Summer Lovin’ and Infused Detox Water

Summer is upon us!! I’m not a huge fan of summer. Mainly because it is HOT, and well, I live in Arizona. But there are definitely some ways to make it more enjoyable. I present to you infused detox water drinks!

It’s a well known fact that during the summer you should drink more water and less sugary drinks like soda and chocolate milk. I’ve been drinking a lot of water lately so I decided that it is time to shake it up a little bit so to speak. While it’s known you should drink more water during the warmer months, it is less known that you can make this normally blah beverage choice taste a whole lot better!! Not only can you make it taste better, you can make it taste better without adding a ton of sugar, or any sugar at all! Plus, there can be some major health benefits associated with it when you combine the right ingredients! Definitely makes it a worthwhile option for those that just can’t do plain ol’ water.

I’m going to share some of my favorite infused water recipes with you. They each have their own special benefit aside from the regular water intake you should be doing anyway.  It’s a lot cheaper drinking these kind of drinks than the premixes and soda you can buy at the store, too! I hope you enjoy some of these delicious beverages!

First up we having a slimming detox water. Super yummy and refreshing. This water consists of cucumber, strawberry and basil. You can find the recipe here. Definitely good for reducing that waistline! The more water you drink the less hungry you are!

Another fav of mine is Apple Cinnamon detox water. This recipe is especially good for anyone that struggles with blood sugar issues. The apples help with flushing heavy metals of your system as well. Check it out! The recipe for the this delicious detox water is available at this lovely blog here!

Now, I LOVE Dr. Oz! Been a fan for sometime. He always has some useful information and some great recipes. His Fat Flush Water is not only good for you, but it’s kind of pretty too! It consists of cucumber, tangerine, peppermint leaves and grapefruit. Such a beautiful combination of colors! This recipe can be found at this link here. They also have a wonderful selection of even more infused waters and detox drinks.

Want another delicious option?! How about some yummalicious Watermelon water? That’s right!! A two ingredient tasty water option. Watermelon is overabundant during the summer months! Simply slice up some watermelon and toss into a pitcher and cover with water and let it infuse for a few hours so that watermelony goodness can soak in. Once it has set for a little while in your nice, cold fridge pour yourself a glass and drink up!!

Not only is water good for you, now you know you make it taste incredible. By adding the additional ingredients, not only do you get some wonderful health benefits from it, it also curbs your cravings! So when you go to grab that next soda, think about giving infused water a try. Your body will thank you!
