So it's safe to say they're not worth it! If you're in the mood of something sweet that also helps cleanse your body, then look no further than Detox Water. Get get your sweet fix with this thirst quenching alternative. The fruit infused water is also purported to burn fat, depending on the ingredients you use. It's great because it's so easy to throw together and the world is your oyster when it comes to the endless flavor options.
Here are a few popular combinations:
- Strawberry, Lemon & Basil* This is gorge!
- Giner & Apple
- Mint & Cucumber

- Ginger, Lime & Lemon
You can use a big jug, a mason jar, a cup- anything you want really. I always crush the fruit slightly into whatever I'm using, so they infuse more with the water. I also like to leave them in the fridge for a couple of hours to get a nice cool refreshing taste.
