Strawberry Lemon Mint Water

Water. This is NOT the way I like to stay hydrated. I know! I know! Water is so important to being healthy. But let’s face it: it’s boring! There is no colour, and there is certainly no flavour to it. I know there has to be a way to make sipping on this lack lustre liquid more flavourful while making me a better me

I thought about some of the flavours I love and one of my favourite combos came to mind: Strawberry Lemon. It is sweet, tart, and absolutely delicious. Since I love a good glass of lemonade, I wondered if a lemon infusion with strawberries and mint would work. I gave it a try and it made drinking water better.

One of my favourite parts about this Strawberry Lemon Mint Water infusion was actually putting it together. It is a quick and simple drink to create. Watching the ingredients blend together almost makes me not want to drink it. It is simply beautiful.

The ingredients on their own are all gorgeous. Each of them have bright, bold colours and have their own distinct flavours.

Health benefits?

Along with its beauty, Strawberry Lemon Mint water provides sippers with a list of health benefits (yeah, I know!). This makes this infusion a little tastier for me to want to drink. 

Strawberries are an excellent source of Vitamin C, folate (Vitamin B9), and potassium. These berries are also rich in antioxidants and plant compounds which may help with heart health and blood sugar control.

Lemons are a power-packed citrus fruit. They are also an excellent source of Vitamin C, and help to increase heart health. Lemons also aid in controlling weight, preventing kidney stones, improving digestive health and so much more!

Don’t count mint out of this combo! Mint leaves aid in digestive health, help to improve mental awareness, and reduces nausea and stress.

Even though strawberries are at their peak in early summer, this Strawberry Lemon Mint water can be enjoyed any time of the year! Since it is so simple to make, you can put it together in the morning and have it ready to serve and sip on in the afternoon. This could also be whipped up the night before to be enjoyed the next morning!

It is always great that these ingredients are in stock at the grocery store all year-round so you never have to worry about missing out on making this drink. I hope you give it a try and enjoy it as a flavourful alternative to drinking water on its own.

  1. Yum, this looks like some tasty water. All the flavors sound incredible, so I’m sure I’ll love this.

  2. I am into drinks and this sounds so good. I have a ton of mint right now, so this would be a great way to use it. I wonder if I can freeze it and use the cubes to flavor regular water?

  3. This looks so much better than tap water! I have only had fruit infused water in hotels, I should make some at home.

  4. I think I’d want to sip on this all day. But, I think it would be perfect for the afternoon and sitting in the sun.

  5. Ruth I says:

    I am indulged by this idea. I think there can be more fruit options that can be added. This isn’t a boring water anymore.

  6. That looks so delicious and refreshing. So much better than purchased fruit drinks with all of their sugars added to them.

  7. I have never tried this combo, but I love lemon water and love drinking it in the morning. I’m going to try this. Looks delish!

  8. Kathy says:

    This looks like it would be really good. I haven’t tried any kind of mint water before. I’m interested to give this recipe a try.

  9. This drink looks refreshing, just the perfect combination. I love the mint flavor.

  10. Water is my least favorite, because of the same – it’s clear and boring looking. I will have to try this combo – at least just the strawberries. Will it work the same if your strawberries were frozen vs fresh?

    1. reesespeaks says:

      Water is not a favourite drink of mine to enjoy on its own. I believe you will loose some of the flavour from the strawberries if you use frozen strawberries instead of fresh. Your strawberries may also look a bit mushy once they thaw out. This was an awesome question!
