How To Make Infused Water

Each of the recipes included in this post makes 1.25 liters (5 cups) of infused water. But do feel free to double or even triple the recipes, add ice and extra garnishes as you like.

Infused Water Recipe Instructions:

  1. Add the fruit and herbs to a pitcher or container, then pour in the water.
  2. For stronger more intense flavor, muddle or bruise the fruit and herbs using the handle of a spatula before adding to the container.
  3. Allow the water to infuse for a minimum of 6 hours and up to 12 hours in the refrigerator.7 glasses full of different flavored water

 

Chef’s Tip: slice and dice your fruits with a sharp knife at the last minute so that they are as fresh as possible.

Flavored Water Recipe Tips

  • The longer you leave in the fruit, the stronger the flavor gets. Alternatively, you can double the amount of fruit for more intense flavor.
  • Whilst these infused water recipes use fresh fruit, you can make infused water with some frozen fruit too.
  • After you have drunk about half your infused water, simply top it up again with more water. You get a milder but still delightfully flavored water.

And even more tips……

  • For the best tasting infused water, use it up within the first day or two.
  • Whilst these recipes use tap water, you can also make them with still or sparkling water according to your taste.
  • Serve this in lots of mason jars with plenty of extra fresh fruit dotted around for a pretty and colorful presentation.

Chef’s Tip: citrus fruits can make your infused water bitter if left in too long. So I recommend removing them after a couple of hours.

Fruit Infused Water – More Flavor Combinations

You can find even more delectable flavor combinations for making fruit infused water below. Have fun experimenting and adding in what you like. The sky (and your taste buds) is the limit. Whip up a big dispenser of

  • Grapefruit, basil and jalapeño infused water
  • Apple, oranges and cinnamon flavored water
  • Spa-inspired cucumber lemon water
  • Orange, cinnamon and cloves herbal water
  • Guava, mango and passionfruit flavored water
  • Strawberry, raspberry and lemon water

How Long Does Fruit Infused Water Last?

If you refrigerate your infused water then it should last for 3-4 days. Discard the fruit and herbs after a day. And remember to remove the citrus fruit much sooner so your water does not become bitter.

Can You Freeze Infused Water?

Great question and the answer is yes. You can make fruit infused water ice cubes. Simply remove the fruit and then freeze the water in an ice cube tray. You can then add the infused ice cubes to a wide variety of beverages, such as:

  • plain water
  • sparkling water
  • seltzer water
  • club soda
  • iced tea
  • mocktails
  • cocktails
  • fruit smoothies

Fruit Flavored Water Benefits

You may wonder about the benefits of drinking fruit infused flavored water. Well, there are plenty, but it is important to note that most of the benefits are to do with the water itself rather than the added fruit flavor.

Some of the benefits of making and enjoying fruit flavored water include:

  • Infused water tastes great and encourages you to drink more water. Win-win right?
  • Fruit infused waters are visually appealing and tempting enough so you won’t miss soda and other unhealthy drinks.
  • Drinking detox water, infused or not, may help you feel fuller and thus may reduce your hunger.

Infused Detox Water For Weight Loss

Drinking fruit infused detox water may help with weight loss (again this is down to the water rather than the fruit and flavours).

  • They taste great with zero calories and zero sugar.
  • Drinking water has been shown to increase your metabolic rate.
  • Keeping properly hydrated helps improve your digestive health.
  • Drinking water may help reduce your hunger as you feel fuller.
