55 Summer Fruit Infused Water Recipes For Weight Loss
1. Cucumber Melon Detox Drink
What better way to prepare for summer than with a detox drink? Sorry, I meant a detox drink WITH FRUITS! This recipe, fortified with SkinnyM’s amniotic fluid, is a detox drink, but that doesn’t mean it’s loaded with ingredients or filled with powders. This detox drink requires a total of six ingredients, all of which are natural. Also, the melon part of the recipe can be interpreted. If you want to use cantaloupe, choose it. If you want to use honeydew, go for it. If you want to use my favorite watermelon, go for it.
2. Watermelon Agua Fresca
Speaking of watermelon, this Agua Fresca from What is Gaby Cooking? is delicious! Before I came across this recipe, I actually had no idea that Agua Fresca was basically just water and fruit.
For this recipe, I sometimes choose to refuse the sugar. I’ve even traded it for honey once before! No matter how you choose it, you will love it!
3. Water enriched with fruit
Damn yummy Maybe the title made their recipe easy, but the recipe’s flavors are far from easy! They’re sweet and insanely refreshing thanks to the fruits the recipe calls for:
4. Strawberry and basil water
Okay, you may already know that, but berries are my favorite fruit. Blueberries, blackberries, cranberries, strawberries, raspberries … I can’t pick just one. You are all too good! With that said, you could probably put each berry in water to make me like it, but this strawberry basil water recipe from us is truly AMAZING.
How should i know Well, when a four year old takes your water bottle and is done with it, you know.
5. Chia and Acai Fresca
I’m always looking for new ways to incorporate chia seeds into my meals. They’re just so good for you, and since they’re tasteless, they can really get tossed into so many things! That being said, I was a huge fan of this recipe with infused water from Green kitchen stories before I even try. Then after trying I became an even bigger fan! So delicious!
6. Homemade electrolyte drink for POTS
Whether or not you have Postural Orthostatic Tachyardia Syndrome (POTS), this recipe with infused water from A cheeky kitchen is delicious! The flavors of orange, lime, and lemon scream “Summer!” While the drink itself acts to hydrate.
7. Morning Lemon & Mint Detox Water
I love, love, love to start my day with a big, cold glass of water with both lemon and mint infused. It really makes my body work properly while getting rid of any toxins. And let’s not forget how metabolic it is! Hello, weight loss promoter!
8. Cantaloupe and cucumber water
Rachel Cooks isn’t wrong when she says that the taste and refreshing properties of her cantaloupe and cucumber waters aren’t the only good things about it. Each glass is also super pretty and colorful! You can’t go wrong adding bright greens and oranges to a summer day!
9. 5-Ingredient Blackberry Limeade
As you might have guessed from the name, this recipe is from Jessica in the kitchen only requires 5 ingredients. What I love most about this summery water recipe is that it is naturally super cute! It doesn’t contain any fancy ingredients – just blackberries, limes, basil leaves, water, and coconut sugar for that extra sweetness!
10. Clean cucumber lemonade
Lemonade is one of the ultimate summer drinks. Unfortunately, some sodas are much more unnatural, sugar-filled products than lemon. Our lemonade is not one of these recipes.
In fact, it’s more water and more lemon than anything else. It’s really just water with fruit juice – lemon juice! It’s sweetened with a touch of honey, then added a little cucumber for an upgrade!
11. Lemon-ginger-peach sprinkle
This recipe was created by Table for two and it’s a whole new take on your traditional infused water. The basis of this recipe is really a mixture of water and kombucha (AKA the best drink ever). Kombucha has so many great nutritional benefits such as:
- Helps digestion
- Helps you lose weight
- Lowers cholesterol levels
- Boosts immunity
- Promotes good intestinal health

12. Strawberry and thyme mood booster infused water
Really, who doesn’t need a mood booster? I know i do! I could have the best day ever and I would still say yes to anything that has mood-enhancing properties. Plus, in summer I just want to smile and play around in the sun. Yes, I will always be a child at heart.
That being said, I think it would be just silly if you didn’t want to lighten your mood too. And why not use this recipe for infused water from whitening? Eating bird seed?!
13. Grapefruit Jalapeno Metabolism Booster Infused Water
I think I love metabolism boosters as much as I love mood boosters! Actually, I like to think that when my metabolism is boosted, my mood rises. So, if you like grapefruit and jalapenos, this metabolism and, therefore, mood lifts through Eating bird seed is just right for you!
14. Rosemary Raspberry Recovery Booster Infused Water
Eating bird seed clearly loves giving us all a boost and I love that she does! She actually has six fruit-infused water recipes that kick-start in different ways. This is number three on this list.
As I said earlier, berries are my favorite fruit, and since this recipe calls for raspberries, I have to say this is my favorite fruit among the six!
15. Blueberry Basil Skin Booster Infused Water
Remember when I said that Eating bird seed Rosemary Raspberry Recovery Booster Infused Water (above) was my favorite of their fruit-infused water recipes because it calls for berries? Well then I tried this recipe … and loved it!
Let’s just say it has to be a tie!

This detox water of ours is my mom’s favorite detox recipe. Come on and think about it, it’s the only detox water I’ve ever seen. The reason for this is very simple: grapefruit. Lots of grapefruit and lots of taste!
19th Lavender lemonade
This lemonade made by Well coatedis really just lemon-infused water on steroids. By adding lavender flavors you are also adding the perfect extra to brave the heat!
20. Strawberry and pineapple punch
Infused sparkling water is still infused, right? Correct! I mean why not? The only difference is that one is carbonated and it is so much better for you than the harmful but popular carbonated drink everyone drinks: soda.
So leave the soda behind you this summer and get some of it What is Gaby Cooking?Strawberry Pineapple Punch!
21. Blueberry Mint Lemonade
This recipe also from What is Gaby Cooking?is perfect for adults and children (without the optional vodka, of course). I mean, what kid doesn’t love cold lemonade on a hot summer day? It’s great for parents because not only will your child be drinking a homemade lemonade that is free of unnecessary and unwanted ingredients (and based on water), but your child will also be drinking a homemade lemonade that is loaded with and infused with nutrients Blueberries!
Plus, you don’t have to be a kid to enjoy this fruit infused drink. It’s healthy and nutritious for all ages!

This SkinnyMs Fruit Infused Water Recipe is just like all of the other recipes on this list when it comes to promoting weight loss. To lose weight, you need to drink water – and lots of it!
Now I know that not everyone likes water. Trust me, I’ve been with my boyfriend for over five years and have never seen him drink a whole bottle of water. He much prefers to chug bottle after bottle of lemonade or iced tea. So whenever I can, I’ll either make him this lemonade recipe or one of the others on this list so he can get some water on his body! Now I’m not doing this because I think he should lose weight. I do it because I want him to be healthy.

27. Lemongrass Iced Tea Green Tea
Iced tea is a big summer favorite and since tea is really just tea bag-infused water, I can put some iced tea recipes on this list, right ?!

Unfortunately, my mother is a soda lover. Yes, as much as I hate soda and how bad it is for our bodies, she just loves it! After years of trying to get her to stop drinking, I finally found something that works: sparkling water with fruits.
This SkinnyMs recipe is one of their favorites! I remember the first time I did it for her. We were in her kitchen trying to get starters together for my little brother’s birthday party that we held in the back yard. It was August and it was hot. She reached into the refrigerator and I winced when her hand came out with a bottle of Diet Coke.
“Wait, Mom, I have something to drink for you to try. Put that back!” I demanded.
She sighed and did what I said. I opened this recipe in five minutes and in just five minutes she poured herself another glass!
