5 Delicious Detox Drink Recipes

Detox Juice Drinks Recipes


Juice cleanses and diet detoxes are everywhere right now, and the shameless marketers promise everything from instant weight loss and fat that “melts away” to a “cleaner” bloodstream.

But the truth is, our bodies are miraculous organisms that cleanse our bodies of all the chemicals, sugar, and fast food that we throw into it. Our livers, lungs, digestive systems, and kidneys are always working hard to get rid of toxins.

So is there any point to detox?

Some doctors and natural practitioners says yes. Although there are many myths out there about detoxing, you can still give your body’s natural processes a boost in many ways, whether you eliminate sugar, go on a short fast, or eat clean after a particularly unhealthy or stressful period in your life.

People who detox the natural way instead of buying into an expensive juice fast or “cleansing” program do report that they feel and look better and have more energy.

Here are five delicious recipes to get you started.


1. Your Simplest Detox Drink

Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice +  Cucumber Slices + Water

2. Watermelon and Mint Water
