Infused Sparkling Water Recipes
Infused Sparkling Water Recipes! Sparkling water is magical. Infuse it with fresh produce and it becomes more magical.
Not only is the bubbliness fun and interesting to drink, but it's quite easy to infuse it with fruits and veggies and herbs, taking it to soaring heights!
Most of the combinations I recommend here push abundant nutrients into the water, including antioxidants, vitamin C, anti-aging Vitamin A and potassium in particular. Most also add anti-inflammatory properties, as well as actually prevent water retention (it's water, though, go figure!) and are strong detoxifiers.
Can I Make My Own Sparkling Water?
Yes! La Croix is life, right? But no one really knows what the flavor ingredients are. So why take a chance? I use awesome home sparkling water maker. Making it at home is much better on your wallet and the environment. Still, some of us do still want to buy it, so you do you! I do both, which ever fits my schedule the best.
Oh, and while we are talking products. I use this pitcher now. Not the one pictured. This one allows me to pour with the infused fruits/veggies within the water. It is incredibly convenient!
The addition of seltzer to infused water really makes already-special infused water, super special.
The infused sparkling water recipe featured here is Blueberries Lemon Zucchini and Dill - rich with antioxidants from the blueberries, vitamin C from lemon, anti-aging properties from the zucchini, and fresh flavor from the dill - put it all in seltzer water, and you have one bubbly refreshing pitcher!

Another favorite combo of mine is Kiwi Strawberries Cucumber. In this combination, kiwi acts as a great system purifier, strawberries provide strong anti-aging support, and cucumbers de-bloat and detox.
And here are even more combos I love:
- -Strawberry Mango Mint
- -Peach Ginger Lemon balm
- -Lemon Strawberries Lavender
- -Watermelon Cucumber Basil
- -Blueberry Oranges Tarragon
- -Honeydew Lime Dill
- -Kiwi Strawberries Cucumber
Can I use Leafy Greens in Infused Water Recipes?
It may seem strange to push leafy greens into water to infuse, but it totally works, especially for sparkling water.
Use baby spinach or baby kale in leafy-green infused water. The baby type is important because the leaves are not as bitter as adult leaves. The best leafy greens for infused water are kale, chard and spinach.
Try leafy green infused water, you won't be disappointed.
Here are a few nutrients you can expect from the baby-version of the following leafy greens in sparkling infused waters:
Kale is high in minerals such as folate, magnesium and potassium, which support in cell rejuvenation, blood purification, energy and DNA-building.
Chard is high in vitamins A and K and vitamin C.
Spinach is rich in folate, vitamin C, potassium, vitamins A and E, protein, fiber, zinc, thiamin, calcium, and iron.

Infused Sparkling Water Recipes GUIDE
Base Sparkling Water Recipe
- 4 cups seltzer water (buy it or use the home sparkling water maker I link lower down)
- 1 cup ice cubes
- 1 tbs Baobab powder (This superfood adds a citrus flavor and huge amounts of vitamin C, good for skin and immunity)
Choose One or Two Fruit/Veggies to Infuse
- 1 cup blueberries (frozen and crushed; fresh, chopped, crushed)
- 1 cup strawberries (frozen and crushed; fresh, chopped, crushed)
- 1 cup cherries (frozen and crushed; fresh, chopped, crushed)
- 1 cup chopped mango (frozen and crushed; fresh, chopped, crushed)
- 1 lemon (washed, lightly crushed)
- 5-10 mint leaves (washed, lightly crushed)
- ½ cup baby kale (washed, lightly crushed)
- ½ cup lemon balm (washed, lightly crushed)
- ½ cup baby chard (washed, lightly crushed)
- ½ cup baby spinach (washed, lightly crushed)
Make Each Recipe
- Pour the seltzer water, ice and baobab into a pitcher. Add in one or two of the fruit/veggie/leaf choices. Stir again.
- Cover and refrigerate for one hour at least.
- Of course you can drink it right away, but the water will be more nutrient-rich the closer to 12 hours you wait. And yes, you can eat the fruit as long as it seems fresh to you! Enjoy this sparkling treat!
How do you prevent the sparkling water from losing carbonation after sitting in fridge for 12 hours?
It may deflate, but you can deter by using a bottle with a tight seal - I believe I link to one in the recipe.
We love sparkling water! We don’t drink alcohol so we consider it our “fancy drink” lol. We also drink a ton of spring water, and since we’re in Ontario, we’re close to natural springs. We drink Cedar Springs & we love it!
Oh that sounds very fun, and I know what you mean about a "fancy drink"..
Love these Dee! So refreshing and a nice change from drinking plain water.
Thanks, Jess! So true, love the bubble effect. Dee xx
