Pressure Cooker Infused Water

Pressure Cooker (AKA Instant Pot) Infused Water is healthy, refreshing, and perfect for any day of the year! The recipes included here are for Mango/Ginger, Peach/Raspberry Lemonade, Blueberry/Lime, Apple/Cinnamon, and Strawberry/Lemon/Basil infused waters.

Ingredients

  • MANGO GINGER
  • 1 cup chopped mango
  • 2 1-inch knobs of ginger, peeled
  • PEACH RASPBERRY LEMONADE
  • 1 cup chopped peaches
  • 1/2 cup raspberries
  • zest and juice of 1 lemon
  • BLUEBERRY LIME
  • 1 cup blueberries
  • zest and juice of 1 lime
  • APPLE CINNAMON
  • 1 apple, chopped
  • 5 cinnamon sticks
  • STRAWBERRY/LEMON/BASIL
  • 1 cup whole strawberries
  • 1 sliced lemon
  • few leaves of basil
  • Step by Step Directions

    1. Place fresh or frozen fruit (or vegetables and herbs of your choice) in a mesh steamer basket.  Set inside the pressure cooker pot.  Add water to barely cover the produce, about 4-5 cups.  Secure the lid and turn pressure release knob to a sealed position.  Cook at high pressure for 5 minutes.

      When cooking is complete, use a quick release.

      Remove the steamer basket and discard cooked produce.  Let the flavored water cool slightly then pour into a mason jar, top with a pourable lid and place in the refrigerator to chill.

      NOTES

      Straight from the jar, the water is quite potent.  I like to add 2-3 tablespoons per 8 ounces of water for just a hint of flavor; sweeten if desired

      Another option: Freeze the infused water in an ice cube tray and pop them into your bottled water.

      The colored frozen cubes would look amazing in a big punch bowl for a party!

      If you don’t have a mesh steamer basket, this could be made directly in the pot and then poured through a strainer to filter out the produce after it’s cooked.
