10 Best Detox Drinks That Contain Real Food (Recipes Included)



So you’re recovering from a decadent party-filled weekend or starting a new health and diet plan. Or you’ve finally decided to take the initiative to detox and rejuvenate your body. Whatever your health goals are, eating healthy should be one of the top priorities to your health and fitness agenda.

Your path to healthy eating and a healthy body should always start with a detox regimen. And one of the top ways to detox your body is through super healthy detox drinks. There are many types of detox drinks ranging from liver cleansers to weight loss. The following are 10 top detox drinks recipes from some of the top health bloggers.

1. Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water Recipe

By: loseweightbyeating.com

This is the ORIGINAL Day Spa Apple Cinnamon Water Recipe that has now become an internet sensation and millions of people have tried and loved it.

Did you know both apples and cinnamon raise your metabolism? Apples are extremely rich in important antioxidants and flavanoids, including Vitamins C and B Complex. The phytonutrients and antioxidants in apples may help reduce the risk of developing cancer, hypertension, diabetes, and heart disease

Cinnamon has many health benefits, including lowering cholesterol, fighting diabetes, and helps relieve arthritis pain.

Makes 2 liters.


  • 1 Apple thinly sliced, I like Fuji but pick your favorite. Cut away the seeds.
  • 1 Cinnamon Stick. I don’t recommend using powdered cinnamon, it clogs the water.

Get started

Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher (save a few to drop in your glass later) and then the cinnamon stick.

Cover with ice about 1/2 way through then with water. Place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

You can refill the container 2-3 times before it begins to lose flavor.

2. Detoxifying Lemon Water

By: realityofyou.com

How this drink detoxifies you?

Cucumbers rejuvenate your body with energy-boosting vitamin B. It also contains a lot of fiber that aids in digestion as well as removing toxins from the body.

Ginger aids digestion and has anti-inflammatory properties. In 2010, there was a study done that followed people who consumed two grams of ginger each day for about eleven days. It turned out those people had a 25% reduction in exercise-induced muscle pain. So all you runners/serious athletes out there? DRINK THIS!

Lemons clean your bowels, and neutralizes free radicals that cause aging. Lemons also contain 22 anti-cancer properties.

Mint promotes good digestion and contains enzymes that could prevent cancer.


  • 1/2 a cucumber, sliced
  • 1 lemon, sliced
  • 1/4 of a peeled and sliced ginger root
  • 1/2 cup mint leaves


Cut everything up and chuck it into a pitcher!

I have never cut up ginger root before now (*fist pumps* *checks item off bucket list*) but it’s pretty easy. Just make sure you peel the little chunk of ginger you’re going to use BEFORE you cut that piece from the ginger root– if you don’t have anything to hold onto while peeling it can be really tough to peel the small thing.

Also don’t add too much ginger. As you see in the picture, I only added like three small chunks into the water.

You can keep refilling the pitcher with water for about 3-4 days before you need to replace the ingredients.

3. Green Detox Juice Recipe
