Lemon Water with Blueberries and Mint

Lemon water with Blueberries and mint

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 the 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 “super food”.

The lemon is good for weight management, improved digestion, appetite control and also helps fight bloating.

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.

Makes 2 Liters of Lemon Water with Blueberries and Mint
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • 1 cup blueberries (frozen is ok!)

Hot Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting Drink

Strawberry and Tangerine Fruit Infused Water

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 are 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 for this delicious drink.

Tea pot 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.

Strawberry and Tangerine Metabolism Boosting DrinkIndividual 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. 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.

Metabolism Boosting Apple Pie Tea

Hot Apple Cinnamon Water

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 the perfect choice.

What you need:

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

Get started:

You have two options, the tea pot or tea cup method.

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

For the tea cup method, place 1/4 of your apple slices and 1/2 a cinnamon stick to a tea cup or travel mug, pour boiling water over the cinnamon stick and apples and  let seep until cool enough to drink, 2-4 minutes. Refill tea cup 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.  It’s a colorful cookbook full of metabolism boosting, fat burning drinks,  teas, sodas and ice cubes. With over 40 recipes to choose from you and  your taste buds will never be bored with water again!

Fall Fruit Infused Water with Pears, Cranberries and Clementines

Fall fruit infused water

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 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 by a juicy orange or blood orange for extra color.

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

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

Top w/ 1.5 cups ice and then fill up with water and let sit 3 hours in 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.

Fall Fruit Infused WatersThis will last in the fridge for 24-48 hours.

Ginger Orange Fruit Infused Water

ginger orange water pitcher

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

Find more fruit infused water recipes here and at Lose Weight By Eating.

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

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

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.

Slice the orange into wedges or rings and add to your pitcher gently squeezing (just a little) to help release the juices as it sets.

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 counter top 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.

Day Spa Pineapple, Grapefruit and Apple Water

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!

Cool and Refreshing Strawberry Lime Spritzer

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-
  • 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.

Strawberry Lime SpritzerSlice the strawberries into three pieces and drop 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.
