This is my new favorite drink! This Lemon Water with Blueberries and Mint recipe is REALLY yummy and packed full of wonderful vitamins and antioxidants. You’ll be giving your weight loss a boost with Vitamin C since it helps regulate the hormones that cause fat storage.
The blueberries are not only good for your heart, they help fight cancer and are an anti-inflammatory “superfood”.
The lemon is good for weight management, improved digestion, appetite control, and also helps fight bloat.
Mint helps boost your energy levels and helps you burn fat faster, making this a great drink for weight loss. Make this Lemon Water with Blueberries and Mint for your next gathering, or take it in a fruit infusion bottle to sip all day long for a day full of delicious, weight loss boosting, fruit-infused water.
For this recipe, we decided to use our new Decodyne Fruit Infusion Pitcher that our friends at Decodyne sent us to try out. This fruit infused pitcher worked great, and we really liked the stylish design and ample water capacity.
The infusion chamber is the right size for the amount of water that it holds, so you get lots of great-tasting fruit infused water with a pitcher that also looks great on a dinner table.
- 1 lemon, thinly sliced
- 1 cup blueberries (frozen is ok!)
- 10 mint leaves
- 2 cups of ice
In a large pitcher, add the lemon and blueberries. Over the pitcher squeeze and slightly twist the mint, do not tear apart you only want to gently release the oils, add the mint leaves to the fruit. Top with ice and water. Let the pitcher sit in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.
When the water is down to 1/4 full in the pitcher, refill with water and place back in the fridge. You can do this several times. Store this Lemon Water with Blueberries and Mint in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

- 1 inch Ginger Root, peeled and sliced
- 1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too
To peel the ginger uses the back of a spoon or a vegetable peeler, just peel the part that you will be using. Using a sharp knife slice ginger into 3-4 coin-sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of the coin.
-Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.
-Top with 3 cups of ice and then add with water. (the ice is important, it holds down the ginger and mango to help infuse the water)
-Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.
-When serving add a couple of frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes.
Mango Ginger Water will keep in the fridge for 24 hours.
You can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so if I can’t get mangos in the season I can still always have some in the house. Plus they are like little ice cubes here, fun! I highly recommend you use fresh ginger, the powdered just does not taste the same and will clump in your water. Check your farmer’s market or the produce section of your grocery store for ginger, you can store it in the freezer to make it last longer.
