Detox drinks have become very popular in recent years thanks to their numerous health benefits. Drinking your fruits and veggies is probably the best way to give your body a break and still get all the nutrients you need. Detox drinks are often packed with antioxidants, vitamins and hydrating ingredients that make you feel and look good.
Detoxification helps in removing toxins from processed and inorganic foods. With this, losing weight and burning fats can be done in a safe and natural way.
Here are few detox drinks you can make at home for weight loss. What more can you ask for? They’re cheap and 100% natural.
1. Cucumber Mint Detox Drink
Mint is traditionally regarded as the best ingredients for soothing an upset stomach. Mint also improves the flow of bile through the stomach speeding the digestion process. Coupled with antioxidant rich cucumber and lemon, this cooler is as much a respite from the bustling heat as from the toxic overload.
8-10 Mint leaves
2 Tbsp Lemon juice
Lemon rings and mint leaves
1. Peel, chop and blend cucumber, mint leaves and 1 cup of water.
2. Strain and discard pulp.
3. Add lemon juice, black salt and dilute with water if needed.
4. Pour the beverages in glasses, put some ice cubes and garnish with lemon rings and mint leaves.
2. Berries Detox Smoothie
Berries are your friend when it comes to detoxing because of all the antioxidants and fiber they contain. They’re just the thing your body needs to replenish itself and to help purge toxins from its various systems. Blueberries are packed with them, and raspberries and blackberries also have a lot, so we’ll use all three here to make sure it’s a detox winner.
1 1/2 cups Berry Mix (Blueberries, Raspberries, Blackberries)
1/2 cup Coconut Milk
1 cup Purified Water
1/8 cup rolled oats
Blend everything together until you reach a smoothie consistency. The beauty of berries is their easy prep. Fresh berries need a rinse before going in, while frozen you just pop right in. When detoxing organic produce is always recommended.
3. Green Goddess Detox Drink
Drink to your health—and beauty. Parsley is a great diuretic to help you beat bloat, while spinach contains compounds called glycoglycerolipids that may have anti-cancer properties. The juice is also a rich source of vitamins A and C, which promote skin health.
10 spinach leaves
1 stalk celery
½ c parsley
Put all ingredients through a juicer. Chill with ice if desired.
