Perhaps one of the best things about detox water is just how easy it is to make. Simply slice up the ingredients, add some water, and let it stay so that the flavor and nutrients can infuse into the water.
But if you really want to step up your infused water game, follow these 4 simple steps and you’ll have perfect detox water in no time!
- Infuse for two + Hours – The flavors and nutrients won’t infuse into the water right an away. I generally make my detox water the night before and let it infuse in the fridge overnight.
- Infuse at room temperature – Basic chemistry says that water-based reactions happen faster at higher temperatures. Let the water stay at room temperature if you want to speed up the infusion – just don’t leave it out for more than a few hours unrefrigerated.
- Thinly slice – There is another way to speed up the infusion process is to tiny slice your ingredients. That makes it easier for the water to soak through and absorb all the wonderful nutrients and flavors!
- Use a glass pitcher – This tip is really important. Acidic ingrediеnts like lemon cаn eat away at plastic containers especially over long periods of time while you let your water infuse. The last thing you want in your healthy detox shake is a bunch of plastic chemicals, so be sure to use a glass pitcher.
- Enjoy your Detox Shake 🙂
