The Detox Drink That Works Wonders: Lemon, Ginger & Garlic Detox


If there's something I rather enjoy doing it's eating. I love food and it's a problem, especially when I get bloated super easy. The solution? Detoxes. Any sought of special drink I can try to ease my tum-tum, I'm on it. So when Mum found a new one, of course I was intrigued. I've been using it now for the past two weeks every night before bed and it's been working wonders for me, so I thought I would share. 

This drink revolves around lemon, ginger and garlic; three ingredients that are great for immune boosting and weight loss. You usually find these in a lot of detox drink and food lists, so combining them is ideal. It's a super easy drink to make and it's tried and tested by me; trust me, it's worth it.

Here's what you need: (For two people serving in small glasses)

~ 4 cloves of garlic
~ A piece of ginger, unpeeled (about a thumb's length long)
~ 1/4 slice of lemon
~ 1 mug of hot water
~ 1 mug of room temperature water
~ 1 jug, a grater and a sieve.

Recipe:
1. Peel your garlic cloves and cut off root end. Wash them thoroughly along with your unpeeled ginger.
2. Grate your garlic gloves and your ginger into a large jug. 
3. Take your slice of lemon and squeeze the juice into the jug. Once squeezed substantially, drop the lemon slice into the jug too. 
4. Pour one mug of hot water and one mug of room temp water into the jug. 
5. Let the drink stew for an hour or more.
6. When you're ready to drink, take a small glass and pass the detox juice through a sieve into the glass. 

Then drink!

I will warn you, the taste is strong and not appealing in the slightest... unless you like the strong tastes of ginger, garlic and lemon together in one. But I urge you, if you're having a bit of a bloating issue or you want to detox your body, this is the ideal drink for you. It's super easy to make and is definitely worth it. I make it fresh everyday and I suggest you do the same to get the best out of the drink. 

Are there any detox drinks you swear by? I'd love to know below and if you've ever tried this one, then let me know!

Hoping you're all staying safe and well. Sending you lots of love,
