What Does A Detox Water Recipe Do? 

A great detox water recipe is not just about helping you get more water into your daily routine, but about helping your body flush out toxins.  You don’t need to detox your body that much generally, but if you have gotten into the habit of binging on junk food or drinking soft drinks throughout the holidays, then a good flush of water with natural cleansing and antioxidant rich foods like the fresh lemons is a great idea.

How To Keep Your Detox Water Recipe Fresh

Personally, I love making up a batch of this water and chilling in a pitcher overnight so I can pour into my favorite Kleen Kanteen each morning to have on my desk chilled to sip throughout the day.  It stays fresh, cold, and delicious all day long.  You can also simply keep the lemons and cucumber sliced and on hand in airtight containers in your refrigerator to simply grab a few slices to drop into a glass each time you refill.  Choose the method that works best for your routine.

Lemon Cucumber Detox Water Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Lemon
1 Cucumber
Ice
Water

Directions: 

1. Slice both your lemon and cucumber into small slices. I like my slices thick to get the optimal flavor but they need to fit into the glass.
2. Line your glass with slices of the lemon and then put ice in the middle of the glass to hold the lemon slices in place. Only fill the glass about halfway or to the top of the lemon slices with ice.

4. Pour your water in, let it sit for a couple of minutes to absorb the flavors and enjoy!

Keep The Flavors In Your Detox Water Recipe Longer

Want to keep your drink cold longer?  Add some of your cucumber and lemon slices to the inside of your ice cube trays and freeze them inside the water so as the ice cubes melt they continue to flavor your water. This is also a great way to have supplies on hand all the time.  Simply prep a ton of cucumber and lemon slices in advance and toss into the freezer ahead of time!  I have to add, that I absolutely love using silicone molds as ice cube trays.  These specific silicone ice cube molds are my favorites.
