What is detox water ? Detox water is your regular drinking water infused with a few simple ingredients that helps flush the toxins from your body better. It’s one great way to be healthier.

I try to drink the recommended 8-10 glasses of water per day but sometimes it can be hard. Why, you ask? Because I’m not really a big water drinker. I would normally go for drinks that has flavor in it like sodas and juices. I know water is so much better for me. So to help me get my daily recommended water intake, I resort to flavored water or detox water. With detox water drinks, not only are you getting all the water that you need and a detox, but it also helps flush fat out of the body. If that’s not enough reason to start drinking detox water, I’m not sure what is.

10 Refreshing Detox Waters



1. Lemon Water

This is a super easy detox water that only needs two ingredients, your freshly squeezed lemon and water. Drink it every morning for best results! (Read: 26 Benefits of Drinking Lemon Water)

I don’t know what you are using for squeezing the lemons but I use similar to this lemon reamer I got at Ikea years ago. It’s cheap and there is nothing to break (mine is plastic too). It’s perfect for getting a little bit of fresh lemon juice out for a salad dressing, fish or lemon water. Easy to clean too – just rinse right away. This lemon juicer also looks good and might be better than mine because it catches the seeds. I can’t stand expensive complicated kitchen tools that are a product of smart marketing brains.

Lemon Water

Ingredients


  •     1/2 lemon
  •     1/4 cup cold water
  •     1/3 cup boiling water



Instructions


In a glass, squeeze lemon juice with lemon reamer; discard seeds if necessary. This lemon juicer also looks good and might be better than mine because it catches the seeds. Add water, stir and drink while warm


Notes


To make water warm, I usually mix boiling water from the kettle (I hope you have one?!) and fridge filtered water. Another option is to turn off kettle before water reaches boiling. You just have to wait by the kettle and turn it off on time.

6. Flat Belly Raspberry Lemon Detox Water

Supercharge your body with the nutrients it needs by drinking this delicious flavor-infused water

Flat Belly Raspberry Lemon Detox Water


Ingredients


  • 2 cups organic raspberries
  • 8 cups (64 ounces) spring or filtered water
  • 1 large organic lemon—cut into ½- inch slices
  • 2 dried Medjool dates (optional but adds nice sweetness to the water)
  • 1 drop lemon essential oil-optional
  • 1 gallon clean glass jar with lid (here’s a good option)


 Instructions

  1. Place raspberries into the bottom of your jar. Add the dates if using then layer the lemon slices on top. Pour water into jar and place lid on top.
  2. Place water into the refrigerator and let infuse for 1 hour. Remove the lemon slices and squeeze their juice into the infused raspberry lemon water. I like to remove the lemon slices after 1 hour so the water doesn’t get too bitter from the rinds.
  3. Add the lemon essential oil drop into the jar. Stir the water with a spoon, cover with a lid and put water back into the refrigerator overnight for the best flavor.   You can leave the raspberries and dates in the infused water for up to 2 days before you need to strain them out of the water.  You can eat or compost the raspberries and dates rather than just throwing them away. Most of the flavor will be extracted from the raspberries but you can still add them into a smoothie with the dates and other fruits and veggies. Enjoy!



Note

I usually drink all or most of this water in one day so it never lasts  me for 2 days!
