It’s been nearly a year since I shared the first in our series of natural homemade detox drink recipes, the ultra-popular Apple Cider Vinegar Drink! Since then we’ve done homemade Detox Tea, Beet Detox Juice, Lemon Water, and more! If you’re a smoothie-lover like I am you’ve got to check out our Superfood Smoothies and Best Healthy Green Smoothies

As those recipes have been so popular here, and I constantly get requests for more, I thought I’d round up the favorites all in one place. Be sure to pin the image above to Pinterest to reference later. I’ll continue to add to the list of detox drink recipes as they are posted in the future. 

If you’re really in need of a reset, I highly recommend fasting. The easiest way to do this is through a Fasting Mimicking Diet such as Prolon, which my friends and I do yearly. You can get 10% through my affiliate link below. 

What are Detox Drinks? 

A bottle of Bragg apple cider vinegar is poured into lemon water for a healthy and tasty apple cider vinegar detox drink for detox and weight loss.

We all tend to overindulge from time to time. Maybe it’s a dip into the kids’ Halloween candy stash, or two too many glasses of wine with girlfriends. Or maybe it’s been days, weeks, or years of unhealthy habits and you’re ready for a reset. 

Detox drinks are beverages made with functional ingredients that are thought to support the body’s detox organs. There are many ways to make detox drinks, depending on your taste preferences and goals. 

Do Detox Drinks Work? 

I’ve said it before in all of the recipes below, but it’s worth repeating. Consuming specific ingredients is not going to un-do damage from unhealthy habits, nor will cleanse or detoxify the body. However, I firmly believe that we can use food as medicine or poison. As Hippocrates said, “Let food be thy medicine.” Foods have been used for thousands of years for medicinal purposes. 

Detox drinks should contain ingredients that support the body’s own detox organs. The six organs that work to detox the body, according to MGBfood.com are: 

  • liver
  • kidneys
  • lungs
  • lymph
  • colon
  • skin

Healthy detoxifying ingredients like carrots,beets, ginger, lemon, and apples ready to be made into detox drinks.

Activated Charcoal Detox Drinks

This ingredient is often included in detox drinks. You may have even noticed black activated charcoal lemonade at trendy juice bars. I wanted to mention that I don’t recommend using activated charcoal on a regular basis. It works by attaching itself to chemicals, which is great if you’ve recently ingested something toxic. However, it can also interfere with medications and make foods less nutritious by binding to vitamins.
