anti-inflammatory, both of which do wonders for a little cleanse.
3. Summer Citrus Energy Infusion
Hot weather and fun outdoor activities mean more hydration is in order. So I officially declare this the drink of summer.
It’s sweet, fresh, and zingy thanks to the strawberries, mint, and orange. To extract more oil from the mint, you can slice it or rub it in between your fingers.
4. Strawberry Lemon Infused Water
This tasty tonic will perk you right up!
The mix of strawberries, lemon, and lime is super refreshing. Plus, these ingredients are packed with nutrients.
It’ll take all but 5 minutes to throw this together. Then, let it chill in the fridge for a few hours to give the ingredients time to infuse the water.
This is a fun recipe for birthdays, brunches, pool parties, and more.
5. Instant Pot Strawberry Rosemary Infused Water
Did you know you can use your Instant Pot to make infused water, too? Here’s how.
You’ll add a handful of strawberries, a sprig of rosemary, and filtered water to your Instant Pot.
Let it do its thing for about 30 minutes, then plop the water into the fridge.
This is also a good one to turn into ice cubes for mocktails, cocktails, or lemonade.
You could even use the ice cubes to chill your infused water if you like.
6. Cucumber Water With Mint
Fresh mint and crisp cucumber are a flawless choice for infused water. Both have a cooling effect that will quell your thirst in the most refreshing way.
This recipe works well with basil and peppermint extract as well.
Either way, the combination of cucumber with any sort of herb is like a trip to the spa. Sip on a glass and you’ll feel rejuvenated.
7. Basil Berry Infused Water
This blissful concoction is super yummy and revitalizing.
It’s no secret that berries are jam-packed with antioxidants. But did you know that basil is, too?
So pour a glass and sip to your health.
Strawberries and blueberries are an excellent berry combo, but you can throw some blackberries and raspberries in there for a twist.
8. Blackberry Lemon Infused Water
Sweet and tangy blackberry lemon water is a real treat.
You’ll combine everything together and pour over ice to keep it nice and cold.
If you have a fruit infusion pitcher, I recommend using it. Otherwise, a large mason jar or a tall glass will do.
9. 4th of July Water
Whenever I host a Fourth of July party, I like to make a big carafe of this water.
It has strawberries, blueberries, and apples for a little red, white, and blue color.
There are also some other stellar substitutions like raspberries, cherries, or pears.
10. Watermelon Detox Water
Downing Smurf blue sports drinks to replenish electrolytes doesn’t sound all that appealing to me. If you feel the same, try this instead.
Juicy watermelon and cucumbers are great for detoxing. They’re also stellar for naturally replenishing electrolytes, which we can all use in summer.
11. Pineapple Infused Water
The tropical flavor of this juicy pineapple water is another fabulous thirst-quencher for the summer.
It’s like a vacation in a glass that’s all about summer fun.
Whether you’re hitting the beach or hanging lazily in the hammock, this water is a great summer sipper.
12. Orange Blueberry Infused Water
With this 5-minute recipe, you can mix up a large pitcher of this tasty infused water to keep on hand.
This is great for when you need to refill your water bottle and hop to it. It’s also nice to have on hand when unexpected company shows up at your door.
If you want your water a little sweeter, muddle the blueberries and oranges before adding the water.
13. Citrus Bliss Infused Water
If you love citrus as much as I do, you’ll love this recipe.
Between the lemon, lime, and orange, it’s serious citrus bliss.
If you have other citrus fruits on hand like grapefruit or blood oranges, add some of those as well.
The longer you let the water sit, the more citrus-flavored it will be.
14. Orange Basil Infused Water
Jumpstart your day with an invigorating tonic of orange and basil-infused water.
Orange and basil keep it sprightly while turmeric adds a sweet, peppery twist.
Aside from the flavor, another thing I love about turmeric is it’s full of anti-inflammatory properties.
When I add it to my water, I like to peel off the skin. Otherwise, it imparts a somewhat murky flavor.
15. Instant Pot Cranberry Apple Infused Water
Relax and reset with this autumn mix. It’s a great way to take a breather from holiday stress and calorie-loaded baked goods.
You’ll infuse your water with an Instant Pot to extract all the juices from the fruit. Then let it rest until it’s cooled down.
If you like your water bubbly, add a splash of sparkle water to the mix once it’s ready to go.
16. Cranberry Orange Cardamom Spa Water
This is one of the ways I like to stay healthy in the winter.
The combination of cranberry and cardamom adds a bit more pizazz, while oranges add a dose of vitamin C.
Plus, it’s festive enough for a holiday.
17. Detox Lime Infused Water
If you’re searching for a simple detox elixir, this is a great place to start.
Simply add lime slices to a pitcher of water, let it sit for half a day, then strain. The longer you let it sit, the more it will infuse your water with nutrients.
18. Fat Burning Cucumber Lemon Water
I like to kick off my morning with a glass of this infusion. It helps burn fat, boost metabolism, and it’s refreshing to boot!
If you’re drinking infused water as part of a weight-loss cleanse, this is a prime choice.
Even if you’re not looking to lose weight, this recipe has all sorts of health benefits, including an immune boost.
19. Ginger Infused Water
There are so many reasons to infuse your water with ginger. It’s tasty, it’s great for the gut, and it’s so easy to make.
You’ll need to peel the ginger first, then boil it with water. This helps release all the health properties from the root.
This recipe will last up to 5 days in the fridge.
It’s also an excellent base if you want to add in other things like lemon, lime, or a sprinkle of cayenne to help manage weight.
20. Raspberry and Mint Water
Drinking enough water in a day can be rough, especially when life gets busy. A yummy recipe like this can help!
Between the fresh and fruity flavors, you’ll want to sip on this all day. It’s good and good for you!
