10 detox water recipes twttr

What Is Detox Water?

Detox water is basically water (I recommend Mineral Water - Love H2O ) infused with fruits, vegetables, and/or herbs. Sometimes called infused water, many people use it as part of a body detox strategy.

Water is crucial to your health. Every part of your body depends on water to thrive. Water is key to many basic physiological functions; water keeps your bloodstream fluid, moisturizes your skin, and even helps eliminate waste. Both the quantity and quality of water a person drinks directly impacts the health of their body.

Unfortunately, I know many people who don’t enjoy drinking water. Some say it’s tasteless and dull. That’s what makes detox water so excellent. It adds flavor to plain water while also infusing key, beneficial nutrients. If you’re looking for a simple health-conscious choice, detox water is a great option.

Some of the Most Popular Ingredients

Some detox waters add nutritional value to water. Others provide a tasty alternative to less healthful drinks such as soda, energy drinks, or coffee. The best do both.

Many popular detox water recipes include citrus fruits like grapefruit, orange, lemon, and lime. These fruits are both tasty and heavy in vitamin C. Many types of detox water also include healthful herbs like mint, basil, rosemary, oregano, and ginger. Other popular ingredients include cucumber, berries, watermelon, apple, cinnamon sprigs, aloe vera, and even apple cider vinegar. I even like adding a dash of Himalayan Salt for additional flavor and a mineral boost.

10 Detox Water Recipes to Try at Home

Each of the following recipes are simple and anyone can make them. You’ll notice that many of these recipes use approximate measurements like “a handful.” Play around and find what’s most tasty to you. Detox water recipes don’t need to be exact. These are just a few that I’ve made while experimenting in my own kitchen. I encourage you to experiment yourself to find what you like!

Every one of these recipes follows the same basic formula, only the add-ins differ.

Start with one gallon of purified water (room temperature is fine). Combine the other ingredients in a glass container, stir gently with a wooden spoon, and refrigerate for 3-4 hours to allow all ingredients to mingle. Serve and enjoy!

These ingredients are best when fresh. I recommend drinking your detox water within 24 hours of making it.

1. Cucumber Mint Water

Cucumber water makes for a healthy, mellow drink. Adding a little mint makes this a refreshing delight on even the hottest day.

Pro-Tip: Once you’ve added these ingredients to your water, use your wooden spoon to crush up the mint leaves against the bottom of the container. This releases flavor and makes your water delicious!

2. Watermelon Citrus Water

Watermelon citrus water makes an excellent summertime treat. Perfect for picnics.

3. Herbal Oregano Water

Adding savory herbs like rosemary and oregano to a fruity drink may seem weird to some people. But, trust me, if you haven’t tried it, you should. The strong flavors of the herbs compliment the sweetness of fruit like lemon or watermelon.

Pro-Tip: Boil the rosemary and oregano in water before adding to the rest of the mixture. This will help better combine their flavor with the other ingredients.

4. Sweet Herbal Cucumber Water

The oranges in this recipe add vitamin C. The dash of Himalayan salt gives it a mineral boost that distilled water alone lacks.

5. Kicking Lemon Ginger Water

I call this “kicking” because the chili and ginger give it a kick. Definitely recommended if you like a little spice.

6. Strawberry Basil Water

Strawberries are high in antioxidants, potassium, vitamin C, and many other nutrients. They make for a delicious berry beverage.

7. Cool Ginger Mint Water

Ginger has been used for thousands of years to help a variety of ailments. Some of ginger’s health benefits include helping to ease an upset stomach and soothing a sore throat. But, you don’t have to wait until you get sick, this drink is tasty anytime.

8. Citrus Aloe Water

This infusion combines the great taste of citrus with the extraordinary healing power of aloe vera. I highly recommend it.

9. Strawberry Grapefruit Water

Vitamin C is one of the best possible detox vitamins. Found in both strawberries and grapefruit, this water recipe provides a double-blast of it.

10. Tangy Cucumber Lemon Water

You may notice that this recipe has lemon twice. That’s no mistake. Regular cleansing is important to your overall wellness, and lemon water is great for a natural detox. This recipe really lets you double-down on the healthful properties of lemon water.

Can These Detox Water Recipes Benefit Your Health?

Again, these recipes are just a few suggestions and the possibilities are endless. Everything is up for experimentation, so get a jug of distilled water and experiment! If you’re looking for an easy way to make more health-conscious choices in your daily life, detox water is a great option.

These detox water recipes are a great step towards improving wellness.
