Apple cinnamon detox drink, this healthy drink happens to be my blog first anniversary post, wanted to post something healthy as the motto of my blog is “cook eat smile live healthy”. Thank you everyone who supported and motivated in my food blogging journey, hope to continue posting healthy recipes in future too.

Detox water is water infused with flavours and beneficial properties which help to burn calories naturally and boost the immune system. Apple cinnamon detox drink is one such water infused with flavours of various healthy ingredients. I got to know about detox drink from an Ayurveda doctor who says that any fruit or veggie flavour can be infused into water and thus making it healthy.

Firstly the main ingredient apple rich in beneficial photochemical, minerals, flavonoids, fibre helps in detoxification process. The citrus lemon is packed with vitamin C and helps in building the immunity. Ginger helps in easy digestion; cinnamon has antioxidants and anti-inflammatory properties. Sweetness is infused with honey which naturally fights with microbes. Mint adds freshness to the water. Well so many healthy ingredients in one, these days I make it a point to have this detox drink once a week.

This is one such healthy way to detox or flush the toxins from the body and further energize the body. This leaves you fresh for the day. There are other refreshing summer drink recipes on blog like fresh fig smoothie cucumber mint drink

My Notes:

The incubation period can be reduced to 2-3 hours and below method can be followed for reusing. The apple cinnamon mixture after sieving can be kept as it is in bottle, then fresh water can be added and incubated again. This method can be followed until the taste of detox water fades.
