Detox-Water-RecipeHere are a few of my favorite water recipes.  I like to make these before heading out to the pool, a BBQ or family get together.  These water recipes are also nice to have at special gatherings like bridal or baby showers, brunches or holidays… they not only look pretty but help us all by drinking water!  Detox water recipes work well in individual glasses or prepared in a large glass pitcher.

  • Hint of Mint: iced flat water with fresh mint leaves
  • Love-me-some-lemon: iced sparkling water with lots of lemon slices
  • Mom’s Spa Day: iced flat water with cucumber slices

On the go? Take some mason detox waters with you! Start by layering in your fresh fruit and herbs. Load of the ice and then add your filtered water. The longer the fruit sits in the water, the more yummy the detox water becomes! I never leave home without it!
