Lemon Cucumber Water Detox:

  • 1 lemon washed and sliced
  • ½ cucumber washed and sliced
  • 2 liters water

Additional Add-Ins:

  • 1 lime washed and sliced
  • 1 inch ginger peeled and sliced
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves washed
  • 1 cup fresh basil leaves washed


  • To a carafe or pitcher, add all the fruit, vegetables and herbs.
  • Use a muddler (or potato masher) to gently mash the ingredients to release their flavors.
  • Add the water, mix together, and let marinate for 2 hours in the fridge before serving.

Special Tips on Making Fruit Infused Water Recipes:

  • Use a Fruit Infused Water Pitcher to make these drinks! The canister in the center of the pitcher will hold the ingredients submerged. This will intensify the flavor!
  • If you don't have a fruit infused pitcher, add 3 cups of ice to the top of the water. Do not mix, but instead add to the fridge. As the ice slowly melts it will keep the ingredients submerged longer. This will intensify the flavor!

  3. 4 stars
    I do trust all of the ideas you have offered to your post.
    They’re really convincing and can certainly work. Still, the posts are
    too brief for beginners. Could you please prolong them a bit
    from subsequent time? Thank you for the post.

  4. This is delicious! Keeps me from craving the sweet tea (cut out sugar!) and unnecessary snacking. I added frozen raspberries on day two, and it is great! Day 3 of the same fruit and flavor is still going strong! I was wondering though, any suggestions for what to do with the fruits when changing pitchers/flavors? Maybe blender with ice for a smoothie?

  5. Love this website. Do you think you could use bottled lemon juice instead of fresh lemon? It’s all I have on hand right now.

  6. I found you through pinterest and started checking out other drink recipes, i’ve tried this one and it tastes great, I usually hate flavored water but I love this one it tastes really fresh, I’ll keep checking for more posts, keep on the good work 🙂

  7. Has anyone else had detox symptoms after drinking this? I drank it for a day and a half and then felt like I had the flu. Two days later, I had more energy than I have had in a loooong time. Flushed me out I guess.

  8. Oh i eat, i actually have to eat more because with hypothyroidism, if i drastically change my diet it stresses my body, if i change my diet more than 100 calories a week it panics and holds on to everything!, but simply just adding these waters to my diet has taken me down 25 lbs, i actually do not have facebook, but you are more than welcome to share my story with all of your friends and followers if you would like!

  9. TWENTY FIVE POUNDS IN 2 WEEKS!!!! That is amazing, good for you! Check out my facebook page, we have a weekly weight loss competition and I am sure you will win one week!!

    You are eating right? I want to make sure you are eating too 🙂

    I always give people the same 4 goals to work on:

    1. Drink a gallon of water a day.
    2. Remove all processed foods and fake sugars from your diet.
    3. Move your body more.
    4. Count your calories. Take your goal weight and add a zero to the end, that is how many calories you should have each day.

    Hope to see you on facebook!

  10. Just wish to say your article is as astounding. The clarity to your publish
    is simply great and i can assume you’re knowledgeable on this subject. Well along with your permission allow me to seize your feed to stay updated with imminent post. Thanks one million and please keep up the enjoyable work.

  11. Add Mint leaves to this drink!
    if you go out and buy some fresh mint
    take 2-3 leaves and put them in a small bowl with 1/2tsp water,
    mash them up with a spoon (yes there will be some chunks left)
    and then pour it in your pitcher a long with 4-5 whole leaves
    it gives the water an awesome crisp fresh taste and its also
    a quick fix for a tummy ache!
    just a suggestion!
    Thank you for posting these wonderful drinks
    im 17 weigh 270 lbs
    i have pcos and hypothyroidism
    NOTHING has helped me lose weight in the past but this works
    your waters alone have helped my lose 25 lbs in the past 2 thats it 2 weeks
    thank you so much
    god bless you

  12. I am game to try your recipe for lemon and cucumber water, because I tried one the other day that called for 2 lemon and a half of a cucumber for 3 qts of water and that was just awful, I couldn’t make myself drink it, I tried though..lol

  13. I Hate drinking water! I am starting to make changes for a healthier lifestyle. Within the last 7 years I went from a size 1 to a size 12. I am starting to change things around for myself and I know the importance of drinking lots of water, so I made this today & I Love it! Enjoying some right now!

  14. Whatever you have in the house, the bigger the better 🙂

    Don’t go buy anything special for this recipe, even a sun tea pitcher will work wonderfully!


  15. It has a lot of recipes for vegetarians and tips specifically for vegetarians too! I think you will LOVE it! She is coming out with a new book called Cook Yourself Sexy soon, you can pre order it on Amazon too. You may even get a deal if you get both 🙂


  16. Where can I find the watermelon rosemary and mango basil? I had the apple cinnamon today and tomorrow I have the cucumber lemon ready to go. Really liking them!

  17. I am going to be checking out this book. I have researched it a bit because I am vegetarian and when I buy cookbooks I find I rarely use them. It the reviews on amazon look promising!

  18. Hi Alexandria,

    Thanks so much for stopping by and letting me know 🙂 You just made my day! The Apple Cinnamon is really good, so is the Watermelon Rosemary and Mango Basil YUM YUM!


  19. I love this!! I started it as a way to get my fiancee and I to drink more water and he was super skeptical but ended up loving it. Now he asks that I make this all the time. Making the Apple Cinnamon water next!

  20. I am trying out a pineapple drink recipe today also. I guess great minds think alike, WAY TO GO MOM 🙂


  21. Mel❤ (@EdwardsSexyMrs)

    I’m in love with this combination!

    I came home yesterday and found that my mom added some pineapple to it. I freaked out a bit, cause I don’t like to change it but it was really good. 😀

  22. Have you tried “sassy water?” It’s similar except you add mint leaves and some grated ginger. It’s quite delicious and refreshing.
