Top 101 Detox Water Recipes

Water. We simply can’t live without it.

Sometimes it’s so thirst quenching-ly good! Other times? You’d rather have a soda.

Let’s face the facts… Who actually enjoys downing the recommended daily dose of plain ol’water?!

I certainly don’t. And if you agree, I’ve got an idea that’ll make drinking water much more enjoyable and far less of a chore.

It’s time to amp up your water game, by simply…

Infusing water with fruits, herbs and veggies.

It’s that easy. All you have to do is:

Place your desired flavor combo in a mason jar. Add water. Let it sit.

And Voila! Just like that, you’ve created your very own, low calorie, deliciously infused water.

Looking for extra credit? Use ingredients with detoxifying qualities (we’ll identify these below) to create a detox water!

The possibilities are truly endless.

Detox Water Recipes

We’ve sipped on countless combinations of detox waters, and narrowed it down to our absolute faves.

Here are a couple of water infusing tips before you get started:
  •     Try these water recipes with hot water, cold water, soda water or even over ice!
  •     For an extra burst of flavor, place the infused water in the fridge for a few hours before drinking it.

The Importance of Drinking Water

It’s a no brainer. We need to drink water.

Our bodies require a sufficient supply to function properly and remain healthy!

In fact, water is “your body’s principal chemical component and makes up about 60 percent of your body weight. Every system in your body depends on water. For example, water flushes toxins out of vital organs, carries nutrients to your cells, and provides a moist environment for ear, nose and throat tissues.”

From bowel movements to perspiration, our bodies are constantly using up the water we drink for basic bodily functions.

According to the Mayo Clinic, you should be drinking enough so that…

“you rarely feel thirsty and your urine is colorless or light yellow — and measures about 6.3 cups (1.5 liters) or more a day if you were to keep track.”

Quick word of caution: You can drink too much water.

“In rare cases, drinking an extreme amount in a short time can be dangerous. It can cause the level of salt, or sodium, in your blood to drop too low. That’s a condition called hyponatremia. It’s very serious, and can be fatal. You may hear it called water intoxication. How much would you have to drink? An enormous amount. Gallons and gallons of water.”

Detox Water Benefits

Ok, you get it. We need to drink water.

Now the question is, does drinking detox water benefit us? Any more than drinking plain water?

In my opinion, yes, it does. Here’s my reasoning:

Reason #1

As discussed, infusing your water makes it less boring and more delicious.

Ergo, you drink more water.

If this solution turns a non-water drinker into a water drinker then bam! It has done its job.

Reason #2

Alright… You already drink water.

But you also LOVE soda.

Well you wouldn’t be alone… In fact, water “has become the second most popular drink (behind soft drinks).”


According to the Center for Disease Control, “Approximately one-half of the population aged 2 and older consumes sugar drinks on any given day… males consume an average of 178 kcal from sugar drinks on any given day, while females consume 103 kcal.”

Although they may be tasty these drinks are full of sugar! Which is said to be “linked to the U.S. explosion in obesity and related medical problems, and health officials have been urging people to cut back for years.”
