5 8-ounce servings


  • 40 ounce bottled or filtered water (5 cups)

  • 4 cup sliced strawberries

  • Whole strawberries

  • Ice cubes

  • Sugar, Simple Syrup, or no-calorie sweetener (optional)


  1. In a 2-quart glass pitcher, combine the water and 4 cups sliced strawberries. Cover and refrigerate at least 6 hours or overnight.

  2. The water should have a nice pink hue and the strawberries will look less red and a little mushy. Strain water through a fine mesh sieve; discard strawberries. Before serving, slice 4 or 5 additional strawberries in half lengthwise, leaving the tops on for color; place in the pitcher with strawberry water. Serve water over ice with additional fresh strawberries for garnish. If desired, sweeten to taste with sugar, Simple Syrup, or sweetener.
