11 detox drinks: how to drain excess fluids and purify the body

Every now and then our body needs a detox. Stress, a high-calorie diet, swelling and many other small problems, often annoying, but with these tips, you will find your shape and well-being in no time.

What does it mean to do a detox? Often we need to cleanse our digestive system, accelerating the elimination of toxins, excreting excess fluids and revitalize our body.
The causes are different, maybe we overdid the food, or we were not well or we feel too stressed. A little detox helps to regain physical and mental well-being.

Flavored water with fruits and vegetables, vitamin smoothies, drinks rich in superfood or a light broth, here is 11 detox drinks full of recipes to purify the body.

Cucumber-based smoothies to include in your diet

According to some information published in the magazine Phytotherapy, cucumber is a food known for its high water content and low calorie intake. Furthermore, it is attributed antioxidant, antidiabetic and lipid-lowering properties. Thanks to all of this, it is a vegetable suitable for hydrating us, taking care of our weight and promoting our health.

However, it is important to clarify that no food, in itself, is able to offer the body "miraculous" effects. This is why these cucumber-based smoothies should only be considered as a complement to a healthy and balanced diet, which includes all types of nutrients.

1. Cucumber and pineapple smoothie

An article published in Encyclopedia of Food and Health points out that pineapple is a low calorie fruit rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, minerals and fiber. Furthermore, provides an enzyme called "bromelain", which gives it antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties.

For the reasons mentioned, this delicious cucumber and pineapple smoothie is a good complement to promote digestion, reduce swelling and strengthen the immune system.


  • A cucumber.
  • 1 cup of pineapple (150 g)
  • 3 glasses of cold water (600 ml).
  • Add 2 tablespoons of honey (50 g).


  • First, wash the cucumber and, without peeling it, cut it into small pieces. Then, peel the pineapple and cut it.
  • Then, put both in the blender glass, pour in the water and blend for 1 minute.
  • Finally, serve the smoothie in a glass and add the honey.

Mode of consumption

  • Drink a glass of this smoothie for breakfast for 1 week.
  • For best results, we suggest you drink it without filtering it first: in this way you will absorb all the fiber.

2. Cucumber and apple smoothie

Another excellent complement to the properties of cucumber is made up of none other than apple. This food, in addition to having a delicious flavor, contains dietary fiber, vitamins, minerals and antioxidants.

According to research published by the magazine Nutrients, its consumption regulates the intestinal microbiota and promotes the prevention of cardiovascular diseases.


  • 1 cucumber.
  • 1 stalk of celery.
  • Honey (to taste).
  • 4 glasses of water (800 ml).
  • 1 apple of any color.


  • First, wash the apple, cucumber and celery.
  • Cut all the ingredients and remove the seeds from the apple.
  • Then, put everything in the blender, pour in the water and blend until you get a homogeneous mixture.
  • Finally, serve it in a cup and add the honey (in moderation).

3. Cucumber and tomato smoothie

Another cucumber-based smoothie that you can take advantage of to refresh and nourish yourself is the one that contains tomato. According to some information published in Phytojournal, this vegetable is a source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin E and lycopene, nutrients that help promote the well-being of the body.

Its consumption, just like that of cucumber, stimulates digestive health, fights inflammation and reduces the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition, having a satiating effect, it also contributes to healthy weight loss.

Egg Benedict with whole egg hollandaise sauce, wholemeal English muffin, pork-free bacon, light pancakes with applesauce and orange, lemon and cucumber smoothie

Prepare the English muffins: let the water and milk cool on a very low heat, remove from heat then add the sugar and yeast. Let it rest for 10 minutes then pour the two flours on the work surface and start kneading by adding the liquid. Add the salt and work for about 10 minutes (I in the mixer) until you get a smooth dough. Let it rise in a greased bowl, until it doubles in volume.
Then deflate the dough and roll it out to a thickness of about one and a half cm. Cut out many 7.5 cm diameter circles and let them rest covered with a cloth for about 20 minutes.
Heat a cast iron skillet over medium heat and cook the muffins a few at a time for 4/5 minutes per side.
If they look raw on the sides, put them in the oven for a few minutes (but it didn't help me)

Prepare the pancakes: mix flour, baking powder, baking soda and apple into very small cubes. Separately mix egg, buttermilk, oil and applesauce. Combine the two mixture turning for a maximum of 15 seconds, without worrying if any lumps remain.
Cook spoonfuls of the mixture on a non-stick pan greased with a little seed oil.

Prepare the whole egg hollandaise sauce: put the egg in a bowl, and the bowl over a pot with very hot but not boiling water on the stove. Beat it with the electric whisk together with the water, for five minutes on the clock.
Aside, melt and cool the butter, which will be incorporated a spoon at a time, always beating with a whisk. The sauce will gradually take on consistency, thickening.
Almost at the end add the lemon juice and season with salt.

Prepare the smoothie: put the peeled and chopped orange in the glass of the blender together with the lemon juice and the peeled cucumber. Blend until you get a smooth and creamy consistency.

At the time of serving cook the poached egg, preparing a saucepan with 5 cm of water, a tablespoon of vinegar and a little salt. As soon as the water boils, lower the heat because it just quivers and gently pour in the whole egg. Cook for 3 minutes, then drain with a slotted spoon.
Divide the English muffin in half and toast it on a hot pan.
Place the drained egg on the toasted half of English muffin, cover with a little hollandaise sauce and place a slice of fake bacon browned in a pan. Combine the pancakes seasoning them with a little sour cream and maple syrup and serve with the smoothie.

- the English muffins can be frozen cooked.

- i panleftover cakes can be frozen, and warm up just before serving them perhaps in the toaster.

- the hollandaise sauce should be consumed immediately, or in any case within a short time from when it is prepared.

- the vegan tag refers to the drink only. The light plates tag refers only to pancakes, while the one without oven, without tools, without means to English muffins.

Uh I bought it too !! three year ago and I whipped it in the bedroom. I must say that as a coat stand it is a marvel !! -)
seriously i used it for a month, my husband used it too, then for a while enough, it did the function of the clothes hanger. Then this spring we were a little ashamed and now he dominates in the living room. There her destiny has improved a little because we use it every now and then, thanks to the television. But we are hopeless. I envy that he has constancy in these things. Then I complain about the extra pounds. But on Thursday the Latin dance course starts again. Also this year I manage to drag my husband too. of necessity or so or I go there alone and since the teacher is particularly nice. -)

hahaha .. hardly in my house the tools become hangers .. I usually consume them so much that my husband is thinking of advertising me to test some company before putting the product on the market :-P
Anyway the dance, as well as uniting the couple and rekindling the passion, burns a lot of calories .. so it is welcome :-D
Thanks Manu for your visit and see you soon & lt3
