Lemon Ginger Detox Drink

Lemon-Ginger-Detox-Drink

There’s nothing more refreshing than a cool drink mixed with a few tasty ingredients that delight the taste buds. But you don’t need to drive to your local coffee shop for an iced, sugary beverage filled with excess sugar and calories. And you don’t need to spend hours steeping tea or muddling fruit. Try our Lemon Ginger Detox Drink for a cooling beverage that offers the additional bonus of providing your body with a cleanse that flushes the fat away. Its two main ingredients are the perfect powerhouses for a great detox that will have you feeling as light as this drink tastes!

Ginger is a powerful detox ingredient that helps to kick start your metabolism. Sipping a ginger infused beverage will have your metabolism on the rise throughout the day, allowing you to flush fat even as you take in your daily meals, and will burn extra calories as you workout. Lemons are a natural detoxifier. And with theirย diuretic effect, your body will more easily shed unwanted toxins.

Simply add the juice of a half of a lemon to a glass of water, and then grate your ginger into the glass. It’s an easy prep way to detox and flush the fat away, and it’s a great way to hydrate while enjoying some vibrant, natural flavor!

      I've been on a sugar-free diet for medical reasons for 2 months now (4 more to go!). It's so hard! Sugar is in EVERYTHING! It's possible, but extremely limited. Very few cereals have 0g sugar and those without it usually have a sugar substitute; I finally found one in the organic aisle. Good luck!

      I have been on a sugar free diet for eleven years, with absolutely no cheats that entire time. You are right that it is in almost all packaged, processed food. I found that cooking in advance in large quantities and then freezing meal sized portions which are portable (in a lunchbox), allows me to have healthy "fast food" always on hand. I am an international flight attendant gone from home 21 days a month, so it is possible to eat this way even if you are constantly on the run. A word of warning…stay totally away from artificial sweeteners. They make you crave the real stuff. If you do this, you will find that it gets MUCH EASIER with time. Good luck!

            When you say whole foods, what do you mean?

          • kris  February 15, 2015

            whole foods are foods with one ingredient (carrot, celery, banana, chicken, fish, lean steak sweet potato). non-whole foods are processed, or have additives (like cereals, pop tarts, granola bars, breads, cold cuts, baked goods, pork fried rice, many packaged or frozen meals/foods). A good rule of thumb, is to shop the perimeter of the food store; mostly you will find fresh whole foods along the back and side walls of the grocery store (vegetables, fruit, meats, dairy). Best of luck to you! ๐Ÿ™‚

You can buy canned sprouts but instead, Bok choi, napa cabbage or green cabbage, thinly sliced can also stand in for the crunch of bean sprouts.

    Just a suggestion/modification to make this a little more 'user-friendly' or to make big batches (or for those of us who may not want the actual pieces of ginger floating in the water – it's a texture thing) – you can always do an infused water. It may not give 100 percent of the benefits that this does, though I would imagine it would have to be close – and if nothing else it makes your water yummier so you're more inclined to drink it. You can simply slice your lemon and your ginger then either tie them in a piece of mesh or cheesecloth and drop them into the water or get an infuser pitcher (I got a plastic one at Target last summer for about $7).

    This works great for all kinds of flavors, too. One of my favorites that I kept my fridge stocked with last summer was Orange-Strawberry-Mint. Yummy!

    I discovered this recipe (in a magazine) last summer. I made it in a large mason jar and took it to picnics, where I wanted something to drink but didn't want to drink soda or alcohol. (I kept it cold, rather than at room temperature.) I found it to be a nice alternative on a hot day. You can filter out the solids, although I like eating the ginger! BTW consider adding some of the lemon zest.

    I came across this recipe today. I started on Monday just drinking iced lemon water. With fresh squeezed lemon slices. I haven't done any excising this week to go along with this. I have noticed that my stomach is slimming down. I have no ginger root here as I would love to try this recipe out. The only thing close to ginger that I have here is Ginger Powder used for baking. I do plan on adding exercising in with what I have been doing. I feel better and I have noticed I have been sleeping better at night as well. I have been drinking 1 24oz. a day sometimes two glasses.

      Hi Mariam!

      The ingredients in this recipe (ginger, lemon, and water) are all safe to consume while pregnant. Ginger is also known to help with morning sickness! However, if you’re unsure if something is safe it’s always best to check with your doctor.

    Once the ginger sits in the water for a few minutes should I strain it out.? It seemed to be alot of ginger to ingest.

      The idea is to ingest the whole section, but if you aren’t a fan of ginger, we’d recommend straining a little out first.

    I’M doing this diet it’s called Diet of Hope. It’s under the supervision of the doctors. There is only two in Tucson Arizona and in Mexico. I have been with this program since May 2016 and I have lost 24 pounds but can’t seem to lose the stomach cause I can’t go to the bathroom like I should. I have shoulder problems and is taking a lot of pain meds that keeps me constipated and I can’t do exercises cause I can’t hardly use my arms and lower back pain. So is this something that I can do to lose the stomach weight. So what do you recommend.

      Gloria, In addition to a healthy diet, you may want to consider using portion control. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m eating portion control but not having success with the stomach weight loss but I’ll try it and hope that I can lose some of the stomach weight loss. Thanks for the info. I’ll let you know how it works out for the stomach weight loss.

    Is it important to drink the grated ginger or does drinking the ginger infused water give you the same benefits (leaving all the chunks at the bottom of the glass)?

    Reply
    • Nichole  October 22, 2016

      Hi Chris,

      No need to drink the chunks! The infused water will still have the benefits. You can eat the ginger chunks if you’d like!

      Yes – you can add honey. Be sure to use pure honey as this has the most benefit! Local pure honey would be best.

    Can I use bottled lemon juice to make this easier every morning? I can buy organic pure. Do you think it changes the value of it not using the fresh cut lemon?

      As long as you’re using 100% lemon juice you should be getting the same value.

    I started drinking this 4 months ago. I found it one day I was looking for a easy detox. I stopped drinking pop period. I eat out less often and sweets are to feed the crave and move on. I drunk it every morning with a banana. I have lost 3 sizes in pants and started working out since then. I hope this helps and gives people motivation to try it before they say it doesn’t work. We ate all different and I wish you all the best in your efforts.

    I’m confused on the grated ginger.. is it grated directly into the water and you drink/chew the bits? Or I read somewhere randomly in the comments that you grate and then squeeze the grated ginger for the juice… then throw away gratings or toss gratings into drink and drink/chew then? Could you be a bit more specific on what to do with the ginger exactly.. thank you!
