Discover how to marry spring water, fruit, vegetables, herbs and spices to create delicious, detoxifying flavoured waters that are packed with health-enhancing vitamins and antioxidants to purify, fight against bloating and aid weight loss with Detox Waters. Increase your daily water intake the easy way with appetising detox waters. We are all aware of the benefits of keeping hydrated – from flushing out toxins to burning fat when exercising – but the reason why many of us fail to drink enough water each day is simply boredom. Now these delicious recipes – including Summer Peach, Courgette and Thyme, Rosemary and Lemon and -Carrot Cake' drink – put the taste back into detoxing.
The recipes for the detoxifying drinks are divided into two chapters – Spring and Summer, and Autumn and Winter – so this cookbook has a drink to purify you any time of year. During the warmer months, make infusions rich with vitamin C from red fruits and berries accompanied by herbs, including Watermelon Water with Mint or Floral Water with Cherries and Rose Petals. Then as the weather becomes colder turn to dried fruits and spices to create infusions such as Coffee Water with Raisins and Cinnamon or Rooibos Infusion with Dried Apricots and Tonka Beans.
The final chapter in the book gives more than ten recipes and ideas for utilising the leftover residues from the detox waters, so rather than waste these precious antioxidant-rich ingredients they can be transformed into delicious smoothies, chutneys and even pancakes.
