If you are like me, you are not drinking enough water during the day. I love my coffee so much, I tend to lean toward drinking that and only drinking water to keep myself from getting dehydrated! I know, it’s really bad! I was at a friend’s house recently and she had infused water and I couldn’t stop drinking it because it tasted so good! I found some of these Infused Detox Water Recipes that I want to try now thanks to her.
Infused Detox Water Recipes
Infused water is an excellent way to detox your body, since you are only using all-natural ingredients, like fresh produce and herbs. It is a good way to drink more water as well, which is another simple way to detox your system. There are many fun combinations that can help with everything from detoxing your body or losing weight, to fighting off disease. Take a look at some of these different detox water recipes.
Orange Tropical Infused Water
This first infused detox water recipe is fruity and gives you some tropical flavors as well. It is great for detoxing because the orange in the water is a wonderful antioxidant, while both orange and kiwi can help with cleansing the liver and kidneys.
To make this:
- 1 orange, peeled and sliced
- 2 kiwis, peeled and sliced
- ice and water
The longer you can leave the fruit in the water to absorb the nutrients and flavors, the better it will be.
Fruit and Veggies Infused Water
Here is another infused detox water that also uses orange, but also some other fruits and veggies as well. You can even add some mint to it to get more flavor and nutrients. The basic infused water recipe calls for a cucumber, lemon, and orange. The quantities depend on the type of flavor you are going for and whether you are using a full pitcher, mason jar, or just a single-serving bottle to take with you. Remember you can also add sparkling water instead of just plain water if you want to give it a little kick.
Refreshing Strawberry Lime Infused Water
This is a very popular recipe that is perfect when you want to detox your body while also feeling refreshed. It is ideal for an early morning water since it really wakes you up and makes you energized for the day. It is also perfect in the spring and summer months when it is hot and you want a cool, refreshing drink.
To make this:
- cucumber slices
- ice and water
Citrus Blend Water
For this recipe, you can add as many different types of citrus as you please: grapefruit, oranges, lemons and limes!
Lemon Lime Mint Water
This recipe is your upgrade to average lemon water. The key here is mixing the mint and lemon with a big spoon in order to release the flavors even more than squeezing a wedge.
Peel and thinly slice one fresh mango. Add to 1/2 gallon glass jar. Add 1 cup of finely chopped pineapple and filtered water and allow to infuse in the refrigerator for 4-6 hours before drinking.
You can also great creative with your detox infused water. Most infused waters will have some type of detoxing properties. You can put together your own recipe by first adding in your chosen fruits, then adding an herb or two. You can also add some extras like honey or apple cider vinegar to increase the overall amount of nutrition and detoxifying benefits of the water.
My favorite water bottle infuser for personal-sized portions is this 25oz Infuser Water Bottle Sport Flip-top. It is leak-proof and easy to use for adults and kids alike.
