Tired of drinking tasteless bottled water? Sick of colorful soft drinks that look beautiful but may contain artificial colour?

How about making 100 per cent natural and nutritive water that tastes good and can purify your body?

Here are the recipes to make seven kinds of detox waters.

Raspberry and mint water

Blend cold water, 2 spoonfuls of fresh raspberries and 2 spoonfuls of fresh mint together. This low-calorie water can clean your intestines and stomach, a good choice if you are on a diet.

Cucumber and strawberry water

Put 3-4 slices of cucumber, 3-4 slices of strawberry and some chopped perilla leaves into a jar of cold water. Done! Cucumber can add moisture to your skin and strawberry adds a nice scent to the water.

Strawberry and lemon water

If you have a sweet tooth, strawberry could be a healthier replacement for sweets. Blend sliced strawberries and 3-4 slices of lemon in cold water. Add some mint if you want a cooler taste.

Orange, blueberry and lavender water

With a colour combination of bright orange, dark blue and light violet, this detox water looks like a water-colour painting. It can also satisfy your need for a lovely drink. Just make sure that the lavender added comes from dried lavender flowers.

Melon water

You might have tried to juice watermelon but you can try adding cubes of melon to icy water. This detox water is good to your heart and cerebral vessels.

Grapefruit, cucumber and mint water

Cut a grapefruit and cucumber into pieces and add to cold water with some peppermint. The water tastes very fresh.

Apple and cinnamon water

Cinnamon is not only used in cinnamon rolls. It can also be used in detox water in summer. Boil the cinnamon in a pot for 10 minutes first. When the soup cools down, add pieces of fresh apple. This combination can help heal wounds.
