Strawberry, Peach, + Mango Infused Water.

It’s officially consistently warm here in NYC so it’s time for me to begin making infused waters for my household. Although there is a major craze with infused water for various reasons such as weight loss, detoxing, beauty trends, etc., I usually infuse my water with fruit so that I can get a bit of flavor without adding unhealthy juices or sugars. I’ve found that it has definitely been a great way to stay hydrated during the hot months and I’m using it to get my little guy to love more water. He’s definitely at that stage where sweets seem a lot more appealing. It’s a real struggle daily! Haha!

Anyway, I usually make my infused waters in mason jars, but this time I chose to use a large jug so that we could get a few drinks before having to make a fresh batch. Please note: it’s best to consume your water within 2 days (3 at most) since the fruit can become bitter after awhile.

Well, there’s not really much ingredients to build a recipe, so all you’ll need is: a gallon or so of water (or whatever size you are making it for), a few cups of fruit (whichever fruits are your favorite), you can add a bit of lemon juice if you’d like more of a detox effect, and whatever else that you choose. Many other recipes add vegetables, other fruit, herbs, you name it. After all, it depends on your reasoning for making infused water, especially since there are so many different benefits to this, such as:

  • Improves your mood.
  • Flushes toxins from your system.
  • Fills you up so you don’t eat as much junk.
  • Naturally helps your body release fat cells for water weight loss.
  • Keeps food moving through your system.
  • Keeps your organs healthy while you’re sweating.
  • Reduces muscle fatigue while working out.
  • Helps you recuperate faster from a workout.
  • Keeps you from feeling groggy in the afternoon.

After you place fruit in your water, just refrigerate for 2-3 hours (or longer for a more potent flavor) and you got yourself infused water!
