Recipes That Will Put Your Detox Water to Shame
We all know sugary drinks are unhealthy for us, so why is it we chose to reach for a sugary alternative when we are thirsty or sluggish? Taste. Juices and Soda are tempting because of the sugars and artificial flavors that trick our bodies into thinking wee need them When in reality they only offer unwanted calories to our diet and eventually unwanted weight and health issues. The best option to replenish and hydrate is obviously water (we all know this) but water isn’t always the most satisfying. To encourage you to gulp down the good stuff we at Pressa Bottle created a product that puts all infuser bottles to shame.
Detox water and infused water offer minimal taste because most of the juice remains trapped inside the fruit. Since the juice is trapped inside the fruit this means that most of the taste in your water is from the oil of peel or the skin. Ever noticed how the first water you make has flavor and your refill doesn’t? This is why, the juice is still trapped inside the fruit.
So ditch your detox water bottle and stop searching infused water recipes because without pressing the fruit, you won’t get any flavor!
Here are some of or favorite detox water recipes you can crush in your Pressa Bottle:
Cinnamon sticks with an apple press
To kick off your morning it’s nice to have a warm drink. We love placing cinnamon sticks in the bottom of our Pressa Bottle, adding some apple followed by hot water. The hot water softens the apple so the press can juice the delicious juice and nutrients into your water.
- 2 Cinnamon Sticks
- ½ Apple
Lemon, lime and grapefruit accompanied by cucumber inside the bottle for a summer refresher. Aside from a delicious taste, this recipe offers a great dose of Vitamin C and antioxidants but that’s not all. This recipe can protect against immune system deficiencies, cardiovascular disease, prenatal health problems, eye disease, and even skin wrinkling.
- 2 Lemon Slices
- 2 Lime Slice
- 2 Grapefruit Slices
- 3 Cucumber Slices
Lemon and Berry Press
Minimal ingredients make this delicious recipe extra quick to make. Citrus is a favorite for Pressa Bottle and lemon always packs a flavorful punch! We like to throw this one together and head out the door when we’re running late. When pressed the berries release a very sweet juice while the lemons tart juice gives it some zing! Infusing using a lemon is frustrating because you never seem to get enough juice from it.
- ½ Lemon
- Berries of your choice
Crushing fruit slowly throughout the day allows you to take your detox water to the next level. Using Pressa Bottle, your first water tastes just as good as your last!
