Water can be boring.  If you find yourself consistently reaching for sodas or other sugary drinks, this is a great solution to healthily quench your thirst.

These detox water recipes will help you lose weight, boost your metabolism, flush your liver, and reach your daily water goals.

Most people are guilty of not getting enough water into their diet.

Myself included.

This seems to happen for a few reasons:

  1. We drink other things that taste better.
  2. Water can be pretty boring.

The problem is that water intake is incredibly important to our health.

It helps remove fat cells from the body, increases the body’s metabolism, and helps control cravings.

It can even help you to lose weight.

These waters are great for:

  • Replacing high-calorie snacks
  • Getting you to drink more water in general
  • Helping you through times of cravings
  • Taking cute Instagram photos
  • General detox
  • Extra energy
  • Using up that last bit of fruit in your fridge
  • Putting a smile on your face

Mix and match the detox water recipes below to get a wide variety of nutrients back into your diet!

1. Strawberries, Grapes, Lime, and Mint

It is great to drink them in a planned way so your not drinking natural water by itself. Maybe something like;
Every second day.
On weekends.
2-4 days per week
😀

How much water for each recipe? Also do you let the ingredients infuse over night or just drink right away? Thanks 🙂

10-16 ounces (you will want a big cup)! We put them in fresh and do a light squeeze. The fruit gets really soggy after awhile!
