Strawberry Jalapeño Infused Water

Feb 8th

Shake away those winter shivers with an infused water that heats you up from the inside out! Jalapeño peppers bring the heat while strawberries keep the water sweet. It’s a delicious combination that is easy to modify to a comfortable level of spiciness.

Recipe for a 32 oz Ball jar : 3 organic strawberries + 1/4 to 1/2 of a  jalapeño pepper. Cut the tops off of the strawberries and slice them into two for maximum surface area. Use a plastic glove or piece of plastic wrap over your thumb to de-seed the pepper. Fill with cold water and infuse in your refrigerator for 3-12 hours. Enjoy cold.

A note about spiciness: 1/2 of a jalapeño pepper will produce a spicy water! If you typically eat spicy foods, you’ll have no problem with the flavor of 1/2 of an infused jalapeño pepper. On the other hand, 1/4 of a pepper produces a very faint spiciness…almost too little to taste. If you have sensitive tastebuds, use 1/4 pepper.

Also, the longer you infuse the water, the spicier it will become. Luckily, the strawberries’ sweetness always helps to cut the flavor.


Did you know that jalapeño peppers only have 4 calories per pepper? They are are also rich in vitamin C, with almost 17 milligrams in a small pepper. Plus, the capsaicin in jalapeño peppers acts as an anti-inflammatory agent AND is recommended for weight loss and stubborn belly fat. Win!
