4 DO-IT-YOURSELF WATER FRUIT INFUSION PRODUCTS FOUND ON AMAZON

One night while laying in bed browsing the Amazon app, I was sucked into two deals that boasted water infusion. I made some in-the-moment purchases and got the items the very next day (thanks, Amazon Prime).

The first deal I couldn’t resist was the Lily’s Home Fruit Infusion Pitcher. It’s just a plastic pitcher with a tube that allows the water to be flavored by whatever fruit you throw in it. Simple and easy to wash. My first infusion was just lemons, but since I’ve followed some recipes I found online and I’m using this thing like crazy.

The other purchase I made that night was a water bottle that does the same thing — it’s just something smaller to carry to work. It’s the Infuser Water Bottle sold by IC Imports. At first I struggled to get the tube out of the middle of it — it was in there tight, but after the first time I got it out it was fine. It’s also easy to wash and is a great size. Just a warning: This one doesn’t have a straw, you unscrew a lid to drink from it. It is plastic and very simple, so I wouldn’t buy it at more than the Prime member price, but for less than $10 it’s a great find.

Cost: $8.95 if you’re an Amazon Prime member (regularly $39.99)

Another good deal I found on Amazon was this Primula Today Shake and Infuse Pitcher. It’s a three-quart, BPA-free pitcher with the tube for infusing the water. What I like is the shakeable factor … it’s leak proof, and shaking means faster infusion. It’s dishwasher safe.

I also found this FlavorFast two-pack of infusion water bottles. This pack has a list price of $39.99, but the Prime price is for 60 percent off. I like the bottle’s flip-top cap and that it’s more of a tumbler. This purchase includes an e-book download. Looking at this YouTube review I found, the tube insert looks a little tiny, and the reviewer says the water bottles are a bit on the small side.

FRUIT INFUSION TIPS

  1. You can use a variety of herbs, vegetables, fruits, flowers (edible), spices and water
  2. Recipes are easily searched online
  3. Infusion takes a few hours, so it’s best to make it the night before you drink it for optimum flavor
  4. Some fruits (berries, mainly) will release color into the water
  5. Herbs take longer to release flavor
  6. Flavors won’t be as pronounced with each refill, but it is possible to refill a few times, reusing your flavor products
