With only a few more weeks left of April I have to find new ways to stay motivated on this healthy lifestyle journey. Last week I attended a spa week (there’s still time to book your appointments click here ) and I received a Spa Water book, which sparked this challenge. This book contains tons of recipes of various types infused water recipes for healthy eating and drinking. My coworker also randomly gave me an infused water recipe and so I took that as a sign.

So what is infused water exactly?

Fruit infused water is exactly what it states. It is water mixed with fruits and herbs with amazing health benefits, including getting rid of belly fat.


The most popular fruit infused water is lemon water and some of the benefits of drinking lemon water include:

  1. Boosts your immune system
  2. Decreases wrinkles and blemishes
  3. Flushes unwanted materials out of your system
  4. Relieves respiratory problems

Health Benefits of drinking Fruit and Herb Infused Water

  • Weight Loss
  • Younger and Healthier Looking Skin
  • More Energy
  • Better Taste/Flavors
  • More Nutrients, Vitamins, and Antioxidants
  • Improves Digestion
  • Improves Immune System
  • Improves your Mood

So for this challenge I will be replacing my usual fruit juices with fruit infused water. My goal is to drink at least 32 oz. per day for the next 14-days.

The ingredients and materials for the next 14-days.

1. Spa Water by Pam Wenzel (for inspiration)
2. Pitcher
3. Mason Jars
4. Fruit and Vegetable brush (for the non organic products)
5. Lemons
6. Limes
7. Peaches
8. Mint
9. Cucumber
10. Grapefruit
11. Basil
12. Berries (strawberry, raspberry and blueberry)
13. Peaches
14. Kiwi
15. Ginger

I will use 6-10 recipes over the course of the two-weeks. I will not try a new recipe each day because of my schedule and prepping for the week is easier than a new prep each day. I will be using the Spa Water book for inspiration but I will mainly “freestyle” my recipes. I will also be noting the effects of drinking fruit infused water as well. So stay tuned for the updates and if you are going to participate leave a comment below!

I will be using the hashtag #HGBInfusedH2O on all social media posts. So tag your pictures and recipes!

Follow me on Instagram and Facebook to stay up to date with the recipes. I will begin the challenge Sunday April 21, 2013 and the challenge will end May 5, 2013.


  1. I’m up for the Challenge. The water looks so refreshing.

  2. Great blog. I am going to try the spa water for 14 days and see how it will help me with my workout pie

  3. Think I will also be giving this a try. Do you get a lot of taste of the fruits in the water ? I tried before but only with warm water with lemon/lime/ginger as part of a detox plan. I wasn’t aware that this helps with losing weight, so that’s extra motivation to give it a go. How long do you infuse for ?

    • You have to infuse for at least an hour. The longer you infuse, the stronger the flavor. I will infuse overnight.

  4. Great post. I will absolutely do this. I really want the kids to drink more water instead of sugary fruit juice as well.
