Delicious Water Infusion Combinations You'll Love

By Jenny Craig

We all know water is good for you! It’s a great tool to support healthy weight loss as it’s the ideal calorie-free alternative to sugary sodas, juices and other high-calorie beverages.

But, we get it, your bottle filled with plain H20 can taste a bit boring after the third refill, especially when your taste buds are craving something sweet and refreshing. So instead of reaching for a soda that could derail your weight loss goals, stay on track by infusing your water with fruits and herbs. Grab a pitcher of water, wash and chop your favorite fruits, herbs and even veggies, and let the flavors meld and infuse your water overnight in the refrigerator. Check out these seven delicious water infusion combinations to make each sip bursting with flavor.

Mock Mojito

Create a mock happy hour by infusing your water with mint and lime. In a pitcher, muddle a handful of mint and add one sliced and squeezed lime. Then, fill your pitcher with water and place in your refrigerator overnight for guiltless mojito flavor at 5 in the afternoon.

Sunny Citrus

In a sunny mood? Slice various citrus fruits, including grapefruit, oranges and lemons, and add them to a pitcher of water for a citrus drink that is sure to boost your mood (and your vitamin C)!

Basil Berry

Fragrant basil, combined with a handful of fresh, lightly crushed raspberries combine for a flavorful drink that’s like a springtime dessert.

Melon Mint

Summertime is just around the corner and when you combine the refreshing flavors of watermelon and mint it makes a refreshing treat. Add 4 cups sliced melon to 2 quarts of water. Refrigerate, allowing the flavors to infuse, then strain. Make it a melon masterpiece by also trading some of the watermelon for honeydew and cantaloupe.

Spicy Strawberry

For south of the border flavor, add 1/2 seeded, sliced jalapeno and combine with a handful of chopped strawberries and a 2-quart pitcher of water. Afraid of the heat? The sweetness of the strawberries will balance out the spiciness of the pepper.

Pear and Plum Pie

For chillier days, the flavor combination of cinnamon, plum and pear infuses H2O with a tantalizing scent of a pie baked in early autumn. Wash and cut one plum and one pear and combine with one to two cinnamon sticks in your water pitcher. Let the beverage infuse for several hours to marry the flavors.

Berry Good

For a sweet drink, add 1 cup of every berry you love to your 2-quart pitcher of water, including antioxidant-rich blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries. For an extra-refreshing twist, peel and thinly slice half of a small cucumber to infuse with your berry mixture.
