Fruit infused water

Fruit infused water – naturally flavored water that is not only easy to make, but healthy and delicious! It has a sweet and refreshing taste and has a cleansing effect on the body. Say goodbye to soda, juice and sugary drinks.

All you need to make your own fruit infused water is fresh fruit, herbs and water, of course. To me, these drinks just scream SUMMER! I am so happy it is warming up outside. Now we just need to remember to stay hydrated and drinks lots of water!

    I have been using the fruit infused water from blogilates and absolutely love it! Excited to try out pineapple with coconut water. I’ve been doing strawberry and blackberry and lemon mostly.

    Thank you for this post! I’m not really a fan of lemon in my water, but last night I was at a friend’s house and she had added an orange to the water instead and it tasted so good! I’ve also had water with cucumber, too and it is also refreshing! All of this fruit looks so good and we have mint that grows in our yard every year, so I think I’ll make these our go-to drinks for the summer!

    I have been looking for some good recipes for infused waters. These are awesome. I have actually been looking for infuser bottles but haven’t found any that I really like. I never thought about just using mason jars!

    Thanks Jamielyn for the cool ideas about fruit infused water. The coconut pineapple one really caught my eye. I can envision myself in a tropical setting sipping one of those. I liked the idea so much I pinned it.

    How long can it stay out after refrigerated? Should you replace the fruit each time you fill up the cup?
