10 Detox Water Recipes to Cleanse Your Body!

Hey #StyleIslandBloggers, recently I’ve been trying to turn my life around. I’m becoming more productive, handling my business, learning self-love tactics, and just learning to control my happiness and faith. With that, being able to make healthy choices when it comes to what goes into my body has been a top priority for me. I’ve seen lots of people try detox teas and waters, and it’s been sparking my interest for a while. Although I do want to try the teas, detox water became a quick and easy thing for me to do CONSISTENTLY.

The motto? CLEAR SKIN AND FLAT TUMMY ALL SUMMER ’17! I’ve done some research and have decided to share some the recipes I’ve been using! Take notes people. These will change your life! Now I’m not a fan of flavored water, but the taste of detox water has definitely grown on me. For one, it is less flavored than flavored water. Two, there’s no artificial sweeteners. And three, it tastes much more refreshing and infused with all of the fruits’ and vegetables’ goodness. Let’s get into it!


WAKE UP REFRESHER

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Slices of grapefruit
  • Mint leaves
  • Water

This detox water is sooo refreshing. You just mix the grapefruit and mint leaves with your ice and water, put it in the fridge overnight, and drink it before you start your day! Everyone loves a good tall glass of water in the morning — why not make it more enjoyable? Health benefits: Grapefruit aids in blood pressure and heart health. Mint is a great appetizer or palate cleanser, and it promotes digestion.

BEFORE/DURING WORK OUT

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Slices of watermelon
  • Slices of cucumbers
  • Mint leaves
  • Aloe Vera Juice
  • Water

This detox is hydrating and adds nutrients back into your body while working out. All you need is a dash of aloe vera juice, nothing major. Health benefits: Watermelon has significant levels of vitamins A, B6 and C, lots of lycopene, antioxidants and amino acids. Aloe vera juice aids in hydration, heartburn relief, and clear skins. Mint, as said before, promotes digestion. Cucumbers contain multiple B vitamins, including vitamin B1, vitamin B5, and vitamin B7 (biotin). B vitamins are known to help ease feelings of anxiety and buffer some of the damaging effects of stress.

POST WORKOUT

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Cut up pieces of pineapple
  • THIN slices of lemon
  • Slices of oranges
  • Water

Very refreshing. This is definitely one of my top five’s. I do this one a lot, even when I don’t workout. Yet, it is extremely helpful when you do. This detox water brings electrolytes back into your body after your workout and even has a very citrusy taste. Health benefits: Pineapples aid in immune system support, eye health, and bone strength. Get this, oranges have a staggering 130% of your vitamin C needs for the day! The health benefits of lemon are due to its many nourishing elements like vitamin C, vitamin B6, vitamin A, vitamin E, folate, niacin thiamin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, copper, calcium, iron, magnesium, potassium, zinc, phosphorus and protein.

BEFORE BEDTIME

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Slices of lemon
  • Slices of lime
  • Dash of aloe vera juice
  • Water

This detox water will be super helpful before you go to bed, considering you will be getting a full night’s rest without any water. The aloe vera juice will keep you hydrated through the night, and the lemon and lime will give you a nice citrusy taste before bed.  (Health benefits are/will be stated in previous/future recipes.)

DURING/AFTER DINNER

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Slices of kiwi
  • Blueberries
  • Mint leaves
  • Water

This is perfect for during/after your dinners because it will help reduce bloating with the mint leaves and the kiwi. Plus the blueberries and mint combo is delicious! Health benefits: kiwi is a high source of vitamin C and folate, protects DNA damage, boots your immunity, supports weight loss, and improves digestive health.

GOT A SWEET TOOTH?

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Sliced apples
  • Sliced oranges
  • Cut up pieces of strawberries
  • Water

We all have a sweet craving during the day, right? This is just for that! The orange/apple/strawberry infusion gives the water such a sweet taste — very pleasing to the taste buds. I’m not going to state any health benefits here because we’ve pretty much covered these fruits already!

LUNCH TIME

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Slices of lemon
  • Cut up pieces of strawberries
  • Mint leaves
  • Water

This one is perfect for during your lunch. It’s very tasty and the mint makes it extremely refreshing. Personally, I’m not a big strawberry eater. but I’ll definitely put it into my water! Health benefits: strawberries have lots of folate, potassium, manganese, dietary fiber, and magnesium. It is also extremely high in vitamin C! (I’m pretty sure we’ve gotten the gist of the mint and lemons).

TUNNEL VISION

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Mint leaves
  • Blueberries
  • Cut up lavender plant
  • Water

Very photogenic and aesthetically pleasing — this one is perfect if you’re having a hard time focusing on projects, on the job, etc. I drink this while blogging actually. It does give me a sense of “tunnel vision” or focus so that I’m concentrating on what is in front of me. Health Benefits: Lavender aids in its ability to eliminate nervous tension, relieve pain,  enhance blood circulation and treat respiratory problems.

TO CALM A STORM

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Chopped up lemongrass leaves
  • Sliced lemons
  • Blueberries
  • Water

This detox water is perfect when you need something to calm you down, having anxiety, stress, etc. Maybe you’re about to take a big test and need something to calm your nerves. This is your go-to. Health benefits: lemongrass is a plant. The leaves and the oil are used to make medicine. Lemongrass is used for treating digestive tract spasms, stomachache, high blood pressure, convulsions, pain, vomiting, cough, achy joints (rheumatism), fever, the common cold, and exhaustion. Blueberries aid in  warding off heart disease. The blueberry’s fiber, potassium, folate, vitamin C, vitamin B6 all aid in heart health.

STARVATION KILLER

WHAT YOU’LL NEED:

  • Sliced cucumbers
  • Sliced apples
  • Sliced limes
  • Water

Hungry, but you can’t eat yet? This is perfect if you’re ever on a timed schedule and say you have a set time to eat at 6pm and it’s 5pm. Or maybe if you’re going on a dinner date in a few and need something for your stomach to wait out the time. I love green apples, but of course you can use red if that’s your preference. Health benefits: limes help with weight loss, skin care, improved digestion, relief from constipation, eye care, and treatment of scurvy, piles, peptic ulcer, respiratory disorders, gout, gums, urinary disorders, etc. Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants and dietary fiber.


All of these great recipes are NOT time consuming, and I think that’s what I love most. Of course you can do any of these fruits, leaves, and vegetables alone with just water. Some other simple ones I’ve done are lemon and oranges, strawberries and mint, and kiwi just by itself. Get you a water bottle, maybe one with an infuser, and you’re all set!

WHY IS DETOXING SO GREAT?

  • Detox drinks are great for cleansing the body of toxins that have you experiencing digestive issues, weakness, bloating, nausea, mood swings and skin issues.
  • Detox drinks help to boost energy, cleanse the liver, aid weight loss, reduce inflammation and promote skin health.
