Staying hydrated is a year-round concern, but when the weather starts warming up I’m constantly reaching for a refreshing glass of water. Luckily, it’s this time of year when lots of fruits and vegetables are in season, ready to fancy up our H2O. Infused waters are great for so many reasons. Flavored waters can entice those whose palettes yearn for sugary beverages, while also giving our bodies a boost of vitamins. The fact that they are gorgeous pops of color in our glasses doesn’t hurt either. So give your water a makeover with one of these 3 infused water recipes. Oh so delicious!

Strawberry and Cucumber Water

Strawberry Cucumber Water

The perfect blend of crisp, cool and a hint of sweet. Infuse this drink 4 hours in advance for maximum flavor and benefits. The strawberries and cucumbers help detox (similar to these superfoods), fight carcinogens and have anti-aging properties.

  • 1 cucumber cut into slices
  • 1 cup of strawberries, either cut in half or into fourths.
  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • 1/2 gallon pitcher

Grapefruit, Orange and Lemon Water

3 Infused Water Recipes

The most refreshing blast of citrus to start your morning. Lemon water is all the rage, but why not add a little more tart for your tastebuds. You can squeeze a little juice into the water and then soak additional pieces for added flavor. Infuse for 2 hours and enjoy. And bonus, any unused fruit can be part of your next citrus beauty DIY.

  • 2 lemon sliced
  • 2 orange sliced
  • 1 large grapefruit
  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • 1/2 gallon pitcher

Blueberry and Mint Water

Blueberry Mint Water

Think a heavy dose of antioxidants with this berry and mint cooler. It’s another great detox drink that has a fresh aromatic finish thanks to the mint. To make this one even more exciting, you can mix it with a sparkling water for a bit of bubbly. It’s your DIY version of those La Croix drinks we’re all obsessed with.

  • 1/2 a cup of mint leaves
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • Ice cubes
  • Water
  • 1/2 gallon pitcher

The best part? Once the water is all gone, you can eat the remaining fruit!

What’s your favorite infused water?
