  2. Spread the almond butter on top of the bagel.

Detox water is water that has been infused with different foods, mostly fruits and herbs, that helps your body in different ways. What ways you ask, well it depends on what you infuse your water with. So, I’ve included a list of some of the most popular ingredients and how they help your body.

Also consider adding a green tea bag to your water while it infuses. That helps with mental awareness and overall alertness and energy levels.

How do we infuse the water?

Well, It’s pretty simple, The amount of each ingredient depends on what flavor you are going for and your personal taste. I typically use about a cup to a cup and half of ingredients to a quart of water. From there it is really up to youDetox Water

  1. Gather, Wash, and cut your ingredients as needed
    • With herbs wash gently as to not wash all the oils of the leaves.
  2. Muddle all the ingredients to release all the good stuff and fill with water
    • For a pitcher I use the back end of a wooden spoon
  3. Leave this in the fridge for about four hours to overnight
  4. You can use the fruit mixture 2 to 3 more times.
    • Don’t use it more than that or it can become bitter (don’t ask me how I know)

 

You can also make a single glass at a time. I use much more fruit to lower the infusion time and just refill as necessary. I usually let it sit about 30 minutes with this method. Here’s Pictures of my process for a single serving.

Detox Water Detox Water Detox Water

What I do daily:

  • I make a pitcher before I go to bed each night
  • In the morning I strain it into my water bottle then refill the pitcher
  • I repeat this until that night when I’m going to bed and make a fresh batch
  • I’ll make single severing when I want a different flavor in the middle of the day

Tips:

  • I know I don’t always make it through the fruit in time. When it starts to go bad freeze it. The mix the frozen berries with milk, vanilla, and a touch of sweetener to have a nice smoothie.
  • Drink your water cold, It help burn more calories that way
  • If you use a green tea bag, replace it each time you refill the pitcher.
  • Make water YOU like. If you don’t like it, you probably won’t drink it.

What do you infuse into your water?
