As you know (or may not know yet), we need 8-12 cups of water everyday. I found it difficult to reach as I really can't drink that much plain water. However when the water is tasty and detox, that's another story.

Here are my favorite 4 recipes for detox water, they are really really easy to make but the taste and nutrition is so much better than plain water!

On the last step I will show you my flower ice cubes in the pictures! Enjoy!

Step 1: Recipe 1: Watermelon Detox Water

This is the best tasting recipe so far -- especially when it's summer!

You will need:
-- 1/4 Watermelon

-- 3-4 slices of lemon

-- 7-8 mint leaves

-- 2 bottles of water

Instruction:

Just simply cut watermelon into small cubes, put those cubes, slices of lemon and mint leaves into the water and wait for about 2 hours. Add ice cubes if you prefer.

Step 2: Recipe 2: Cucumber Detox Water

This is the most refreshing one among the four-- especially if you love the taste of cucumber!!

You will need:

-- 1 cucumber

-- 5-6 strawberries

-- 7-8 basil leaves (I used fresh ones for lighter taste)

-- 2 bottles of water

Instruction:

Just simply slice the cucumber and half the strawberries, put them along with the basil leaves into the water and wait for about 2 hours. Add ice cubes if you prefer.

Step 3: Recipe 3: Pineapple Detox Water

As you can see the other two recipes require 2 hours to soak the ingredients for the best taste. This pineapple detox will show you a faster way to do it--- no waiting time at all!

You will need:

-- 1/4 Pineapple

-- 5-6 mint leaves

-- 1 bottle of water (or more)

-- some ice cubes

-- a shaker

Instruction:

1. Cut the pineapple into cubes.

2. Put mint leaves into the shaker and smash them.

3. Put ice cubes and pineapple cubes into the shaker as well.

4. Shake Shake Shake Shake until you got the desired taste.

Step 4: Recipe 4: Citrus Detox Water

This recipe is definitely made for those citrus lovers!

You will need:

-- 1/2 Grapefruit

-- 1 orange

-- 2-3 slices of lime

-- 1 slice of lemon

-- optional: mint leaves

-- 2 bottles of water

Instruction:

Cut out the skin and remove the white tissues of grapefruit and orange, cut them into tubes. Slice the lime and lemon and put everything in the water and wait for about 30-40 minutes. Enjoy!!

Tip: The citrus one doesn't need that much waiting time as the first two recipes.

Step 5: Bonus: How to Make Flower Ice Cubes

As you can see in the first step, there are some beautiful flower ice cubes instead of ordinary ice cubes. These are very easy to make as well. Just buy a package of edible flowers, wash them, and put them into the ice tray before you pour in the water.

After freeze it, Viola!! Your beautiful ice cubes are ready to use!

(They are not functional, but they're really lovely and beautiful to use)

Thanks for the update I want to know that can we fruits instead of flowers or anything else
I want to know that can we use those flower ice cubes<br>
<p>Yes of course, you can see these ice cubes floating in my first and second recipes. But make sure you use edible flowers!</p>
<p>I'm going to give that pineapple one a try! What makes these recipes detoxifying? Is it simply the water moving through your system or do the fruit choices have special properties? Just curious.</p>
I love it I like the last one it is the best
<p>These look like excellent recipes. Thank you!</p>
<p>Recipes look tasty but the only things that detox you are your liver and kidneys.</p>
