  3. terrie53 says:

    Making these tonight. Silly question as i am new to this, how long can the fruit stay in the water….I also would like to make 2 or 3 gts… is there any suggestions on that as well? Thank You, Terrie

    • Audrey says:

      Terrie, the fruit can stay in the water for about 2-3 refills. When it starts to lose its flavor then change it out. Cheers!

    Hi. I’m new to this. Your recipes look delicious. And your weight loss tips are very helpful. My question is should I stick to 1 infused water at a time for the day or I can drink as many types In a day???? My main focus is the weight loss and the detox

  6. Donna says:


  7. Nicole Cordes says:

    Do you eat the fruit once the water is gone (for the ones with berry like fruits)?

  8. Mary beverley says:

  13. Georgianna Kendrick says:

    I just finished my strawberry/peach infused water. Love it, love it! Going to try strawberry/kiwi next! Don’t know why I’ve waited so long to try it!!!

  14. Shannon says:

    I have been very ill for several years but 2years ago I had surgery and became septic. After 17 surgeries, I have very strict physical restrictions so my normal methods of weight loss are impossible. After coming across this site, I decided to give it a try. Couldn’t hurt.I did the.lemon, strawberry mint detox and kept a close eye on my caloric intake and by the next day, not only did I feel refreshed, but I had so much more energy! I have lost 5 pounds in one week and feel so much healthier and happier. Thank you so much for opening up anew door.

  15. Joyce Wagner says:

    Thanks for sharing your story. It validates that this method works. I am so sorry for all the illness and surgery you have endured. It sounds like you are on the road to getting well now, and that is wonderful!

  16. Heosig says:

    Are these drinks safe to drink daily?

  17. swgy says:

    I wondering if the infused water can last longer such as 2 or 3 days?

    • Audrey says:

      I wouldn’t keep the fruit infused water longer than 2 days as the fruit starts to turn bad, and I would definitely keep it in the refrigerator.

  18. MARIA says:

    My kids have been asking if they can try my infuse water. I have told them no , seen there small , I don’t want to bother theirs tummy. but is there a receipt I can try that my kids can try.

    • Audrey says:

      Maria, as long as they are not allergic to the fruit you are putting in the bottle, they should be ok to share your infused water. Our year old loves infused water and drinks it all the time.

  19. Alba says:

    Can i drink infused water if i am breastfeeding?

    • Audrey says:

      Alba, as long as you’re not allergic to the fruit you are using in the water, it should be safe to drink fruit infused water while breastfeeding.

  20. francina says:

    I put tangerines, cucumber grapefruit,an ginger… too strong an bitter…don’t want to add suger what to do..?

    • Nicole says:

      Not an expert here, but I would advise either removing the ginger or only leaving it in for a bit. The ginger has the most powerful taste of your listed ingredients and a little goes a long way. hope this was helpful(:

    • Monica says:

      Take out the ginger would be my best thing to tell you

  30. Patti says:

    I heard today cucumber infused water is great for your skin, is it the combination of infusing it into the water, because I know what is good for everything:) and is there any other benefits for cucumber infusion for as well?

  31. Sonia says:

    I find boiling water with apples and cinnamon and letting it cool down on the side really enhances the flavoured water! It’s so great the taste, better than those bottled waters.

  32. Archana Ray says:

    Its amazing to lose weight by drinking infused water. Do we need to boil the water with fruits or just put the fruits in a jar and pour plain water? Please reply.

  33. Scott says:

    Is there a certain size the fruit should be when slicing? Also, I made a drink today with Strawberries, Kiwi’s, and Cucumbers; but only taste the cucumber. Why is that?

    • Hope says:

      Cucumbers release their flavours much quicker than kiwi or especially strawberries. You probably just didn’t let it soak long enough

  34. Barbara says:

    I used Southern Breeze Sweet Tea bag (no sugar, Splenda) and orange slices in my bottle and it was great! I bought my tea bags at Walmart.
