5. Strawberry Watermelon Flush Fat Detox
As delicious as this detox water sounds, it is! Although it absolutely takes a sliver of effort to process & complete. Watermelon takes the effect of filling you up & detoxing your kidneys while lemon juice works on detoxifying your liver. Strawberries are just the sweet bonus by helping out with Vitamin C. Juicing these items & adding to water will not only make a great amount to last a few days, but it’s also a bit of a break from the traditional infused waters.
