When many of us hear the words “cleansing” or “detox” we associate it with some kind of fast or diet plan. But simple, DIY cleansing drinks can be a great substitute for sugary drinks like soda or store bought juice. They can also help to naturally boost energy, reduce inflammation, cleanse the liver and promote healthy skin!
Below we’ve listed 4 of our favorite, easy-to-make, cleansing and detoxifying drinks to sip on all day long. Even though you can drink each of these alone, the cleansing benefits perform best when combined with a high-quality supplement like the Parker Naturals Intestinal Cleanse.
1. Refreshing Watermelon, Mint and Lime Drink
This refreshing, delicious and nutritious drink can be made in batches so that you can enjoy it over time or even add some to a water bottle to bring to work with you! The mint in this drink helps the smooth flow of bile from the liver to the small intestine to break down fats.(1) The watermelon contains citrulline that helps aid the kidneys in flushing out ammonia (2) and the lime is very helpful in regulating digestion. It helps with gastritis, heartburn, and constipation.
HOW TO MAKE: Mix 12 ounces of water, 2 cups of cubed watermelon, wedges of one lime and a handful of fresh mint leave in a container. Let them all sit for 3-5 hours or overnight in the refrigerator. Add ice to your glass before enjoying!
2. Beetroot and Mint Juice
Beets are rich in betalains which can help in detoxification. They are an excellent source of antioxidants have anti-inflammatory properties (3). In addition to what we said mint does in the last drink, mint can also help cool your digestive tract. Relaxing the muscles of the stomach and adding a delicious flavor to this drink.
HOW TO MAKE: Mix one scoop of Parker Naturals Beetroot Powder with 8-10 ounces of water and a few leaves of fresh mint into a blender. Blend and drink over ice.
3. Matcha Tea
Matcha has become more and more popular in recent years mostly because of it being offered as a healthy alternative to coffee. Matcha tea has three times as much caffeine and antioxidants than green tea, but still less caffeine than coffee. Along with its amazing weight loss benefits, matcha has also been found to help reduce inflammation, protect the skin, and even out your skin tone!
You can use matcha in many different ways but here’s HOW TO MAKE A SIMPLE MATCHA LATTE:
Sift 1 ½ teaspoons of Parker Naturals Matcha Powder into a cup. Add 1 tablespoon hot water and stir until there are no lumps. Stir in 2 teaspoons of honey and add ¾ cup or milk. You can substitute whole milk for almond or coconut milk as well. Enjoy.
4. Apple Cider Vinegar Detoxifying Drink
Pretty much everyone knows how amazing apple cider vinegar is for you. Its health benefits range from weight loss, to heartburn relief, from reducing dandruff to alleviating allergies. It has been used for centuries to promote health and wellbeing. This detoxifying drink doesn’t only feature ACV but also lemons which help cut down extra body fat by helping in mobilizing bile from the liver to the small intestine (4) and cinnamon which helps to reduce weight by improving insulin sensitivity (5), (6).
HOW TO MAKE: Mix 12 ounces of water with 2 tablespoons of apple cider vinegar, lemon juice from 1/2 a lemon, a teaspoon of cinnamon and slices from 1/2 an apple. Let sit for 3-5 hours or overnight. Drink cold or warm.
