Slim Down Detox Water

You will need:

1/2 gallon spring water

1/2 grapefruit, sliced

1/2 cucumber, sliced

2-3 mint leaves

1/2 lemon, sliced

1/2 lime, sliced


Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Allow the ingredients to chill in the refrigerator for 1-2 hours before serving. Drink throughout the day or discard after 24 hours.

Lemon Ginger Detox Water

You will need:

1 12-ounce glass water, at room temperature

Juice of 1/2 lemon

1/2-inch knob of ginger root


Add the lemon juice to the glass of water. Finely grate the ginger and add to the glass of water. This drink is a perfect way to start your day, or it can be incorporated into a three-day cleanse and detox.

Apple Cinnamon Infused Water

You will need:

1 apple thinly sliced

1 cinnamon stick

(don’t use powdered cinnamon; it clogs the water)


Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher (save a few to drop in your glass later) and then the cinnamon stick. Cover with ice about 1/2 way through, then with water. Place in the fridge for one hour before serving. You can refill the container 2-3 times before it begins to lose flavour.
