Strawberry Mint Detox Water

Best detox water recipes - strawberry mint infused water recipe
Have you caught on to the infused water (or as some like to call it, detox water) craze yet? Why drink boring, plain water when you can make healthy flavored waters at home for hardly any money!

Pssst. Incase you didn't know, I wrote THE BOOK on infused water / detox water recipes. Check it out on Amazon here!

....but back to the strawberry mint water, because that's why you're here, right? 

This is one of my favorite recipes in the book! 

Something about the combination of sweet strawberries and fresh mint just mingle together in a way that is crisp - yet slightly sweet - in a way that is oh-so-refreshing!

We grow a mint plant mostly so I have a ready supply of fresh mint available for infused water! If you don't have your own mint plant, that's okay! Just pick up a small pack or organic mint in the produce aisle of your local grocery store. 


  • 8-10 large strawberries* (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 large mint sprig*
  • 2 quarts cold filtered water
*Creative Green Living recommends purchasing these ingredients as organic where available to avoid GMOs, pervasive pesticides and/or questionable farming practices.



Wash and halve the strawberries (if using frozen strawberries, leave whole).


Add strawberry halves and mint to a 2 quart pitcher. Fill to the top with cold water.


Allow the mint and strawberries to infuse the water with flavor for at least 10 minutes before serving.

Keep water chilled.

Pro tip:

When the water level runs low, you can just add more water to the pitcher over and over again until the strawberries lose their color or 48 hours passes from the first batch made - whichever comes first.
