Are you trying to kick the soda habit?  Or maybe you’re looking for healthier drink options for hot summer days?

I have just the thing for you!

Summer and warm weather is on the way and there is nothing better on a hot day than a refreshing glass of fruit infused water!  Ditch the soda and other sugar-filled drinks and whip up some fruit-infused water instead!

These recipes are sure to be quick, easy, and delicious.  And you’re body will thank you for choosing fruit and water for hydration 😉

 

Refreshing Fruit Infused Water Recipes

 

All of the recipes start with:

  • 2 cups of cold water
  • 2 cups of ice

Berry Blast

  • Strawberries
  • Blueberries
  • Raspberries
  • Blackberries

Add fruit in whatever ratio fits your taste.  Muddle fruit a little and let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours before serving.  Berries are full of antioxidants and flavor so feel free to drink up and enjoy!

Lemon-Lime

  • Lemon
  • Lime

This is a pretty basic recipe but it’s delicious. If you want a little kick you can add orange, mint, ginger, or any other combination of flavors you can think of!  Lemons are known to be a great detoxifier as well as refreshing (limes are too!).  Squeeze a little of the juice in, muddle the fruit, and let it sit in the refrigerator so that the flavors can perfectly combine!

Ginger, Honey, and Lemon

  • Fresh ginger
  • Raw honey
  • Lemon slices

This is a fun twist on a classic cold remedy.  I love these three ingredients as a hot tea when I’m sick, but having them together as a cold drink just tickles the taste buds!  Ginger can help reduce inflammation, raw honey has numerous health benefits, and lemon is a great detoxifier.  This drink is a healthy choice hot or cold!  Just add all ingredients in your preferred amount, let sit and chill in the fridge, serve and enjoy!  (Be sure to mix this one well before serving.)

Strawberry Mint

  • Strawberries
  • Fresh mint

Strawberries and mint added to ice cold water make the perfect refreshing fruit infused water.  Mix these two together with ice and on a hot day, you’ll have a hydrating and healthy treat!  Strawberries are high in vitamin c and antioxidants, help protect the heart and so much more! (Just make sure they’re organic.  Non-organic strawberries are covered in nasty chemicals.)  Mint has been found to be high in antioxidants and anti-inflammatory.  Health benefits abound with this recipe!

Raspberry Lime

  • Raspberries
  • Lime

This is another super simple fruit infused water recipe.  It may be simple but raspberry and lime together make a delicious flavor that needs nothing else!  Add raspberries and lime slices in whatever ratio you like, muddle a little and let the flavors combine while sitting in the refrigerator.  Raspberries are known to be high in vitamin c and antioxidants.  Limes can help keep arteries healthy, fight bacteria and parasites, and aid in digestion.  You’ll definitely want to put this recipe on your list to try! (For a different flavor try adding a lemon slice too!)

More Options

Fruit-infused water recipes often include the fruit listed above as well as watermelon, mango, pineapple, and any other you can think of.  Fun additions to consider include melon, rosemary, jalapeno, or basil.

The sky’s the limit so get creative and become a mixologist!  You might come up with the next best recipe 🙂

 

A Few Fun Suggestions

*If you don’t want to make a large amount or want to take it to go, check out glass infuser water bottles.  What a handy way to make and take naturally flavored water!

*You can pour the infused water into popsicle molds and freeze for a fun treat. I know from experience that kids, dogs, and chickens love them! (Just make sure that the fruit you use is pet-friendly, not all animals can have all foods.)

*You can also make the fruit infused water with sparkling water and enjoy a bubbly treat. Add your alcohol of choice to the infused fizzy water to make a healthier adult drink too!

No matter which recipe you choose or how you choose to customize it,  you can’t go wrong with fruit infused water.  These recipes are refreshing, full of health benefits, and so delicious!

Try a new one each week (or each day!) and you’ll be getting a wide range of healthy antioxidants, vitamins, and anti-inflammatory fruits into your diet along with possibly increasing your water intake.

Adding fruit and water and ditching soda or sugary drinks is a positive step toward good health and wellbeing!

  1. Hi Amy,

    I have recently lost my “perfect job” due to the
    covid-19 layoffs. I lost my Grandmother in June unexpectedly. Before I found my great job I was at an awful one that caused me daily stress, severe panic, etc. I have gained 50lbs since June 2019. I also found out that I am “Peri-Menopausal” and am having severe hot flashes. I am on a list of medicines that I know are not good for me. I know that something more is going on. I fit every criterion for Adrenal Fatigue and I don’t know where to start. Everyone looks at me like I am making up excuses for my unhealthy sedentary life. So far I have loved your posts and started the fruit-infused waters, they are great. Can you tell me what exactly I should be taking as far as supplements?

    1. Hi Monica,

      I’m so, so sorry to hear about your Grandmother’s passing and your job loss. Stress and hormone imbalance can make wreak havoc and cause so many health and emotional issues. I can totally understand and relate to you feeling that something more is going on and that people don’t believe you. But please know, I absolutely believe you!!

      I can’t give specific instructions for supplements though for two reasons. One, I’m not a doctor and therefore cannot give out medical advice. And two, your needs are individual to you.

      I can tell you what has helped me though, and hopefully, it will help you too 🙂

      1. Finding a functional medicine doctor that actually listened!
      2. Getting the right tests
      3. Remedies and supplements specific to my personal needs
      4. Changing my diet and eliminating food intolerances

      And last but certainly not least (in fact, it might be THE most important) adding rest and relaxation to my day in the form of meditation, gentle yoga, EFT, and a lot of days even a short nap.

      If you are interested I can send you a list of tests that I found really helpful. Maybe that could help you narrow down some of what is going on and help you find your next step 🙂

      Feel free to email me at [email protected] and I will send it to you right away!
