[I made this Everyday Detox Spritzer for Earth Fare! It’s easy and a yummy way to help your body do some gentle detoxing 😊]

I’ve never been one for harsh detoxes. I’d much rather help my body out everyday by giving it what it needs to detox effectively.

This detox spritzer has ginger, lemon juice, apple cider vinegar, and raw honey. Here’s why these ingredients are great in a detox drink:

Ginger – Ginger cleanses the body by improving digestion and circulation, and can help to remove the build-up of waste and toxins in the colon, liver, and other organs

Lemon Juice – Freshly squeezed lemon juice contains Vitamin C, and helps balance blood sugar. Lemon also has an alkaline effect on the body, helping to regulate PH.

Apple Cider Vinegar – Raw, unfiltered apple cider vinegar contains friendly bacteria that improve digestion, immunity, and the body’s natural ability to detoxify.

Raw HoneyRaw honey contains antioxidants, and also has natural antibacterial and antifungal properties. It’s a sweetener sourced straight from nature!

All of these ingredients together are not only powerful for aiding in overall health and detox, they make the base for a refreshing spritzer that you can drink every day!

First Step: Making the Elixir 

You’ll want to start by slicing the ginger very thinly into a mug or bowl, and then covering it with a little bit of boiling water. 

This releases the flavor and active ingredients from the ginger. After it’s steeped for a few minutes and the water has cooled slightly, you can stir in your raw honey, lemon juice, and apple cider vinegar.

Second Step: Making the Spritzer 

This recipe is enough for 2 spritzers, so you can divide your elixir (the ginger, honey, apple cider vinegar, and lemon juice mixture) into two glasses – with or without ice! Your preference. 

Then, all that’s left to do is pour some flavored sparkling water over the top and mix to combine. My favorite flavor is Grapefruit, but choose whichever flavor you love!

This detox spritzer is something I love in the afternoon, when I’m craving something with bubbles. 

If you get that craving too and usually reach for a soda, this is a perfect healthy substitute.

If you work away from home, you can easily make the elixir in advance and then add your can of sparkling water when the afternoon craving strikes.
