Infused Sparkling Water Recipes GUIDE
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.
