Easy Detox Drink

The Simple, Easy Detox Drink
We have all heard of it, the dreadful detox. It sounds absoluetly miserable to be on a liquid diet for days. I found this little recipe for a single detox drink on Facebook. I have tried this three times only one meal a day. Some benefits to detoxing are it helps boost energy, rids the body of excess waste, helps with weight loss, helps build stronger immune system, improves skin, improves breath, promotes healthy diet changes, helps you think more clearly, gives you a lighter feeling, provides anti-aging benefits, and an improved sense of well-being according to bembu.com.
This is the recipe. How simple is this?! I had all of these ingredients already. This is so convenient for me because, as you know from a previous blog, I drink apple cider vinegar every day for its health benefits. Apple cider vinegar does not taste great on its own; this way, I can get the ACV (apple cider vinegar) I want without the awful taste! Of course you shouldn't detox every day. I would drink this when I am feeling I have been eating bad or my digestive system isn't working properly.


Here are the exact ingredients I used. One alteration I would recommend is to add less cinnamon. When I finished the drink after continuous shaking there was a lot of excess cinnamon on the bottom (and I don't care to do the cinnamon challenge). I think this tastes pretty good. I do put it in my shaker as I said and keep shaking it as I drink. You should drink this pretty fast and on it's own. I would also recommend 16 oz of water to really blend all of the ingredients, especially if you are skeptical about tasting the ACV. I couldn't taste the ACV when I drank this.
