It’s good to detox your body even if it’s for one meal out of the day to let your body digest all those mince pies. Studies show detox drinks help to boost energy, cleanse the liver, aid weight loss, reduce inflammation and promote skin health. Here are 5 of the best detox drinks to try this winter.
1. Water + lemon + lime
This is the best detox around. It helps with digestion, weight loss, improves your skin and boosts your immune system! Why not have it with your breakfast, or in bed catching up on emails? You can use hot water with lemon and lime slices for a morning detox, or cold for a post workout refreshing drink.
2. Cranberry + cinnamon
Cranberry is an antioxidant with anti-inflammatory benefits. It contains vitamin C, dietary fiber and vitamin E and K which is good for digestion and overall health. Making a smoothie that combines cranberry and cinnamon is not only seasonal, but is great for your body. Cinnamon lowers blood sugar and reduces heart disease risk factors. Blend together almond milk, coconut oil, cinnamon and cranberries with other flavors like vanilla protein powder and your morning detox smoothie is ready to go!
3. Carrot + orange + kale
Mixing kale with orange will cut the taste if you aren’t a fan of super green juices. All you need to do is add oranges, carrots, kale, lemon and ginger to a juicer to make this detox juice. This is a power juice, oranges help healthy blood circulation, kale contains fiber and sulfur for detoxifying the body and carrots contain a fiber that helps the body detox.
4. Cucumber + spinach + apple
Try a green smoothie once a week, for detoxifying and energy boosting. Juice together cucumber, spinach, celery, apples, ginger, and lemon for your vitamin hit. I promise your body will thank you for it!
5. Mint + hot water
Mint leaves can help overcome symptoms of overeating. Adding it to hot water makes the perfect ‘tummy tonic’. It also helps detoxify your liver and burn fat throughout the night, so it’s the perfect post-Christmas tipple. If you want to upgrade your fresh mint tea you can add a couple of orange slices for a refreshing detoxifying tea.
