Refreshingly Flavorful: Fruit & Flower Infused Water Recipes!

Whether you have just completed another successful round of Insanity, Zumba, or your personal work out regiment, savored something way too spicy, or simply cause with summer comes scorching temperatures, there is nothing that quenches your thirst and re-hydrates your body and soul, quite like water.

I know, I know. I hear people say it all the time ‘water is boring’. So I am here to motivate YOU to drink more water with an easy formula for making your own quick, simple, and healthy infused water with endless possibilities.

You can add tons of different fruits, vegetables, edible flowers, and herbs to make water taste delicious and unique. Fill up a pitcher, toss in a combination of your favorite fresh produce, and let it sit in the fridge for a few hours as the longer it steeps, the more pronounced flavor. Enjoy a glass of water kissed with subtle flavors; healthy, refreshing, and flavorful! Now for every party we have, I always create a batch of infused water, constantly experimenting with unique flavors.

  1. I definitely struggle to drink enough water especially in the summer in south central TX (don’t get me started on the humidity!). These recipes look fantastic and will make it so much easier to reach for a glass of water instead of something else! Thanks for sharing.
