Next Level H2O — 45 DIY Infused Water Recipes


We’re always trying to find easy ways to put more nutrition and healthy living into our lives. It’s hard to be a fitness and wellness rockstar, but it’s actually pretty easy to at least make an effort.

A really hot, easy, and healthy trend is infused water. We did the grapefruit and mint water this morning.

  1. I bought a nice big water jug like this one. There are some affordable plastic ones, but I like glass because it’s easier to get it really clean and sanitized. Plastic can retain odor and stains. Yuck.
  2. I cut up three red grapefruit and squeezed the juice into the jug, then dumped the grapefruit in.
  3. I cut up and crushed about 25 mint leaves. Crushing the leaves helps release the wonderful mint oil, therefore increasing flavor and nutritional value.
  4. I then emptied two one-gallon jugs of Ozarka Spring Water into it (about a dollar a jug at Walmart) and added a few cups of crushed ice.
  5. I put the jug on the kitchen counter-top and we’ve all been filling our glasses every time we walk past. Another option (and the reason I bought that particular jug) is putting it on your tall shelf in the fridge.

I went to the store and looked for what’s on sale before deciding what flavor to do today. The key to doing this frugally and effectively is working with fruit that’s in season.

Also, if you are going to use a lot of mint, rosemary, or basil, consider buying the plants at your local nursery or a place like Home Depot of Walmart and re-potting them. It’s quick and easy. They’re about $4 or less per plant, are easy to keep alive, and will give you months of free herb!

We try to use fresh herbs and fruits/veggies usually, but in some of these recipes/images, frozen berries were used.

I’ve scoured the internet for the best recipes I could find. Below are some great ways to get more hydration into your life, and with the bonus of some awesome natural flavors and nutrients, you’re off to a better start every day!
