So maybe you already have that summer bod ready to go, or you're like the rest of us and left it until now to even start at all?
Not to worry as we have some detox drinks recipes that will help you shed a few extra pounds… and they taste delicious too which is always a bonus.
These are easy recipes to follow and won’t cost you a fortune to make – yay!
1. Detox water
When starting out, keep it simple. The best way to detox your body is by keeping it hydrated, and adding fruit or vegetables that contain antioxidants to your water will really help. Simply add some strawberries and mint to your water and allow it to diffuse. The mint helps with digestion and the strawberries contain anthocyanin, which stimulate the burning of stored fat.
2. Pineapple, pomegranate and lemon juice
Pomegranate contains more antioxidants than green tea which makes it a great detox food. The pineapple in this mix also gives you extra vitamins and sweetness.
3. Kale smoothie
Kale is the new spinach in the healthy eating world apparently and it’s for good reason. Kale is absolutely loaded with antioxidants and is great for anyone on a detox or just trying to stay healthy in general. All you need is a handful of kale, half an apple and coconut water. Kale is a bit difficult to eat by itself so smoothies are a handy way of getting loads in your diet.
4. The Immune Booster
This smoothie gives your body the detox it needs while boosting your immune system at the same time. It contains two apples, a handful of spinach leaves, one slice of cucumber, one slice of lime, half a celery stick, ¼ pineapple and ¼ avocado. Blend these ingredients together and you’re good to go!
5. The Vitamin C Kick
This drink is a must as it detoxes the body while fighting off illness as it is bursting with Vitamin C. All you need is two oranges, ½ a cantaloupe melon, 40g of strawberries and one tomato.
