Our weekly best infused water recipes
It’s hard to call these ‘recipes’ because whipping them up is super simple. All you need to make your own infused water is your water bottle infuser, a little creativity and a few extra minutes each morning. Here are our 5 best combinations:
1. Cucumber & Mint (for quenching the most intense of thirsts)
Slice one cucumber thinly and make sure to remove the peel if it isn’t organic. Add your cucumber slices to the water bottle infuser, add some muddle fresh mint leaves and fill the bottle with filtered water. Stir everything together and then give it some time to mingle in the fridge for at least 4 hours before consuming.
2. Strawberry, Basil & Lemon (for a sweet and tangy kick)
Thinly slice ½ cup of fresh or frozen strawberries and tear up 5 basil leaves. Next, slice one lemon into thin slices and then add all the fruit to your infuser bottle. Top it up with spring water and place in the refrigerator for 5 hours or overnight before using.
3. Blackberries, Orange & Ginger (for serious detoxing)
To make this infused water recipe, start by peeling and thinly slicing one fresh ginger. Next, thinly slice one orange and place it in your infuser bottle. Add ½ pint of blackberries and the ginger and then fill your bottle with water before giving it at least two hours to develop properly in the fridge.
4. Pineapple, Coconut & Lime (for an exotic taste)
If you’re dreaming of island vibes and a Pina Colada, this infused water recipe will hit the sweet spot. To make your guilt-free drink, grab some fresh or frozen pineapple chunks, of which you’ll need about 1 cup. Next, chop up 1 cup of fresh or frozen coconut chunks and then slice one lemon into thin slices. Add all the ingredients to your infuser bottle and refrigerate for four hours. Store this water in the fridge if you’re not enjoying it next to the pool!
5. Raspberry, Kiwi, and Peach Water
Think of this drink like Raspberry lemonade, but just better. You’ll need to wash and finely slice 15 raspberries and add them to your infuser bottle. Next, thinly slice one Kiwi and one half a Lime. Fill your bottle with water, stir gently and then refrigerate for four hours before enjoying your drink!
