Hello water lovers, today’s recipe aka Instant Pot Infused Water is all about you. Because we all know that drinking more water is good for us. But after a while, it can get quite repetitive and tempting to ignore.

This is where a healthy, naturally sweetened, great tasting and cheap infused water recipe becomes handy. The added benefit is that you can use up fruit and vegetables that are about to pass their prime, thereby reducing waste. And much easier to drink those recommended 8 glasses of water a day.

What is also great about Instant Pot Flavored Water or infused water, in general, is that the combination of flavours you can make is endless. I show you 4 infused water recipes but you can swap and change depending on what you have in your fridge or pantry.

My kids love whipping it up with me and guys, a huge jar full of pretty coloured Instant Pot Infused Water makes a great summer picnic, BBQ’s, Brunches or general drinks party centrepiece. Simply make your Instant Pot Infused Water ahead of time and let guest help themselves as they arrive.

And if you are a fan of cold drinks then why not try this Instant Pot Iced Tea (3 ways). I have got you covered.

How to Make Infused Water In A Pitcher or Jug

You can make regular Infused Water in a pitcher or jug or any suitable container.

Add the ingredients to the container and let infuse for a minimum of 6 hours and preferably overnight in the refrigerator.

Infused Water Tips

You can use fresh or frozen fruit for making infused water.

After you have drunk about half your infused water, simply top it up again with more water. You get a milder but still fruity flavour.

For a stronger flavour, you can mash the fruits in the Instant Pot before straining or muddle the fruit in the pitcher. (Keto dieters: this will cause the recipe to no longer be keto.)

Alternatively, for a stronger flavour, add more fruit.

How Long Does Infused Water Keep For?

If you keep your Instant Pot Infused water in the fridge then it should last for 3-4 days.

If you are doing Infused Water without the Instant Pot then please discard the fruit before storing your water.

Can You Freeze Infused Water?

Great question and the answer is yes. You can make infused water ice cubes. After straining the water, let it cool and transfer into ice cube trays and freeze. You can then simply add the ice cubes to some water, iced tea, mocktails, cocktails, smoothies and more.

For a more concentrated infused water ice cube, reduce the water by 1-2 cups when making your infused water in the Instant Pot. Play around with the quantities of water and see what you like.

If you are making regular Infused Water, please discard the fruit first after infusing before freezing.

Fruit Infused Water Benefits

You may wonder what are the benefits of drinking infused 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 flavour

They taste great and encourage you to drink more water.

They are tempting enough so you don’t miss soda.

Drinking water may help you feel fuller and so reduce your hunger.

Infused Water For Weight Loss

Drinking infused 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 or 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.

    Looking at this article, I miss the time when I didn’t wear a mask. bitcoincasino Hopefully this corona will end soon. My blog is a blog that mainly posts pictures of daily life before Corona and landscapes at that time. If you want to remember that time again, please visit us.

  4. Do you change your seal before making this infused water? I’m afraid it’ll end up tasting like all the savory food I’ve made.

    How fun! I never thought of using the Instant Pot to infuse water, but it makes so much sense. And I love that I can use up aging fruits this way too.

    Looking forward to trying the pear and cardamom combination. It sounds like it will be amazing in the fall!
