This may not be the most creative recipe I’ve ever come up with (Remember my CinnaBanilla Protein “Milkshake”?), It certainly is one of my favorites! Detox waters, also known as fruit waters, flavored water, detoxes, infused water, and about a bajillion other names, are simply mason jars of water (for some reason it’s always a mason jar 🤔) with fruit. The fruit infuses the water with some of its’ flavor and nutrients. Water alone makes a fabulous detox because it flushes toxins from your body, but combined/flavored with fresh fruit, it becomes twice as amazing. It surprised me how flavorful this water became!
- 1 cup cold water.
- 1/2 an apple, fancily sliced into chips. (Or noodles, or cubes, or just plunk the apple half right in there (if it fits).
- Cinnamon sticks (I used 2, but they are very strong once they sit for a bit. You may want to start out with one and see how you like it 🙂 )
- 1/4 cup blueberries (I tediously poked each one with a toothpick to get the full flavor :D)
- Simply plop all ingredients into the cold water and let sit for your desired amount of time. Half an hour will give it a very subtle hint of flavor, 24 hours will make it strong enough to make you cry (especially if you add 2 cinnamon sticks).
