It’s the NEW YEAR! It’s the time where we all obsess over New Years Resolutions, eating healthy, and realizing that Summer is quickly approaching. I try not to worry about those things too much (bring me all the cheese please!), but having a few recipes up my sleeve that make me feeling brighter and better is never a bad thing. A few years ago I remember Yolanda talking about the Master Cleanse on RHOBH (don’t judge) and I knew I had to at least give it a try. Cheese is my first addiction and reality tv is my second…sorry! It turns out in small doses and tweaked a bit, the Master Cleanse can be turned into this fun and tasty Warm Detox Lemonade, and it’s one of my favorite hot drinks to sip on a cold day. It makes me feel rejuvenated, lighter, and new, and that’s always nice!

Even when I lived in Florida after college, my friend would make fun of me for my hatred of the beach and all things swimsuits. Since I’ve been back in Missouri, I’ve been in a swimsuit about 2 times in 7 years. That’s the way I like it. So while some people might call this “Bikini Lemonade”, I’m not all about that. Just because I avoid swimsuits to a point that is extreme, I still want to feel recharged once in a while. This Detox Lemonade does the trick! And it’s not too nasty like some cleanse drinks. That’s a BIG plus!

I love the lemon/honey combo. Lemon is one of my favorite flavors, especially when sipped warm. Just purely delightful!

Does the lemon water have to be warm or hot. What about room temperature
    Becky Hardin
    The lemon water can be room temperature, you just pour it into the hot water. You can heat the entire thing a bit more if you prefer hotter. ENjoy!
      Suzanne Sanchez
      Ok will I still get the same benefits drinking lemon water room temperature versus hot or warm lemon water. Health wise. Just saying. Thank you
        Becky Hardin
        Yes, to me it just tastes better as a hot drink. Whichever way you prefer it is great!
Louise
What does this do for you exactly?
    Becky Hardin
    Lemons as well as the other ingredients help to promote good digestion, immune system, skin repair, is good for your urinary tract, and other benefits! It's not a cure for anything, it's just a healthy recipe to decrease bloat, etc.
Beth
Your first sentence, college is misspelled. 👍🏼
Ana Vílchez
For how long do we need to drink it? What do you recommend?
    Becky Hardin
    I don't use this as an actual cleanse...I just drink it from time to time. I wouldn't recommend it as a meal replacement or anything like that.
    Becky Hardin
    That being said you can drink them as much as you like (while also still eating). It's just a healthy sip :)
Denisse | Le Petit Eats
We drink these nonstop when we're feeling under the weather and it helps us kick whatever bug we have to the curb! You make them look so sunny and pretty enough to drink every day!
    Becky Hardin
    Thanks Denisse! That's an awesome idea about drinking them when you feel sick. A warm drink that's comforting and beneficial at the same time!
Rebecca
Can powdered ginger work as well? Not sure what you mean about ground ginger.
    Becky Hardin
    Yep, the same thing. My jar just says ground ginger :) Hope you love it!

Could I add 1 tsp of organic apple cider vinegar to the detox drink? if, so what benefit would i get?
    Becky Hardin
    You could! I don't know much about the benefits of apple cider to be honest, but I do know people add it to drinks sometimes for weight loss benefits. I haven't ever tried it so I'm not sure how it would taste! Hope you love it if you give it a try :)
Alyson
How long do you do this for?
    Becky Hardin
    I just meant this recipe to be a drink when needed or wanted, not as a meal replacement. You can sip it anytime you like! It's just a healthy drink that promotes digestion. Enjoy!
Cristy
Do you use real lemons for the lemon juice or do you think it would be same benefit with lemon juice in bottle?
Anna
Is it very spicy?
    Becky Hardin
    No it's not bad at all. If you're worried about the spice just use a bit less at first, taste and then add more if you're comfortable with the taste. Enjoy!
