Lemon Detox Recipes

Lemon has long since been known as one of the best food ingredients for detoxing your body. It really helps to cleanse your system, primarily with your liver, kidneys, and gallbladder, not to mention helping to restart your entire body. Take a look at some of these delicious lemon-based detox recipes.

Detox Salad with Lemon

The first recipe you can try out that incorporates a detox with lemon is making a detox salad. This salad uses as many different detox foods as you want, then naturally has plenty of lemon flavor. Think of fruits and veggies you believe taste good with lemon, such as carrots, kale or spinach, strawberries, beets, avocado, and bell peppers. You can also add in some nuts for more protein and extra superfood goodness, like walnuts or almonds. Add in some lemon juice, or even make your own dressing with lemon juice, your choice of oil, and garlic.

Lemon Detox Drink

If you don’t want to have something to eat, there are also lots of drink recipes out there. One is a simple lemon detox drink that includes just a few ingredients. You might recognize this type of recipe as something that you do with a “Master Cleanse”, but this is not necessary to benefit from the detox drink. You can also enjoy it as a way to detox your body by replacing other drinks in your regular diet. A good lemon detox drink includes lemon juice, cayenne pepper, cinnamon pepper, and apple cider vinegar. It should be mostly water, and also have sweetener like honey.

Tea with Lemon

You can also have just about any time of healthy tea, add some lemon, and turn it into a detox tea. However, in terms of tea, you want to try to buy organic and make your own homemade tea or at least tea bags that contain loose tea leaves in them. A good tea uses the tea leaves, lemon juice, ginger, and turmeric. You are adding in lots of superfoods to add to the health of this detox tea. If you like adding lemon, remember to use raw fresh squeezed lemon juice and not the processed, bottled variety.

Lemon Ice Cubes

Don’t want to worry about a complicated lemon detox recipe? You don’t have to. All you need to do is make some detox lemon ice cubes, add them to your water, and you’re good to go. You want to use filtered spring water, and the juice of organic lemons when making the ice cubes.  Try to use non-plastics trays as well to avoid the micro-plastics.
