Fruit Infused Water

Water infused with fruit, herbs and even vegetables makes a tasty, colorful, refreshing beverage. The D2d study encourages you to consider choosing infused water instead of a soda or other sugary beverages. The D2d Study team at the University of Southern California/LA Roybal Comprehensive Health Center suggests the following combinations and encourages you to come up with some of your own.


Strawberry, Orange, and Mint:

  • 1 Orange
  • 10 Strawberries, sliced
  • about 8-10 mint leaves

Raspberry, Cucumber, and Lime:

  • A handful of raspberries
  • 2 limes, thinly sliced
  • 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced

Blueberry Orange:

  • 6 cups water
  • 2 mandarin oranges, thinly sliced
  • handful of blueberries

Grapefruit, Cucumber and Mint:

  • 2 large grapefruits, thinly sliced
  • 1 large cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 4-8 mint leaves


In a large pitcher or container add the fruit and vegetables, gently squeeze, muddle or twist the herb leaves to release the oils (you do not want to tear the leaves), and place them on top of the fruit. Add ice and water and let sit in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours for the flavors to infuse.
