Today I’m bringing you a post that combines my two FAVORITE things. Ditching single-use plastic and avoiding food waste.

As you may recall from 8 Innovative Ideas for Using Food Scraps, I talked about a tasty way to use up your strawberry tops. 

I’m sharing my favorite fruit infused water recipe with you, plus a little story about Dopper, my favorite water bottle.  

I was really excited when Dopper reached out, offering to host a giveaway because Justin and I use these bottles daily. And it was a no-brainer to make my strawberry water recipe to share with you.

why you’ll love fruit infused water

  • It’s great on the go!
  • Simple to make.
  • Strawberries in water are seriously delicious.
  • You can customize this strawberry water recipe.

why I love my Dopper: 

two cups in one: 

I love the option to have two cups. I just took my Dopper on my trip to Arkansas. It was great because I got iced tea in the bottom and kept water in my goblet.

It also comes in handy because I go everywhere with Nala. Now, I always have a cup for her to drink out of without contaminating my own water supply.

I also run into lots of wine opportunities living near Napa. Having an instant reusable wine goblet is perfect. Almost every event I go to has a wine stand serving glasses in those small plastic cups. 

It’d probably be pretty difficult to convince them to pour wine into my stainless steel water bottle. Convincing them to pour wine into an adorable little goblet!? Not an issue at all. 

two mouths:

The Dopper bottle has the option for a small mouth and a large mouth. Most bottles have either a small mouth or a large mouth, never both.

If I want ice in my bottle, I can use the large opening. When I want to drink water and not spill it all down my front, (has happened with large mouth bottles on more than one occasion), I can do that too. 

easy to clean:

The way it comes apart makes it super easy to clean. I don’t have a dishwasher, but they are dishwasher safe up to 149F/65C. I know that’s important for some of you folks. 

To ensure a clean Dopper, always remember to properly wash and dry your Dopper bottle after use, and leave it without the cap on in your cupboard.

fighting to end single-use plastic:

5% of all sales go to the Dopper Foundation which supports clean drinking water, improved sanitation and hygiene through the charitable organization Simavi in Nepal.

It also invests in change-makers and solutions for plastic pollution that go beyond the bottle. You can read more about the Dopper Foundation and how you can help here.

They’re a certified B Corp and Certified Cradle to Cradle. When I choose to buy things new, I want to support companies that are getting it right. 


It would be a rare day for you to find me without my Dopper bottle by my side. I love drinking plain tap water.

In fact, I like my water room temp. *audible gasp* I’m probably in the minority, but growing up performing and singing, drinking cold water could seize your vocal chords. 

I always drank room temp water and I just got used to it. But, it’s good to change things up every now and then! I like to make infused water because it’s tasty, a great way to use food scraps, and it’s a fun option for parties.

Strawberry tops are often relegated to the compost bin, but they still have life in them. They’re great for digestion and make your strawberry water taste sweet and summery.

frequently asked questions

how long do you need to chill strawberries in water?

The longer you leave the strawberries in water, the strong the flavor is going to be. It’s actually ready to start sipping on within 30 minutes – 1 hour. However, I prefer to let it infuse for 3-4 hours when time allows.

can I reuse the fruit to make multiple batches of strawberry flavored water?

Yes, you can use them 1-3 times depending on how fast you drink the strawberry infused water. The strawberry tops will last several days, but once they start breaking down, they lose some of their flavor and appeal. So, if you drink it within a day or so, go ahead and make another batch!

can I make fruit infused water with different fruit?

Absolutely! Feel free to swap the strawberry tops for any other fruits you have around. You can try out all sorts of combinations like limes, oranges, raspberries, blueberries, and the list goes on and on!
