Infused Nutrient Water


Cucumber, apple and mint

1 apple thinly sliced, 1/2 cucumber peeled, small handful of mint leaves

Watermelon and basil

2 thick slices of watermelon cut roughly into chunks, small handful of basil leaves

Pomegranate, ginger and lime

Flesh from 1/2 pomegranate, 1 lime thinly sliced, 2 – 4 fine slices ginger (to your liking)

Blackberry, orange, mint and ginger

Half punnet blackberries, 1 orange sliced, small handful mint leaves, 2 – 4 fine slices ginger (to your liking)


1 cup pineapple chunks, 1 lime, thinly sliced.  Consider making this coconut water for extra pop!


Use a mandolin to thinly slice or peel your fruit and veg

Gently crush the herbs in your hand to help release the flavour

Frozen fruit works just as well as fresh!

Prep time

10-15 mins

Cooking time

10 mins (will need to let it sit for at least 2 hours)


This recipe makes 5 cups of water (1.25L)


To make your infused nutrient water, start with 1.25L (5 cups) of water.  You can use sparkling or soda water if you prefer. 

Add and gently muddle your fruit in the water, add ice if desired.

Refrigerate for at least 2 hours to allow the flavour to disperse.  Remove any fruit and herbs after 24 hours.

Store your infused water in the fridge for up 3 days (if there is any left by then!)

Enjoy your water in a glass with ice and top up with additional fruit.  Or take it with you in your water bottle when you exercise.
