Herbed and Fruited Waters for a Change of Pace

Summer is just around the corner which means it’s time to stay hydrated!  But who wants to drink plain boring water?  While it does offer some amazing hydration, it’s, well, plain!  So I’ve been trying out some amazing combinations of flavors, with herbs and fruit, to bring you a great assortment of Herbed and Fruited Waters.  There are so many ways you can use what’s in your herb garden or herbs from the farmer’s market, mixed with fruits.  They are flavorful and healthy, and really make you want to drink more water!

Strawberry Lemon Basil:

Strawberries have a pretty high concentration of vitamin C, as well as amazing flavor, lemon adds in electrolytes, and basil is super high in vitamin K, an essential nutrient for bones and blood clotting.

Pineapple Mint:

Pineapple is great for reducing inflammation, and both pineapple and mint work to aid in digestion.  Try this fabulous combination anytime your tummy is off, or after a big barbecue.  Pineapple is also amazing with basil.

Citrus Ginger:

Citrus has vitamin C, boosts electrolytes, and adds a great fresh flavor, while ginger has antioxidants galore and reduces inflammation.  The combination is bright and looks great in a glass.  Remember to peel fresh ginger and slice it for the best results.

Raspberry, Lime, and Mint:

Raspberries lend a bright sweetness that is full of antioxidants and help detox the body.  Lime has folate, a necessary nutrient for women, while mint adds a delicious flavor and belly taming properties.

Grapefruit Rosemary:

Grapefruit is great to boost your metabolism and your vitamin C levels.  Rosemary, besides being delicious, contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidants, plus it helps with digestion, making it a fantastic addition to your water.

Making the Most of Herbed and Fruited Waters

When you go shopping, look for organic fruits and herbs.  The skins of many fruits absorb chemicals that are sprayed on the plants, and that’s probably not something you want to be drinking.  Give them a good wash or scrub with a soft brush to get off any dirt.  Peel the ginger and slice for the best flavors, and you will love your Herbed and Fruited Waters.  Try different combinations to make your favorite flavors, and you can even freeze some fruit or herbs in ice cubes for a long term flavor boost.  Any way you make them, Herbed and Fruited Waters will turn your plain old water into something flavorful and amazing.

  3. I have thought about getting a water fruit infuser. It looks like though you can just cut up your fruti and put it right in the water? Thanks for this post. I am already making some fruit water like this and will keep doing so.

  4. Hi there! Stopping by from the Mommy Club link party. I love all your combinations! During the summer, I usually have a pitcher of cucumber mint water in my fridge. Thanks for sharing!

    Can you tell me the quanity of herbs and fruit I should add to a half gallon of filtered water? Would I double the herbs and fruit for a gallon of filtered water? I plan on serving the strawberry and basil water at an upcoming baby shower and would love to know the recipe. Thanks for the post!

  6. I will be planting indoor herbs in the next couple of weeks and I love this idea! Like my winter time fruit teas only spring and summer friendly!
