Preparation Steps on making lemon detox water
Although no precise measurements are usually necessary when making lemon detox water, a good balance can be achieved with the following in ingredients and utensils :
- 2 fresh lemons
- 600ml of clean water
- Manual juice extractor
- Water bottle
Halve one lemon, and remove the seeds.
Squeeze out the juice from the halved lemon using the juice extractor,
Take the second lemon and cut it into thin slices, fill your water bottle with clean water, and add the juice of the halved lemon into the water. Also put your lemon slices into the bottle
Allow it to sit in your fridge for 1 hour, before serving. You can refill the bottle with more water 2 to 3 times during the day, before it begins to lose flavour.
Note : lemon detox water is perfect to take with you and sip all day like regular water or as a weight loss treat. To make it easier on the go , I recommend a portable water bottle which can be tucked into your bag.
