Every now and then we owe our bodies a mini detox, especially after we’ve treated ourselves to one too many sweets or junk foods. Since following a strict juice cleanse isn’t considered practical or delicious by everyone.
I’ve found the perfect solution to get your detox in without having to sacrifice any meal or major food group. Thanks to YouTube fitness guru, Cassey Ho, we’ve got a detox to accentuate beautiful skin and to control those annoying cravings.
After a weekend filled with unhealthy eats and frozen treats, chances are you’re feeling bloated. Instead of going crazy with juice diets, there’s a recipe for Detox Water that can help you control your cravings and even contribute to beautiful skin.
Besides all of the benefits that this beverage has, it’s also simple to make. You only need five ingredients, not including ice and water, and these ingredients combined can work many wonders for your health.
- 1 to 2 L of water
- juice of 1 lemon
- 5 strawberries sliced (optional)
- 1 apple sliced
- handful of fresh mint leaves
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
- handful of ice
Mix all the ingredients and let it sit overnight to maximize the flavor and drink it all day as your regular water.
Why These Combos?
① Apple & Strawberries
The apples and strawberries not only fill your ice cold glass with sweet flavor, but they can help make your skin look better and even prevent sagging.
② Lemon & Fresh Mint Leaves
The lemon and fresh mint leave aid digestion
The cinnamon that tops it off is the key to managing blood sugar levels and improves circulation. Results in fewer sugar cravings so you eat less and can control calorie intake.
Together, these ingredients form a delicious and beneficial twist on the water that serves as a great detox for your body.
