What better way to kick off summer than with some thirst-quenching and delicious infused water recipes? No really. Drinking water is so important for your health, skin and body, and getting the recommended amount (8 8-ounce glasses) is hard for a lot of us. But what if there was a simple way to enjoy all that water? Let me tell you, there is!
Infused water is the key to getting your daily water fix, and with so many amazing flavors, you’ll want to try a new blend every single day. The great thing about infusing water is that you can choose your absolute favorite ingredients to add in and sip away.
There are zero calories in infused water, and so many of the ingredients have health benefits that do so much good for your body. Infuse water with lemon and berries, and you have the perfect detox mix that will flush your system and taste amazing while doing so. Infuse water with ginger, pineapple, and orange and you have a drink that’s packed with vitamins and nutrients.
As the temperature rises and we find ourselves doing more outdoor activities, water becomes even more vital for our health. Try these infused water recipes using a fruit infuser bottle (we’re currently crushing on the LA Organics Fruit Infuser Water Bottle) before and after your workouts, on long weekend outings, at the beach, and bring them with you to keep at your desk to ensure you’re drinking enough water throughout the day!
Here are 11 delicious ways to stay hydrated!
1. Watermelon Cucumber Water (Stockpiling Moms)
For me, this infused water recipe has it all. Cucumber water is crazy refreshing, and with the addition of watermelon, it’s a match made in heaven. You could use either of these ingredients in water alone and it would be thirst-quenching, but why not add them together? Serve this blend when you have guests over and drink it after your workouts to hydrate!
2. Lavender Lemonade (Eat Yourself Skinny)
Did you know water could get this fancy? I sure didn’t. Lemons are a great way to detox your body, plus they help boost your metabolism. Add in some extra ingredients like lavender and honey, and you’ve got some vitamins, minerals, and a sweet taste that’s almost too good to be true.
3. Ginger and Lime Water (Fabletics)
Ginger is one of the most powerful superfoods on the planet! Seriously, it is SO good for you, from its anti-inflammatory properties to its ability to relieve digestive problems. If you’re ever feeling sick or nauseous, ginger should be your go-to! Add lime to the mix and you’ve got a super digestive water mix! Drink this one after your meals and combat that bloaty feeling.
4. Very Berry Lemon Water (Kendall Rayburn)
Anyone a fan of Starbucks’ very berry refresher? It’s one of my favourite drinks, and this infused water recipe mimics it, without the tea, and without the high price tag! Simply blend lemons, and a frozen berry medley containing strawberries, blackberries, blueberries, and raspberries, and you have a delicious, refreshing drink!
5.Fat Flush Detox Drink Recipe (Budget Savvy Diva)
A little bit of mint, a little bit of lime, and a little bit of green tea, this infused water recipe will flush and detox your body. Green tea is great for weight loss, while lime relieves aches and pains, and mints adds a nice sweetness to the mix. Drink it on any hot day to cool you down.
6. Refreshing, Nourishing Vitamin Water (Soup Addict)
There are better (and yummier) ways to get your daily vitamin fix than popping pills each morning. This water blend contains loads of vitamins, from grapefruit, which is high in vitamins A and C, to cucumber, which is packed with vitamins B5 and K, and so much more. This water recipe is packed with fruits that taste delicious and do your body good, so do yourself a favour and sip on it daily!
7. Strawberry Mango Water (That’s What Che Said)
What could be better than sitting out on your porch with some refreshing strawberry mango water? Both fruits offer a subtle, sweet taste that will have you coming back for more. Plus, there are tons of health benefits that come from adding strawberries and mangoes to water, including helping your complexion and lowering cholesterol.
8. Pineapple Orange Ginger Infused Water Recipe (This Mama Loves)
I’ve already sang ginger’s praises, but adding it to any water medley is sure to do you good. Pineapple is packed with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals including vitamin C, B6 and folate. And oranges are an excellent source of vitamin C, potassium, and more. The three ingredients together make for a delicious flavored water recipe that will see you through any summer event!
9. Fruit Infused Water (Simple Vegan Blog)
Infusing your water with tons of fruit is a great way to get lots of health benefits with a tasty drink. For this one, add in orange slices, strawberries, and mint leaves for a flavorful treat that tastes nothing like plain ol’ water. Yet, you’ll reap all the benefits of getting your water fix – it’s a win, win!
10. Kiwi Blackberry Infused Water Recipe (The Country Chic Cottage)
Kiwis are such tasty fruits, I love eating them on their own or atop smoothie bowls in the summer. And here’s another great way to get your kiwi fix! Add in blackberries, which have one of the highest antioxidant content of any fruit, and you’ve got a healthy and thirst-quenching water mix for the hottest summer days!
11. Raspberry, Rose Petal, Vanilla (She Who Eats)
This combination is heavenly. You’ll have to scroll down a bit on the page to see it, but it was too good not to add to this list. Just like a lovely tea, let the delicious ingredients steep, and strain them when they’re ready. The result will be an instant favorite!
With infused water, the sky is the limit. These are just 11 options, but you can mix and match ingredients to your heart’s desire. These blends are tasty, healthy, and will ensure you reach your water requirement for the day! Drink up!
