Got your shiny new infuser bottle or pitcher all picked out or ready to go? Here are some of our founder Jen’s favourite water infusions (in no particular order)!
This recipe comes with a cool video, though making infused water is fairly straightforward. You’ll need kiwi, cucumber, water, an infuser bottle or pitcher, and patience (infused water needs to sit for a couple of hours before drinking).
Note: The kiwi and cucumber will need to be peeled and cut into pieces before infusing.
Food Network’s recipe has you add cubed watermelon and mint directly to a pitcher, let it sit, then strain out the solids before serving. Using an infuser bottle or pitcher will make an already simple recipe even easier! They also give a fun option for a ‘bubbly’ infused water with the addition of seltzer water.
If you’re really looking to switch up your hydration game, you’ll like this recipe – it uses coconut water instead of ‘regular’ water. Coconut water is the liquid that comes out of a freshly cracked coconut (or you can buy it in a carton) and it contains all kinds of nutrients and natural electrolytes. This particular recipe also calls for mango but mango isn’t everyone’s thing, so feel free to replace it with mint (or use both mango and mint… it’s YOUR infused water, after all!).
This infused water has all kinds of great health benefits, including a huge hit of Vitamin C from the oranges and antioxidants from the blueberries. You’ll need to remove the peel and seeds from the orange, then slice it up before adding to your infuser bottle/pitcher. You’ll also need to squish the blueberries a bit so the juice/flavour isn’t stuck behind the skin.
Lemon and ginger are both great for detoxifying and, as a bonus, they taste great infused in water! You’ll need to remove the lemon peel and skin the ginger before infusing.
