How to make Detox Water:

It is a simple combination that works together so well. Slice and cut up all the fruits leaving the skin or peeling on. Place all the ingredients into a pitcher or large container. Fill the pitcher with filtered, cold water. It is best to enjoy this water at least an hour later from making it. This will allow the fruit and mint garnish to absorb the water and fill the cold water with more flavoring.

  1. Add all ingredients together: In a large pitcher add the oranges, limes, lemons, strawberries, and mint.  Fill the pitcher with the water.
  2. Steep the water: Let sit in the refrigerator 1 hour or overnight to let it steep and flavors blend.

The Recipe Critic Pro Tip:

Once the fresh fruit ingredients are in the pitcher filled with water, take a fork or  long tool to poke at the fruit helping the fruit to release the juices in the water.

FAQ’s on Detox Water:

Frequently asked question about detox water is important to know the benefits as well as more information regarding detox water. Detox water is not a diet or a quick fix to solving and eliminating any disease or health issue someone may have. Detox water in general is a flavorful water that is healthy to drink and will help the human body from the inside, out. Enjoy this flavorful water each day, one glass at a time!

  • Does detox water work? Yes! This water is healthy and will aid in eliminating any bad toxins in the body. In general, water is healthy for you and known to have several benefits by itself. This water is only a drink and added exercise will be required if looking to lose weight with it.
  • How long does it take to infuse water? For a stronger, more flavorful water, it is best to refrigerate the detox water at least an hour to overnight. This will help bring out fresh flavors in the water and taste amazing!
  • How long does detox water last? Water in general lasts forever, however, with the fruit infused I recommend storing the detox water in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. Once the fruit and herbs lose their flavoring the water is no longer fresh and delicious.
  • Can you eat the fruit in detox water? Absolutely! As the fruit is soaking in the water, it slowly is losing its flavor but it will still have a fruit filled texture and flavor when eating it.
  • What do you make detox water in? A pitcher is best or something that is large enough to hold the amount of water you desire. This detox water recipe is perfect for doubling or even tripling for a large party. If this water is for home, even cutting it in half will work as well.
  • How much water should you drink based on weight? It is best to drink an ounce of water per pound you weigh for each day or in general it is best to drink eight, eight ounce glasses of water each day.
