Fruit Infused Water: Benefits and Recipes

Drinking enough water is key to maintaining good health, but there are alternatives to plain water. One of the healthiest ways to give your water a kick is by infusing it with fruit, herbs and even vegetables.

To get the most nutritional value from your infused water, you’ll have to consume the fruit after you’re finished with the water. However, if you’d prefer to discard the fruit afterwards, you’re still reaping benefits by infusing your water in the first place. For example, if you have fun creating new recipes for your infused water, it could lead to more water consumption.

Here are a few recipe possibilities to get you started:

  1. Citrus Mint Water

By adding grapefruit, lemon, mint and cucumber to your water, you’ll get a combination of freshness and citrus that is perfect for a hot summer day. Grapefruit is known to be rich in antioxidants and immune-boosting properties, so snacking on some slices while you hydrate could give you additional health benefits.

  1. Mojito Water

Alcohol can dehydrate you, but you can satisfy your mojito craving with some non-alcoholic, infused water instead! With mint and lime, your water is transformed into a light, tart beverage. If you add a touch of sugar, your taste buds are really in for a treat.

  1. Apple Cinnamon Water

When you think apples and cinnamon, you probably think of autumn days and falling leaves. However, cinnamon is great for digestion, so infusing your water with apple and cinnamon is a great treat year-round. If you add plums and pears to the apples and cinnamon, it creates great balanced flavor.

  1. Ginger Peach Water

Ginger is a root with anti-inflammatory properties that can help with digestion. When ginger is combined with the flavor of a ripe peach, it’s like they’re a match made in heaven.

  1. Watermelon Basil Water

Nothing says “summer” like fresh watermelon. By throwing watermelon and some basil leaves into your water, it’ll be a beautiful mix of green and pink that tastes even better than it looks.

  1. Lavender Lemon Water

Lavender isn’t just a great candle scent. It’s also a natural way to add sweetness to your water. By infusing your water with lemon and lavender, you can create a unique flavor combination that can be made into lemonade with a bit of sugar or raw agave nectar.
