If you have a difficult time getting in your water each day, because you aren’t a fan of plain water, then you need to try these infuser water bottle recipes in this post!
Infusing water with herbs, flowers, or fruit is a simple and delicious way to boost your water intake and get a few additional healthy vitamins and antioxidants into your diet. What I love most is that it doesn’t only taste good, but it is pretty to look at, which is encourages me to drink up!

Quick Tips to Boost Your Infuser Water Bottle Recipes
Before we dive into the recipes, there are a few things I want you to keep in mind that will help you enjoy infused water bottle recipes even more!
1 // Fruit
Slice thin so that their flavor infuses with the water quicker and better.
2 // Herbs
For leafy herbs, you want to slap the back of the leaf twice to help it release its delicious flavor!
3 // Shopping
When shopping for your ingredients, be sure to shop in season. Infusing water can get expensive if you aren’t conscious about the prices of your ingredients.
Since I’m currently moving into the fall season, the recipes I’m sharing are based on fruits that are currently in season for fall.

4 // Patience
Infused water is best when allowed to sit for at least 30 minutes. Some recipes are even better if left overnight before enjoying it.
5 // Refill
When infusing your water, you can refill your infuser water bottle with water to enjoy a second serving. It won’t taste exactly the same, but you still get a delicious flavored water.
I did this over the summer with strawberries and enjoyed infused water while running errands all day.

Have you heard the saying, “An apple a day keeps the doctor away”? Well add a cinnamon stick to the mix and you can prolong that even further.
3 // Refreshing Citrus Infuser Recipe
- 2 sprigs of Rosemary
- 3 slices of Clementine Orange
Rosemary is an amazing herb for so many reasons, including having high concentrations of Vitamin A, B6, and C. Its uses are endless, which is why it is my favorite to pair with clementine oranges that are also rich in Vitamin C.
4 // Cranberry Mint Infuser Recipe
- 1/2 cup of Cranberries
- 1/4 cup of Mint
This is an absolutely refreshing combination with amazing health benefits! Cranberries are known to suppress cancer growth due to being high in antioxidants. They are also effective in preventing urinary tract infections. [cranberry source] The mint is refreshing, but it also has a lot of health benefits as well. It helps calm the stomach, is relaxing, and helps with headaches.
Pairing these two together is a great way to increase your health and water intake!

Water doesn’t have to be plain or boring.
By adding in these fruits and herbs, you not only increase your water intake, but you also add nutrients to your water with infusing these ingredients.
The fun thing is when you take your infused water on the go and have friends ask about it! You not only have the chance to share about infused water, but also the importance of using a reusable water bottle over a single-use water bottle.
