We had a slow start to spring here in Brooklyn. The trees were in full bloom, but the cloudy skies and cool temps told another tale. The bees were sluggish, and my weather app kept suggesting I take a jacket.

Then, this past week, the skies seemed to clear and, all of a sudden, spring is in full effect. The bees have their groove back – and I find myself walking around, taking it all in with a smile on my face.

The change from gloomy to perfect almost overnight definitely inspired this clean, refreshing and strawberry detox water recipe. There is nothing more refreshing and cleansing than homemade detox fruit water, and with summer approaching, it’s the perfect drink to enjoy and to help you lose weight.

After downing three containers in two days, I’m confident that you too will feel invigorated by this fruit-infused water recipe!

Ingredients for Detox Water:

  • Strawberries: The strawberries will add a pop of color and hint of sweetness.
  • Orange: Citrus for vitamin C and a cleansing feel.
  • Mint leaves: To add a refreshing element to the already cooling water.
  • Water: You can use bottled or tap water for this recipe. I’ll leave that up to you.

How To Make Detox Water

  1. Adding the flavors first: Place the fruits and mint leaves in a pitcher or a wide mouth ball jar.
  2. Pouring the water: Fill the pitcher with water and give the fruits a quick stir using a spoon or a chopstick.
  3. Chill: Leave the water for at least 2-4 hours to let the flavors seep in.

Other Flavor Variations:

  • Cucumber and mint
  • Lemon and basil
  • Cucumber, lime, and blackberries
  • Watermelon, kiwi and lime
  • Grapefruit, pomegranate and raspberries
  • Apple and ginger
  • Cranberry, orange and basil

How Much Water Should You Drink On A Daily Basis?

As we all know, keeping hydrated is important.

Our bodies are made up of a ton of the wet-stuff, and our cells require water so our bodies function properly, combat fatigue and promote clear skin.

I’m not a doctor, so I won’t get all sciency here – but being properly hydrated is a big deal for both feeling and looking your best.

The recommended amount is about 2 liters but this number can vary depending on where you live (you may need more if you live in a hot and humid environment) and how old you are (the older we get, the more water we need to stay hydrated).

How Long Does Detox Water Last?

Detox water can last up to 6-7 days depending on the fruits and herbs used. Softer herbs like basil and mint only last a couple of days while sturdier ones like rosemary can last much longer.

But the general rule of thumb is 2-3 days tops.

For this strawberry detox water, I would say no more than two days. After that the strawberries get mushy and the mint starts to disintegrate.

How to make detox water last longer

You can easily make your spa water last longer by simply removing the fruits and herbs once the water is infused (after 3-4 hours).

I like to make my detox water in the evening and leave it overnight. This way I can pour myself a refreshing glass of fruity water first thing in the morning!

The best thing about making slimming detox water, or spa water as I like to call it, is how easy the entire process is!

The steps are pretty much the same for all detox fruit water recipes – chopped fruit, fresh herbs, which are optional but highly recommended, and water.

And it’s a great variation to mix things up if you’re trying to ingest your recommended daily intake of H2O. And, unlike soda or sports drinks, it’s high in vitamin C and low in sugar!

By the time we were nearing the end of our third container of strawberry detox water, Ben poured half a glass of the concentrated infused water and topped off the rest of the glass with seltzer. It was fizzy, fruity and completely delightful!

If you have a container with a proper seal (and prefer bubbles) you can totally make this strawberry detox water with seltzer. Yet another way to enjoy keeping hydrated.

I used to infuse my water in a ball jar as you can see in the pictures. But lately I have been using a water infuser pitcher since it makes discarding of the fruits and herbs much easier.
