The 2 Best Detox Drinks to Kickstart Your Day Right!

If you’re looking for a way to start off your morning with a great kick to your immune system and metabolism, here are 2 easy options that are as delicious as they are great for your body!

Whether you’re looking to support weight loss, bolster your defenses against flu season, or help cleanse your liver- these are both excellent options for you!

Option 1: Infused Water

There’s something magical about sipping on a glass of infused water on a hot summer day. Not only does it quench your thirst, but it also provides a plethora of health benefits. To create this invigorating elixir, start by gathering your ingredients: ginger, cucumber, lemon, fresh mint leaves, and of course, water.

Ingredients:

  • 1 teaspoon of grated ginger
  • 1/2 cucumber, thinly sliced
  • 1 lemon, thinly sliced
  • A handful of fresh mint leaves
  • Water

Instructions:

  1. Begin by preparing the ingredients. Grate a teaspoon of fresh ginger and thinly slice half a cucumber and a lemon.
  2. Grab a large jug and add the grated ginger, sliced cucumber, lemon, and fresh mint leaves.
  3. Fill the jug with water, ensuring all the ingredients are submerged.
  4. Gently stir the mixture to combine the flavors.
  5. Place the jug in the refrigerator to chill and let the flavors infuse. Allow it to steep overnight or for at least 4–6 hours for optimal taste.
  6. Once adequately infused, serve the refreshing drink over ice and enjoy the invigorating flavors while reaping the health benefits.

This rejuvenating infused-water is perfect for staying hydrated and promoting overall well-being. Sip on it throughout the day to quench your thirst and avoid cravings for high-sugar sodas.

Sparkling Apple-Cider Lemonade

If you’re looking for a more potent detoxifier, apple cider vinegar (ACV) is the way to go. Known for its myriad health benefits, ACV has been touted as a miracle elixir for centuries. To harness its power, you’ll need nothing more than ACV, water, and optional flavorings like Vitamin C powder or electrolyte powder.

The Apple Cider Vinegar helps promote the absorption of the other nutrients, and the other flavorings create a great-tasting as well as healthy drink!

Ingredients:

  • 1 tablespoon of apple cider vinegar
  • 1 packet of electrolyte powder (your preferred flavor)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • Sparkling water
  • Ice cubes (optional)
  • Lemon slices for garnish (optional)

Instructions:

  1. In a tall glass, pour the apple cider vinegar.
  2. Add 1 scoop of electrolyte powder to the same glass.
  3. Squeeze the juice of one lemon
  4. Fill the glass with sparkling water, leaving some space at the top for ice cubes if desired.
  5. Stir the mixture gently to dissolve the electrolyte powder and combine the ingredients.
  6. If using, add ice cubes to the glass to chill the drink further.
  7. Garnish with lemon slices for an extra burst of flavor and a decorative touch.
  8. Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing and hydrating soda replacement drink!

This sparkling electrolyte lemonade is a delicious and healthy alternative to traditional soda. Packed with electrolytes, a hint of apple cider vinegar, and the zesty freshness of lemon, it’s the perfect way to stay hydrated and energized throughout the day.

Cheers to good health!
