There are a lot of different reasons why people love detox waters. First of all, if you want to drink more water but don’t love its plain taste, try detox water. The flavors are sure to add a little kick to your plain water. If you’re looking for other health benefits, you’re sure to get a ton of different health benefits from drinking these different detox water recipes. Not only do they taste really great, but the benefits are even better!
1. Lemon and Cucumber
Lemon and cucumber water seems simple enough, and it is! If you want to try detox water but aren’t usually a fan of flavored water, this is a great one to start with. Cucumbers help you avoid bloating and citrus fruits like lemon help get rid of toxins in your body. It’s just a plus that the lemon and cucumber give it a fresh, spa-like taste!
2. Aloe Water
It may seem like a weird drink but think about it. Doesn’t aloe create one of the most amazing feelings when you put it on your skin? Aloe water aids digestion and can wake you up a little bit. If you want to add a little more taste to the detox water, for every part aloe, add the same amount of lemon!
3. Lemon Ginger Detox
If you’re wary of putting ginger in your detox water, trust me! For over a year, I refused to add ginger to any detox water, smoothie, or juice recipe that called for it because I didn’t think I’d like the little spice it gives. However, it’s an amazing little kick to any water, smoothie, or juice. Ginger’s spice helps kickstart your metabolism, among so many other benefits, and lemon helps to neutralize the spice from the ginger!
4. Morning Start
As someone who was nervous to try detox water, this is a great place to start. It’s simple, but the properties are seemingly endless. Start your morning by squeezing a lemon into a pitcher of water and drink it over the course of the morning. Lemon water is said to do myriad different things, from boosting your immune system to giving you some energy.
5. Mint Grapefruit Detox
If you’ve been drinking detox water for a while and are ready to branch out with new fruits and flavors, try mint grapefruit water. Peppermint is thought to relieve a ton of different digestive issues, and grapefruit seriously helps out in the weight loss department. Together, they taste amazing and make the perfect pair!
6. Blueberry Orange Water
Berries are chock full of antioxidants, and blueberries are no exception, making them a perfect additive to your detox water. Like all citrus fruits, oranges can remove toxins from your body and help clear you out. It’s only a plus that blueberries and oranges taste so great together!
7. Watermelon Water
If you’re someone who loves the taste of watermelon but find it difficult to find the perfect watermelon, try drinking it in detox water! Watermelon flushes out your system, and the vitamins and minerals from watermelon are only an added bonus.
