Did you know you can easily make your own Infused Water Recipe at home? This pineapple infused water is filled with pineapple chunks, cucumbers and sprigs of fresh mint. It doesn't get any easier or any more delicious than putting this easy drink recipe together to serve to family and friends.
A little unknown fact about me, I'm allergic to fresh pineapple! Which is why for this recipe I used frozen pineapple chunks. Not sure why, but I never have an allergic reaction to frozen or canned.
While infused water recipes are very popular during the summer, they're great to enjoy all year long.
What I love most about this pineapple infused water recipe is that it works great for a few people or a crowd you're serving for the holidays.

Main Ingredients Needed
Exact measurements are listed below in the recipe card. Make sure you scroll down to print and save the recipe for later!
- Frozen Pineapple Chunks
- Sliced Cucumber
- Fresh Mint
Quick Tip: Always use cold water when infusing with fruits and vegetables. Do not use hot water. Hot water makes the vegetables and fruit fall apart and it can alter the taste. It might even cook the fruits, vegetables and herbs.
Step 1 | Prep the Fruit
- Add the pineapple chunks and cucumber slices to a tall pitcher.
- Also add the fresh mint. It helps to tear them so the flavor penetrates the water.
Step 2 | Add the Water
- Fill the pitcher with ice cold water.
- Remember, adding hot water will make the pineapple and cucumber fall apart.
Step 3 | Serving Tips
- Pour the pineapple infused water into a glass that's filled with ice cubes.
- Add a few sprigs of mint to garnish the drink and a fun straw.

- Fresh Pineapple - feel free to use fresh pineapple in place of the frozen chunks I used for this recipe. Canned pineapple chunks would be okay as well. Just be sure to drain them as the added juice would sweeten the infused water too much.
- Coconut Water- replace some of the regular tap water with coconut water.
- See this Fruit Infused Coconut Water recipe on my website!
- Store the water in the refrigerator for up to three days.
- You should remove the fruits and mint leaves after 24 hours so they don't leave the water bitter.
- Try freezing the leftover water in ice cube trays.
- Wash the vegetables and fruit to remove any chemicals from pesticides that were used in growing. Again, make sure you wash in cold water.
- I prefer to peel the cucumber before adding it to the pitcher of water.
FREQUENTLY ASKED RECIPE QUESTIONS
If infused water is left at room temperature, you can enjoy it up to 6 hours. After that time you should refrigerate the water and it's fresh for up to three days, although I find the fruit and vegetables to become slightly mushy.
