Cleanse your body and mind with this Strawberry-Kiwi Detox Water. Fresh fruit soaked in cold water make this drink one you’ll want to be sipping on all day!
So today I need to share with you one of my latest obsessions. Detox water. Have you ever had detox water? Detox, or cleansing, water is basically water with fruit or vegetables submerged into it. The theory behind it is that the vegetables or fruit submerged in the water help to regulate your system and provide greater health benefits such as a stronger immune system or clearer skin. Me? I love the health benefits and really enjoy the taste of it. It makes regular water taste so much more light and refreshing! In particular, this Strawberry-Kiwi water has the sweet taste of the fruit with a little pop of citrus from the lemon!
Now when you make this you can serve it immediately or let it soak for awhile. I actually like to let mine sit for a few hours so the flavors in the fruit really come out!
Another benefit of detox water is stress relief. And I definitely need that now.
I know I’m still very early into the planning process, but finding wedding venues is so stressful! I feel like it is so hard to find a decent venue at a decent price! Plus, I want to take my time choosing but the date I’m thinking of is already taken at several venues I’ve looked at!
Ok, mini-vent over.
In the meantime I decided to be somewhat productive and get a short list of songs I would like the DJ to play at the reception. I don’t want to give them a full playlist, but instead I’ll give them a few songs I want them to play and tell them to play songs similar to that which will get everyone on the dance floor. I love dancing so the music has to be on point. So drinking Strawberry-Kiwi Detox Water and listening to dance music is making me groove around the house. No complaints here!
- 1 lemon, cut into slices
- 1 kiwi, peeled and sliced
- 6 strawberries, hulled and sliced lengthwise
- 3 3/4 cups cold water
- Combine all ingredients in a pitcher. Divide among 3 glasses.
- Tip: The flavor gets stronger the longer you let the flavors meld. I like to put the drink together and allow it to sit for several hours before enjoying.
