Top 3 Classic Fruit Combinations for a Special Homemade Detox Drink
Do you have an insatiable appetite for round-the-clock eating? You can deny for a second or two but make sure to admit it to yourself the soon as you can. We understand that just the thought of you gaining weight or getting fat is quite heavy. But having the courage to admit the truth could be the first step of helping yourself for the better.
After accepting the fact that you’re getting a little overweight, the journey to fat-burning is probably the next big challenge. While there are several ways to burn fat, sometimes it’s just so hard to think of where to start. But whether you do some cardio-worthy exercises or stick to a diet meal plan, detox drink is a popular weight-loss tool that always comes around with any of these fat-burning strategies.
Good news, adding detox water to your regular diet and workout will not really cost you too much fortune because most ingredients are just sitting around your fridge, waiting for you to slice them up, crash their pulps, mix with freshwater, and finally turn these fruities into a special homemade detox drink.
Detox drinks have several functions such as boosting your metabolism, improving your digestive system, and flushing away pesky toxins inside the body. Now, if you’re eager to make your first-ever detox drink recipe, head on to the kitchen and grab the first item you’ll see. No, not the Alabama bacon-wrapped meatloaf but the round, red, juicy apples perching right there.
Glad that you found this article because it will take you to top-ranking fruit combinations which I’ve rounded up for a tastier detox drink that will help shrink your waistlines. Try these recipes and tell us your favourite!
Lemon-Cucumber Infused Water
Let’s start with the classics. When it comes to detox drinks, lemon-cucumber is the king of them all. We couldn’t agree more about that because these two always make a perfect tandem. Lemon is a natural detoxifier while cucumber is a classic hydrating food of all time.
1/2 lemon thinly sliced, 1/4 cucumber thinly sliced, ice, and water
How to prepare:
Step 1. Add the lemon and cucumber in a large pitcher. Also, add the ice and then the water.
Step 2. Set aside the infused water in the fridge for a few minutes before serving.
Step 3. Pour into a large glass to serve.
Step 4. You can refill the pitcher 2-3 times with water if it is down to only 1/4 full.
The Original Apple Cinnamon Detox Drink
Here’s another ideal detox water that does not only flush away your toxins but also contains phytonutrients and antioxidants (found in apple) help reduce the risk of developing illnesses such as cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease.
1 thinly-sliced apple (Fuji is a perfect choice if you want a stronger and sweeter taste.) and 1 cinnamon stick
How to prepare:
Step 1. Cut away the seeds of the sliced apple.
Step 2. Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher, and then add the cinnamon stick.
Step 3. Spread with ice about 1/2 way through, and then pour some water.
Step 4. Store in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.
Similar to the previous drink, you can refill the container with water 2-3 times before it starts to lose its flavour.
Watermelon and Strawberry Mint Detox Drink
Imagine two of your favourite fruits in one infused bottle. Let me tell you why this combination has made it to top 3. Not only watermelon tastes delicious but it also has a lot of amazing health benefits. Watermelons help lower blood pressure, enhance insulin response, and even relieve muscle pain. Strawberries, on the other hand, contain wonderful antioxidants, which makes this combination a nutritional powerhouse drink.
1/2 pint strawberries, 2 slices of watermelon (cubed and lightly mashed), and 6 sprigs of mint
How to prepare:
Step 1. Combine the fruits and mint leaves in an infused pitcher.
Step 2. Add water and ice.
Step 3. Serve and enjoy!
