Detox Waters

Well, the Christmas season is over and if you’re like me, you’ve put on a few pounds from all that good eating. Here are some easy and delicious detox water recipes to help you cleanse the body and lose some weight.

Slim Down Detox Water

You will need:

1/2 gallon spring water

1/2 grapefruit, sliced

1/2 cucumber, sliced

2-3 mint leaves

1/2 lemon, sliced

1/2 lime, sliced


Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Allow the ingredients to chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving. Drink throughout the day or discard after 24 hours.

Lemon Ginger Detox Water

You will need:

1 12-ounce glass water, at room temperature

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1/2-inch knob of ginger root


Add the lemon juice to the glass of water. Finely grate the ginger and add to the glass of water. This drink is a perfect way to start your day, or it can be incorporated into a three-day cleanse and detox.

Apple Cinnamon Infused Water

You will need:

1 apple thinly sliced

1 cinnamon stick (don’t use powdered cinnamon; it clogs the water)


Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher (save a few to drop in your glass later) and then the cinnamon stick. Cover with ice about 1/2 way through, then with water. Place in the fridge for one hour before serving. You can refill the container 2-3 times before it begins to lose flavour.
