    Fruit Infused Water

    Fruit Infused Water

    It’s officially triple digit temperatures here in Phoenix which means I hate life from now until about September! Hooray!

    One thing you learn really quickly when living in the desert is that you have to stay really well-hydrated. As soon as the hotter temperatures hit, you start seeing people walking around with huge gallon-sized jugs of water. We know we can’t leave the house without a big bottle of water.

    Sometimes I end up drinking so much water, that I actually start to get a little tired of it. We love sparkling flavored waters in this house so I started experimenting with my own fruit infused waters. I love these because they don’t contain any weird ingredients, food dyes, or any added sugar which makes it a much better alternative to sports drinks or sodas.

    Making your own fruit-infused waters doesn’t really require a specific recipe. You can make it in small or bigger batches and you can add as much or as little fruit as you would like depending on how much flavor and sweetness you want in your water. I am giving you some of my favorite flavor combos so far including raspberry lemon (which ends up tasting like lemonade), watermelon mint, mango pineapple (think tropical!), and citrus cucumber. I really encourage you to use your imagination here though! You can literally use any fruit except banana because, well, that would be kind of weird, no? Experiment with your favorite fruits until you find the best flavors for you and stay nice and hydrated all summer long without all the sugar and dyes!

    Prep Time: 10 minutes (plus chill time)


    Fruit Infused Water Flavor Ideas

    • raspberry (or strawberry) lemon - any berry paired with lemon ends up with a light lemonade flavor!
    • watermelon mint - super refreshing!
    • tropical (mango pineapple) - this one comes out sweeter than the others, but in a totally good way!
    • citrus cucumber (lemon, lime, orange, cucumber)
    • Other fruits to try: apples, honeydew, cantalope, blueberries, blackberries, peaches
    • Try fresh herbs too! Rosemary, basil, mint



    1. Add desired fruits to a pitcher and then fill with water. Allow fruit to soak for 2-8 hours in the fridge and then enjoy! You can add as much or as little fruit as you'd prefer. Add more fruit for more flavor and sweetness for your waters.

      I’ve tried cucumber and lime and it really enhances the taste of the water. I like the way you created yours with the vivid colors and nice jar!

      We’re coming up on triple digits here in Georgia, but not quite yet. Every year it makes me wonder why I ever moved south!

      Maybe we could take your triple digit temps and my 30 degree temps and combine them to come up with some reasonable spring weather!
      Love these different varieties for infused water!

      This is so pretty, and such a good idea! I love my water “straight” but know so many people who don’t.

      With these drinks you should just imagine yourself in a luxurious spa. No triple digits in mind.

      What an interesting way to stay hydrated and healthy at the same time! Personally, I’ve been making smoothies all day just to keep myself cooled off. I’m starting to get sick of smoothies though, so I might try doing this today. Thanks for sharing! – Alice

      Every time I use limes in on of these my drink ends up kinda biter due o the rind on it. Have you found a way to get over that or should I just regulaly peel the limes? I notice I don’ t have that issue with lemons or oranges though.
