Strawberry Lime Infused Water Detox Drink
See what happened? I visited a nutritionist for the first time and she has me hooked on all kinds of detox drink ideas. I’ve already shared the ever-so-popular Perfect Liver Cleanse Cocktail with an Energy Booster that she recommended to me. That drink has done a world of good for my energy level but now I want something that will help me drink water more often during the day. I can’t stand the taste of plain water. I’ve tried it ice cold to warm and it doesn’t matter, I need something to help me get my daily water intake in. Drinking water boosts your immune system naturally, which in turns, makes it easier to lose weight. The fruit infused waters really, really help! It’s a benefit that they are also a detox.
Did you know?
Did you know what your daily water intake should be? To calculate your daily intake, you simply divide your weight in pounds by half. This is the amount of water in ounces that you should be drinking daily. For example, a person that weighs 120 pounds (divided by half is 60), should be drinking 60 ounces a water every day.
This simple drink has Strawberries and Limes. It has absolutely no sugar and it doesn’t need any either.
The benefits of Strawberries:
- Vitamin C
- Fights High Cholesterol
- Reduces Inflammation
The benefits of Limes:
- Improves Weight Loss
- Helps aid the digestive system
Here’s how to make your own Strawberry Lime Infused Water Detox Drink!
- 1 gallon of water
- 2 cups sliced strawberries
- 1 sliced lime
Add all the fruit into a jar or pitcher and set it in the fridge overnight. I am in LOVE with this Sterilite 1 gallon pitcher because it’s light and easy to pour. I highly suggest getting something similar. You can reuse the fruits 2 times.
Optional suggestion: You can add a pinch of cinnamon if you like the taste of cinnamon. Cinnamon is wonderful at helping to regulate your blood sugar levels. I tend to put cinnamon in lots of drinks.
Serve cold and enjoy! This has totally helped me stay on track with my water intake goals and I can bet it would help you too!
