My delicious detox water recipe is infused with antioxidant-rich raspberries, lemon, dates and lemon essential oil. These powerful ingredients help supercharge your water with important nutrients so your body can flush out toxins, reduce chronic inflammation, reduce bloating, and help your digestive system function optimally. Drinking plenty of spring or purified water every day will also help you stay hydrated and energized especially when you combine it with healthy food choices and regular exercise.
I love creating different nutrient-rich waters with a variety of fresh fruits, essential oils, and fresh herbs to infuse wonderful flavor and great benefits into my water. These infused waters are a great replacement for health-depleting commercial beverages like sodas. I drink lemon water every morning and it really helps me start my day off right.
I get quite a few emails asking what I drink on a daily basis so I decided to start sharing some of my favorite infused water recipes that I use every day to fight inflammation, support detoxification, stay energized, help support my digestive system, and maintain my optimal weight. I hope these recipes will help all of you feel wonderful!

Lemons are an alkaline fruit which combines beautifully with so many different foods. Lemons are a powerful detoxifier that is high in antioxidants, vitamin C, potassium, magnesium, and calcium, important nutrients that all work together to help the body reduce chronic inflammation, neutralize free radicals, and support the liver. Lemons are also an aid to relieve constipation and are a great fruit to include in any cleanse.
I used lemon essential oil in my infused water recipe. The brand I use comes from Italian lemons which have wonderful purity, potency, and health benefits. This delightful lemon essential oil is rich in antioxidants and great for detoxification. This versatile essential oil can be used aromatically, topically and internally. It is also considered a powerful cleanser and purifying agent that you can use to keep your home fresh and clean.
I like adding essential oils in my recipes because of the fantastic flavor, aroma, and extra benefits that they add to my recipes. The information for dietary use on the label of a essential oil bottle means that this lemon essential oil can be used internally as a dietary supplement. If you have a lemon essential oil that does not say safe for internal or dietary use please do not use it in this recipe!

Flat Belly Raspberry Lemon Detox Water
Raw Vegan, Paleo, Dairy-Free, Gluten-Free, Sugar-Free
Makes 64 ounces or 2 quarts
2 cups organic raspberries
8 cups (64 ounces) spring or filtered water
1 large organic lemon—cut into ½- inch slices
2 dried Medjool dates (optional but adds nice sweetness to the water)
1 drop lemon essential oil-optional
1 gallon clean glass jar with lid (here’s a good option)
1. Place raspberries into the bottom of your jar. Add the dates if using then layer the lemon slices on top. Pour water into jar and place lid on top.
2. Place water into the refrigerator and let infuse for 1 hour. Remove the lemon slices and squeeze their juice into the infused raspberry lemon water. I like to remove the lemon slices after 1 hour so the water doesn’t get too bitter from the rinds.
3. Add the lemon essential oil drop into the jar. Stir the water with a spoon, cover with a lid and put water back into the refrigerator overnight for the best flavor. You can leave the raspberries and dates in the infused water for up to 2 days before you need to strain them out of the water. You can eat or compost the raspberries and dates rather than just throwing them away. Most of the flavor will be extracted from the raspberries but you can still add them into a smoothie with the dates and other fruits and veggies. Enjoy!
Note: I usually drink all or most of this water in one day so it never lasts me for 2 days!
