Infused water recipes for weight loss is one of the best ways to lose weight fast. Check out the 19 amazing infused water recipes for weight loss we have here to see for yourself.

If you have read my previous articles, you will know that I am a big fan of incorporating healthy ingredients in my cooking. This includes infused water recipes for weight loss.

In this article, I want to introduce you to the amazing health benefits of lemon water. The traditional lemon drink has always been refreshing and it always tastes good.

However, there are other flavors that taste really good when mixed with warm water. In this article, I want to introduce you to 3 great recipes for incorporating lemon and ginger into your weight loss diet.

The first of these recipes for infused water is called Ginger Beer. You will need two pints of fruit and three or four ounces of ginger ale (the stronger the better).

Next, you will combine all of the ingredients in a pitcher and fill the pitcher with ice. The resulting mixture should be enjoyed within ten minutes.

The second recipe that you might like to try is called Bellaccino's Amaretto Caramel. This is also a delicious flavor, which mixes well with icy cold drinks.

To create this recipe, you will need one gallon of low fat milk, one tablespoon of fresh Amaretto liquor, one tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, and two or three fresh Stilton lettuce leaves (to add a crisp, fresh taste).

Put all of the ingredients in a stainless steel pot and bring to a boil over medium heat. When the mixture starts to simmer, it will release its delicious flavor and will become clear as it cools down.

The third lemonade recipes for weight loss that I am going to tell you about today is called Bellaccino's Apple Cider Vinaigrette. If you love authentic Italian salad, you will definitely enjoy this recipe.

To make this delicious salad, you will need three quarters of a cup of apple cider vinegar, three or four fresh grated apples, two or three sprigs of fresh chopped ginger, and two or three tablespoons of olive oil.

Add all of the ingredients to a large saucepan and stir until the apples and ginger begin to blend. Cover the saucepan and place in the oven at 300 degrees and let the mixture stew for about ten minutes.

The next one of my summertime weight loss lemonade recipes for you is called Dannonalian Tomato & Basil Water. For this recipe, you will need four cans of soup tomato, two cups of skim milk, two teaspoons of fresh basil, and three or four kinds of basil.

Add all of the ingredients to a large pot and bring to a boil. Cover the pot tightly and add the soup to the pot and allow for the soup to simmer for about ten minutes. When the soup is done, remove it from the heat and mix in the milk and the basil.

The last of the fruit infused pitcher drinks that I will discuss is called Fruity Apple. For this recipe, you will need one can of whole fruit, approximately two pounds of carrots, one cup of frozen blueberries, two pinches of ground cinnamon, and three or four fresh lemons.

For this recipe, you will also need an electric hand blender. Combine all of the ingredients and pour them into a large glass filled with ice. After the mixture begins to slowly boil, turn the blender off and pour the mixture into a separate glass.

You may notice that I did not mention any apple juice in this is one of the best detox drink recipes for weight loss for the summer. Well, that is up to you if you want to add some apple juice to the mix.

It really does not matter because the fruits in this recipe will take care of themselves. After the mixture has completed its primary stage, you can add any flavors that you would like to enhance the flavor of the drink. Some good options include vanilla, mint, and even green tea.

Another great fruit-infused water recipes for weight loss is called Pomegranate Sparkling Water. This delicious recipe uses the tangy taste of the pomegranate to give you a burst of energy.

The recipe also includes a cup of tea that is made from matcha green tea powder. If you are looking for a summer recipe that has a tartness to it, then the pomegranate recipe for you.

If you are trying to find ways to lose weight without having to exercise at all, then you may want to consider using any of these infused water recipes for weight loss.

They are sure to be an effective way to help you drop those pounds and feel better when doing it!

  • 1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too

Get Started:

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)

8. Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink

The weather outside may be COLD, but this Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink will warm you up and help you lose weight! It contains fruits that are high in Vitamin C which are also big metabolism boosters!

One of my favorite combos is strawberries and tangerines, and this drink is delicious both hot and cold.

I recently came across dried strawberries, which means I can have this all year long but if you can’t find them don’t fret, just slice fresh or frozen strawberries and plan on using a fine-mesh sieve, coffee filter, or tea bag as they might fall apart.

Makes 1 pot of tea or 1 liter of cold drink.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup dried or fresh sliced strawberries
  • Rind of one tangerine- try to get little to none of the white pith
  • Water

Get started:

There are two ways to make Hot Strawberry and this Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink: 1) Put it all in the tea-pot, 2) Make individual cups. It all depends on your willingness to wash your tea-pot. I have also included a cold version of this delicious drink.

Teapot instructions- Place the tangerine rind and strawberries into a teapot, cover with water and bring to a boil. To serve cover the nose of your tea-pot with a coffee filter or use a fine-mesh sieve over your tea-cup to avoid strawberry pulp.

Individual tea cups- Boil water, add in 1/4 of the rind and a tablespoon of dried strawberries. Allow the strawberries to plump up and just as they start to fall apart (about 3 minutes) use a fork to scoop them out and discard them. Leave the rind in the tea-cup for both added flavor and beauty.

Make it cold- Boil 3 cups (or as much as your tea-pot will hold) of water making the “tea pot instructions” let it cool with the fruit left in then strain into a 1-liter jug discarding the strawberries. Top with water until it is full, pluck out the tangerine rind, rinse and add to jug then place in the fridge to cool. Serve over ice and drink up. If you want to do a bigger jug just double the recipe.

 

9. Metabolism Boosting Apple Pie Tea

With the days getting shorter and the nights colder, we’ve got a great hot fruit infused water recipe that will warm you up and tastes great too.

Now that the weather has turned cold I wanted to try a warm version of my favorite Apple Pie flavored drink and this was a perfect choice.

What you need:

(makes 2 liters)
  • 1 Fuji or another sweet apple thinly sliced
  • 2 Cinnamon Sticks (do not use powder it will not dissolve)

Get started:

You have two options, the teapot or teacup method.

For the teapot method, pile all the ingredients into your teapot, cover with water, and bring to a boil. Serve in a teacup or travel mug with an extra cinnamon stick to stir with if desired.

For the teacup method, place 1/4 of your apple slices and 1/2 a cinnamon stick to a teacup or travel mug, pour boiling water over the cinnamon stick and apples and let steep until cool enough to drink, 2-4 minutes. Refill teacup with hot water until the flavor is lost, at that time discard used fruit and cinnamon and add another 1/4 cup of your apple slices and another 1/2 cinnamon stick.

This Apple Pie Tea recipe is part of the Metabolism Boosting chapter of our cookbook Fruit Infusion: A Collection of Day Spa Inspired, Fruit Infused Waters.

10. Fall Fruit Infused Water with Pears, Cranberries, and Clementines

Fall is in the air. Trees are changing, the air is getting cooler, new TV episodes are on, and football is back. In honor of my favorite season, I have created this delicious Fall fruit infused water to drink!

This unique recipe is so delicious and refreshing. It has a bite from the allspice berries which is then mellowed by the sweetness of the pears and clementines. It’s not your typical “pumpkin-spice-flavored” Fall drink.YUM! I love this drink!

Questions about Clementines? They are just like tangerines and also called Cuties but you could easily replace with a juicy orange or blood orange for extra color.

Makes 1 pitcher, refill 3-5 times until flavor dissipates.

Ingredients:

  • 1 Pear thinly sliced
  • 1 Clementine Orange cut into 8ths
  • 1 tbsp. Dried Cranberries
  • 1 tsp. All Spice Berries (look like peppercorns)

Instruction:

Top w/ 1.5 cups ice and then fill up with water and let sit 3 hours in the fridge before drinking. The key here is to slice your fruit as thinly as you can so that you get the most flavor. If you want sweeter add an apple and another orange.

This will last in the fridge for 24-48 hours.

 

11. Ginger Orange Fruit Infused Water

Ginger Orange Fruit Infused Water not only boosts your metabolism but also is packed full of vitamin C to help you fight a cold. Plus the ginger helps with tummy aches, talk about power water!!

If you’re looking to lose weight or get healthy, but don’t know where to start I’ve got your answer. WATER! Put down the sodas, the fake flavor packets, and chemical packed additives, and just drink good clean water. “But I don’t like the taste,” you say? That’s OK, this drink is meant to help you put down the chemicals and go all-natural using delicious additives from nature.

The following recipe makes 1 liter, so if you have a 2-liter container double the ingredients, and so on.

Ingredients:

  • ½ orange
  • 1-inch chunk of ginger
  • ½ cup ice

Instruction:

Remove the skin from the ginger with a spoon or vegetable grater and slice into coin-sized rings. Add to the bottom of your pitcher.

Top with ice, this part is important whether you enjoy your water cold or at room temperature as it holds down the fruit to better infuse the water.

Place the pitcher in the fridge, or on your countertop if you like room temperature, for one hour before serving.

When you have poured ½ of the infused water from your pitcher, fill back to the top with water. This will help preserve the flavor so you won’t have to start over again when you finish the pitcher. Fill up, up to 6 times in a day, or until the flavor is lost.

Store in your fridge for up to 24 hours.

 

12. Day Spa Mango and Basil Water

l love Basil and use it in everything, it was just a matter of time before I put this Day Spa Mango and Basil Water together. It’s delicious, is a natural anti-inflammatory, and has natural antibiotic properties. Along with an overly sweet fruit like a mango this water is well-balanced and delicious.

Mangos aid in digestion, boost your memory, and increases your sex drive! Do I have your attention now? Try this out, besides being incredibly good for you, it is delicious and will help you drink more water.

13. Day Spa Pineapple, Grapefruit, and Apple Water

Did you know both grapefruit and apple boost metabolism and curb your appetite? I love foods that help me with my weight loss journey and these two are big ones. Top that with water also curbing your appetite and you have a great refreshing drink that works for you!

Use your favorite kind of apple I used a Green Apple because I wanted to play up the tartness of the grapefruit, if you like your drinks more on the sweet side use a Sweet Crisp or Fuji and use the whole thing. You can also squeeze the pineapple as you add it in, it might add between 5-10 calories to each glass but that is nothing! You burn 5 calories drinking the glass of water!

Makes 1 big pitcher, you can re-fill 3-5 times.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 Grapefruit
  • 1/2 Apple
  • 1/2 of a Pineapple- fresh
  • Ice and Water- Fizzy water is good too, just skip the ice.

Get started:

Cut the Grapefruit into medium-sized slices, same with the apple, and add into a pretty juice pitcher. Cut the pineapple into medium to thin slices, ideally you want to try and get all the slices about the same size. Add the pineapple squeezing a little if you want it sweeter, then top with 2 cups ice, top that with water, and place in the fridge for 4 hours. Once you have enjoyed 1/2 of your pitcher of water re-fill it and you can repeat this as long as the flavor stays.

I hope you can learn to enjoy flavored waters and put down sodas and fake sugar drinks like Crystal Light, Mios and Propel. Those are just chemicals, they are not good for you!

 

14. Cool and Refreshing Strawberry Lime Spritzer

On a hot summer day, this Strawberry Lime Spritzer will cool you right off! This is one of my favorites to have around the house all the time.

You can choose flat water or fizzy water, both work great! If you are trying to kick your soda habit you should go for a Strawberry Lime Spritzer. I think you will love the cool, refreshing taste and it will help curb your food cravings.

Like it sweeter? Add more strawberries and only 1/2 of a lime, adding more strawberries.

Makes 1-2 liters of Strawberry Lime Spritzer-

Ingredients:

  • 8 Frozen or Fresh Strawberries- See note above on freezing strawberries before making.
  • 1 Lime
  • 1-2 liters of Pellegrino or Club Soda- you can also use flat water

Instruction:

Slice the strawberries into three pieces and drop them into the water or fill an infusion pitcher, then slice the lime into 10 wedges and add to the water. Chill for 3-4 hours and serve, if you like, try making some strawberry and lime ice cubes if you are serving with flat water. In an ice-cube tray place one strawberry slice and a lime slice, cover with water, and freeze for 3-4 hours.

 

15. After Workout Watermelon and Rosemary Power Water

This delicious Watermelon and Rosemary Power Water helps hydrate you and maintains your fat burning after a workout.

Also, check out my Mango Basil Water and my Apple Cinnamon Water, one Boosts Metabolism and the other is a Natural Anti Inflammatory and helps Cure a Hangover. Can you guess which does what?

Makes one big pitcher, refill 3-5 times-

  • 2 cups Chopped Watermelon
  • 2 large Sprigs of Rosemary

In a large pitcher drop in the watermelon and rosemary, cover with ice, and then water. Place in the fridge for 10 minutes before serving. Once the water is 1/2 way gone refill with cold water, keep doing that 3-5 times before replacing watermelon and rosemary.

Makes 1 one-liter water bottle, refill 3-5 times-

  • 1/4 cup Thinly sliced Watermelon

16. Cooling Peach Mint Water

When it is hot outside, and I mean HOT you need something that will cool you off, Mint does just that! Plus water naturally cools you off, like free air conditioning, and suppresses your appetite to help you lose weight just like the peaches in this recipe. Can you think of anything better than to sit outside reading a book with some Peach Mint water? I feel relaxed just thinking about it.

This combo is light and refreshing, if you prefer it sweeter drop a couple of peach slices into your cup it really intensifies the peach flavor, you can also add a splash of vanilla to add sweetness to the pitcher as well. I use frozen peaches, the slicing, pitting, and removing of the skins is too labor-intensive for me, if you choose to use fresh peaches do all that, place in a bag, and freeze before making this.

Makes 1 pitcher refill up to 8 times

  • 1 long sprig of Mint, or a handful of leaves you can tie together with kitchen twine
  • 10 frozen Peach Slices, plus more to garnish (optional)
  • Water and Ice

I found that leaving the mint leaves on the sprig was easier and I got less debris in my drink that way too. Drop peaches in your pitcher, then the mint, top with ice and water, and place in the fridge for 4 hours or overnight. Serve in a wine glass*, garnish with a frozen peach slice (also acts as an ice cube) you can refill the pitcher up to 8 times, or until the flavor dissipates.

* I use this trick often, I place my water in a pretty wine glass or in my fancy Stella glass. If you try this you might just trick yourself into thinking you are indulging. My favorite thing to do it put fizzy water in my Tiffany Champagne Flutes, I feel like I am having my all-time favorite drink but it is zero calories and good for me.

 

17. Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water

Did you know both apples and cinnamon raise your metabolism? Try this now-famous Apple Cinnamon Water drink, and any day can feel like fall.

Fuji and Honey Crisp apples work best as they are the sweetest. Keep in mind this drink has a hint of flavor, should you want it stronger add more apples or slice them thinner.

The Original Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water Recipe was created by Audrey Johns, founder of LoseWeightbyEating.com and author of this website.
