Every now and then we owe our bodies a mini detox, especially after we’ve treated ourselves to one too many sweets this summer (thanks to National Ice Cream Month, we’ve had one too many scoops of chocolate chip cookie dough and pistachio almond). Since following a strict juice cleanse isn’t considered practical or delicious by everyone, we’ve found the perfect solution to get your detox in without having to sacrifice any meal or major food group. Thanks to YouTube fitness guru, Cassey Ho, we’ve got a detox to accentuate beautiful skin and to control those annoying cravings.
After a weekend filled with unhealthy eats and frozen treats, chances are you’re feeling bloated. Instead of going crazy with juice diets, the widely followed Blogilates founder has a recipe for Detox Water that can help you control your cravings and even contribute to beautiful skin. Besides all of the benefits that this beverage has, it’s also simple to make. You only need five ingredients, not including ice and water, and these ingredients combined can work many wonders for your health.
The apples and strawberries not only fill your ice cold glass with sweet flavor, but they can help make your skin look better and even prevent sagging. The lemon and fresh mint leaves aid digestion, and the cinnamon that tops it off is the key to managing blood sugar levels.
Together, these ingredients form a delicious and beneficial twist on water that serves as a great detox for your body.
Find the full recipe on the Blogilates blog, and keep up with Cassey for more healthy recipes and workout videos.
