Tutorial 7 - DIY Detox Water Recipes


Tau tau tak detox tu apa?

Detox tu adalah salah satu cara untuk membersihkan toxin dalam badan kita.  Then kita tak perlu lagi ler nak telan ubat supplement bagai semata-mata untuk buangkan toxin tu dalam badan kita padahal sebenarnya kita boleh buat sendiri cara lain yang paling senang, mudah dan menjimatkan untuk membuang toxin dalam badan kita.  Jangan lar membuang merata tempat, membuang lar di tempat yang sepatutnya.  Kalo tak sempat, harap berusaha untuk menahannya seberapa lama yang boleh.

Ok, jangan tercirit-birit sudah lar!

A large pitcher
Fuji apples
Cinnamon sticks (powdered works too, I used about one teaspoon)
*Update* Somebody suggested a squeeze of lemon to keep the apples fresher!

This recipe has a 1:1:1 ratio, meaning you'll need 1 fuji apple and 1 cinnamon stick for 1 pitcher of water. With that said, you can leave the same apple and cinnamon stick in the pitcher for up to three days while refilling the water.

Slice a fuji apple and toss the slices into the pitcher with the cinnamon stick. Cover with ice, then fill the pitcher with water and allow it to set in the fridge for 15 minutes before drinking. Enjoy it throughout the day in the place of any juice or soda you would normally have! 

This water recipe will help clean up your system and even help your body burn calories more efficiently. That old rule "the more water you drink, the less you retain" is absolutely right, and drinking this apple cinnamon water will speed up the process of cutting water weight.

This is also referred to as the Zero Calorie detox water because it contains nearly zero calories. There are calories from the apple, but they’re pretty negligible. You’re probably used to seeing the zero on a bottle of water when it comes all the categories on the Nutrition Information label, like calories, fat, and sodium, and this would clock in pretty close. The cinnamon it contains is going to help stimulate your internal organs to cleanse themselves, while the apple is providing you with its all natural source of vitamins and minerals. Way better than just drinking regular water and a helpful boost to any detox program.

Super Hydration Juice 02
A large pitcher
2-3 organic cucumber, large
2 organic apples
A handful of organic strawberries
Organic mint, to taste.

2 big handfuls of spinach
1/4 cup parsley
1 stalk celery, cut into chunks
1 small cucumber, peeled
1 inch piece of ginger, peeled
juice of 1 lemon
6 ice cubes plus enough water to blend

2 apples, washed and quartered
2 medium carrots, washed, tops removed and cut into large pieces
1 stalk celery, washed and cut into several pieces
4-5 calamansi limes, washed (limau kasturi)

Blend lar semua sekali.

LEMON MINT CUCUMBER WATER slightly adapted from The Denver Housewife
Makes 1 gallon-size pitcher
  • 12 cups of water (3 quarts)
  • 2 to 3 lemons, thinly sliced (you can also substitute limes or mix it up…use a lemon/lime combination–using organic lemons or limes is best)
  • 1 small cucumber or 1/2 of a medium to large cucumber, preferably organic, thinly sliced
  • 10 to 15 mint leaves. preferably organic
Rinse lemons and cucumbers very well before slicing; slice thinly. Add lemons, cucumber, and mint to pitcher. Cover with water and refrigerate at least 4 hours or overnight (the flavor will be stronger if you refrigerate overnight, but I like the lighter flavor, too). Pour in a large glass over some ice…it’s very refreshing! This water tastes best the day or day after you make it. 
Cucumbers are one of the most hydrating vegetables because they’re mostly made up of water. Many detox programs include cucumbers on them for this very reason, and adding them to your water pulls out their minerals so you’re getting an added benefit. Mix in the lemon juice and you’re getting the cleansing effect of citric acid and helping to clear out the digestive system. The mint makes things taste fresh and crisp, and goes nicely with the lemon and cucumber while providing additional nutrients and benefits.

Flush Fat With These 5 Delicious Drinks
  • 1/2 gallon water
  • 6 wedges grapefruit
  • 1 tangerine, sliced
  • ½ cucumber, sliced
  • 2 peppermint or mint leaves
  • Ice

Rinse grapefruit, tangerine, cucumber and mint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit, and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients in a half gallon pitcher. Allow the ingredients to sit for 2 hours for maximum benefits. Drink throughout the day.

This is a great detox water for weight loss, and is specifically geared at getting certain fruits into your body that you otherwise might not eat. They’re using grapefruit here, one of the quintessential weight loss foods that seems to always get brought up when asked which foods help to lose the most weight. Grapefruit also is a fantastic detoxing food, which is often overlooked. They use tangerines for more citrus and sweetness, and cucumbers for added minerals.

Strawberry Rosemary Vitamin Water
  • 1 cup strawberries
  • 2 cups watermelon, cubed
  • 2 sprigs fresh rosemary
  • dash of course salt
  • filtered water
1. Muddle the strawberries and rosemary in a bowl.
2. Add the muddled ingredients and the watermelon to a large pitcher. Pour water over the ingredients and stir.
3. Refrigerate for 4-6 hours, and enjoy!
Strawberries are a great way to add a familiar and preferred flavor to most anything, and in this case it can make your water taste better while also providing antioxidants and added vitamins and minerals to your body. This particular recipe includes watermelon and rosemary as well. This makes it a great detox recipe to use in the summer when it’s easier to build up a sweat, and it’s only natural to have the taste of strawberries and watermelon. It will help to make your detoxing efforts more enjoyable and seem like less of a chore.
