5 Great Infused Water Recipes to Help You Stay Hydrated

Drinking water has a number of benefits for our health. This is why doctors always recommend that you stay hydrated with water by drinking at least eight glasses a day. In order to stay motivated about hydrating, some people turn to infused water, which is simply adding fruits or vegetables to your water. Whether you’re looking to detox, help your digestive system, or add some flavor to your water, infused water is the way to go. Try infusing your water these five different ways!

1. Lemon, Cucumber, and Mint Infused Water

Naturally, lemons are great, they contain vitamin C and are an antioxidant. They are also a delicious flavor to add to just about anything! Cucumbers are an antioxidant, also, and they help to lower blood pressure! Mint is an herb you can use in food and water. Mint contains many nutrients such as vitamin C, calcium, and iron. It’s also great for your digestive system. It’s a no-brainer why these three combined can be very beneficial for you to clean your system while hydrating your body. 

The Recipe 

Preparation time: 5 minutes, 1 serving amount 

What you’ll need:  

  • 8 ounces glass of water
  • 1 whole lemon
  • 1 cucumber
  • 1 fresh mint bundle 

Start by washing your lemon off and then cut it into 2 halves, put one half to the side for later and cut the other half into 3 slices, set aside. Next, grab your cucumber, wash it, and cut 4 thin slices, set aside. Then, wash off your mint bundle and tear apart 3 leaves. Grab your glass of water and add the sliced lemons and cucumbers and mint leaves to the water, squeeze your lemon half and stir. Sit this mixture in the refrigerator for about an hour to let ingredients infuse before drinking. 

You’ll thoroughly enjoy this flavorful and delicious recipe. Some ZeroWater customers like filling their pitcher or dispenser with an abundance of lemon, cucumber, and mint-infused water to enjoy in bulk!

2. Orange and Ginger Infused Water

Everyone knows that oranges are full of vitamin C. When you were sick as a kid, your mom probably makes you drink a glass of orange juice to help strengthen your immune system. Ginger is another vegetable that offers great health benefits and is known to reduce blood sugar and help with digestion. When oranges and ginger are combined with water, it makes for a delicious and healthy drink that provides valuable nutrients for your body. 

The Recipe 

Preparation time: 3 minutes, 1 serving amount 

What you’ll need:  

  • 8 ounces glass of water
  • 1 orange
  • 1 peeled ginger root 

Grab your orange, wash it off, and cut four slices. Next, cut the ginger into small pieces, about two tablespoons. Add the orange slices and ginger pieces to your glass of water and put it in the fridge for an hour to infuse. After the hour is up, enjoy your drink! 

3. Basil and Grapefruit Infused Water

Basil is delicious to cook with, but also can make a delicious and healthy drink. Basil is an herb that is a good source of vitamin K and helps to improve blood flow and white blood cell count. Grapefruit is a low calorie fruit loved by low-carb and keto dieters. Whether any particular grapefruit is tart or sweet the nutrients and improved muscle function from grapefruit make this fruit a must-have in any diet. 

The Recipe 

Preparation time: 3 minutes, 1 serving amount 

What you’ll need:  

  • 8 ounces glass of water
  • 1 small fresh basil sprig 
  • 1 large grapefruit 

Begin by breaking three basil leaves off the sprig for your water. Then, wash away any dirt on your grapefruit and cut it into two slices. Take your basil leaves and grapefruit slices and add them to your eight-ounce glass of water, set aside for an hour in the fridge. When time is up, drink up! 

4. Kiwi and Raspberry Infused Water

Kiwis are sweet and raspberries tend to be a little tart; a semi-sweet infused water recipe. Kiwis are naturally sweet and often associated with weight loss along with grapefruit. Raspberries are also good for weight loss with low calories but high in fiber. These berries can help settle an upset stomach. 

The Recipe 

Preparation time: 3 minutes, 1 serving amount 

What you’ll need:  

  • 8 ounces glass of water
  • 1 kiwi
  • 5 raspberries

Kiwis are pretty small, so cut your whole kiwi into slices, not too big and not too small. Wash off 5 raspberries and add them to your water along with your kiwi slices. Put it in the refrigerator for 1 hour and then you’ll be ready to drink it! 

5. Strawberry and Mango Infused Water 

Probably the tastiest of these four recipes, mangoes contain plenty of minerals while being very sweet. It’s a good idea to only drink this infused water only a few times out of the week since the natural sugar in mangoes and strawberries is higher than most fruits. That being said, a moderate amount of strawberries can help with your cholesterol and maintain blood sugar. So it’s only right to put these two together to make a delicious and healthy sweet drink. 

The Recipe 

Preparation time: 3 minutes, 1 serving amount 

What you’ll need:   

  • 8 ounces glass of water
  • 4 strawberries
  • 1 mango

Wash any dirt off of the strawberries and cut each in half. You can remove the leaves if you want, they’re actually safe to consume. Take your mango and only cut about 3-4 slices, depending on the size of your mango. Put your strawberries and mangos into your glass of water, and put it in the fridge for an hour. Take it out later and drink up!

Drinking infused water has a variety of benefits. Each of these recipes has unique values to them and can add an extra boost of minerals and nutrients to your current diet. Proper hydration can help many health issues like digestive problems, high blood pressure, and more.
