Creamsicle Water – Homemade Flavored Water


Yes, that is correct.  Creamsicle water.  The taste of a summer creamsicle dripping down your hand in the form of refreshing *almost* calorie free water.  I cannot physically calculate the calories in this since I don’t have the machinery to do it.  But I can’t imagine the orange is flooding the water with calories.  Plus you can always add water, which dilutes it and the calories, but you still get the taste.  I love the idea of flavored water and since I usually have a few odds and ends leftover from my produce box, this would be a great way to use them up.  Feel free to make your own flavor-infused water – naturally – using the flavors you like and share!

There is a Fruit Fusion Water Pitcher just for making this.  I use my Pampered Chef pitcher that has the handle which stirs it up each time.

Creamsicle Water
yields 2 qts.

2 qts. water
2 oranges, sliced thin
1 vanilla bean, scraped

1.  Mix it all up in a pitcher and allow to sit in the fridge for at least one hour.  You can strain it or not.  Sometimes I do with my french press.

    1. Yes, but you may have a slight alcohol taste integrated into the water. Vanilla extract is primarily alcohol plus vanilla beans and some manufacturers add additional sugar.

  1. Greetings from California! I’m bored to tears at work so I decided
    to browse your blog on my iphone during lunch break. I really like the knowledge you
    provide here and can’t wait to take a look when I get home.
    I’m surprised at how fast your blog loaded on my cell phone ..
