- Filtered ice water
- Fresh or frozen sliced peaches* to taste
- Fresh pineapple* chunks to taste

- Find a container in which you want to infuse your water; options include a mason jar, a large glass, water bottle, specialty infusion water bottle, large pitcher or specialty fruit infusion water dispenser.
- Fill container with filtered water and ice.
- Add desired amount of fruit and herbs. For personal use in a water bottle or mason jar, just use a couple slices of each fruit and one or two herb leaves. If serving a crowd, use about a cup of each fruit and several herb leaves.
- Enjoy immediately or refrigerate a few hours to enhance flavor. The longer it sits, the more flavor the water will have. Add more water to the container throughout the day as needed. Keep cold. Discard fruit and herbs after one day.

- Orange, strawberry and banana
- Lemon, orange and fresh mint
- Strawberry, kiwi and fresh rosemary
