Now and then we all go to the bar or some party and have a couple of beers or glasses of wine.
That is perfectly fine but I bet when you wake up tomorrow morning you organism craves something light and refreshing like it's saying “Please help me, I can't clean this on my own! We need to have some fat burning detox drinks, instead of caffeine and alcoholic drinks!“, right? Well, fear not my dear body, because today we're making these not just refreshing, but also fat burning detox drinks to clean you!
There is a lot of fat burning detox drinks that you should drink every day.
In order to figure out what do you actually need for detoxing, you have to make sure that you are familiar with the things that are not that good for you, and your body doesn't actually like.
How am I harming my body and not being aware of that?
Let's hold the horses for a second and review some things that you will do to your body and organism this summer without knowing how big an impact it is for them:
You will maybe travel. Maybe you didn't know this but traveling into different time zones, areas with different weather, long distanced placed, is not really something your body is thankful for. Sure, you will see beautiful things, be stunned by many situations you never experienced before, but that doesn't mean your body will be happy too. The worst thing is if you go to Asia. Asian people, don't get me wrong, I really like you guys, but Asian culture is not from this world! In 90% of cases, you will eat something you never ate before, and there is a good chance that your western stomach won't find it easy to digest! Take some probiotics with you and enjoy their amazing culture!
You will maybe party. This is one of the core reasons why you need a detox. Alcohol is actually very healthy, but only if we consume it in normal quantities. For example, beer decreases the chance of heart disease and it strengthens your bones… But only if you drink 1 glass every other day!
You will be exposed to high temperatures. And that can lead to dehydration. Losing water from your body is a serious thing, and you should always carry a bottle of water to stay hydrated.
You will spend time in the places with AC on. After you transition to somewhere where there is no AC (like outside), you can suffer a heat stroke. And even if you don't experience that, be sure that your body is aching and you can feel nausea.
Don't let these be something you don't care about. Where I come from there is a saying, that your body will charge you every mistake when you get old.
Relax with your friends, but make sure that day after you clean up the mess made a previous night.
What are the best fat burning detox drinks?
We will cover 5 best fat burning detox drinks here and we are starting with:
Even though you probably rolled your eyes, it's true!
Every detoxication starts with water.
Water is a resolution to many problems like a hangover, migraine, nausea, heartburn, it flushes all the carbs and preventing fat gain, etc. It may sound silly, I know, but you would be amazed by the fact how many Americans don't drink enough water.
– Pour water into the cup. Done.
But since this one was an obvious one, and you probably know how much water is important, let's proceed…
2. Apple cider vinegar + lemon + honey + warm water
This is actually the drink we talked more about in the breaking the plateaus quickly article.
Organic apple cider vinegar is one of the healthiest beverages on planet Earth. There is no day that I don't drink this magic potion. It's super healthy, and here are some benefits:
- It kills pathogens, including bacteria
- Reduces the risk of cancer. In fact, some studies have shown that vinegar can kill cancer cells and shrink tumors. Admit it, that's basically like the superpower!
- Prevents your body from being too alkaline. If your body is too alkaline, protein absorption will be reduced and your body will not process all essential minerals as it supposes to.
- Vitamin C from lemon boosts your immune system.
There are numerous benefits of this beautiful, awesome tasting potion, and it's a great solution for detoxing your body and getting it back to function normally.
For this recipe, I'd recommend getting 100% raw, organic, and unfiltered apple cider vinegar – Bragg

It's USDA certified and truly the best apple cider vinegar on the market.
Of course, you should watch out for the honey part. Don't try to save money buying some cheap honey that is full of refined sugar. Actually, don't look at the money when you seek healthy food. Honey is one of the healthiest things on this planet and you would be surprised how bees actually make it, so spend a few bucks more and get the raw, organic honey.
A thing that probably caught your eye is the WARM water.
If you tell a Chinese human that you are sick, before Aspirin on Ibuprofen they will give you a cup of warm water. Per their belief, warm water is the cure for all diseases and they drink it even during summer. Cold water is strongly avoided in Chinese culture because they believe it's a huge stress for your body.
If you think logically, that makes sense. The average temperature of the human body is about 97.7 – 99.5 °F according to Wikipedia. What makes more sense: Drinking water of 50°F or 75°F? Studies have shown that room temperature water helps in detox, pain relief, and food break down. That's also why tea is very popular in China.
- 1/2 cup of warm water
- 1 tbsp of honey
- 1 tbsp of organic apple cider vinegar
- 1/2 lemon – squeezed juice
3. Grapefruit and Cinnamon
If you are into sour and bitter drinks this is a great option! I personally am not a fan of cinnamon, but grapefruit has an excellent wake-up taste. When you drink it or eat it, all your facial muscles will flex and you will probably shake your head a couple of times!
I saw some people find this drink useful in the battle with hangovers. Probably because of the taste, but this drink has some great pros and will help you clean your body the best way possible:
- It contains a high amount of vitamin C.
- Blood pressure is more stable
- Prevents heart disease
- Full of antioxidants
- Has anti-inflammatory superpowers!
- Burns fat like crazy
It would be probably the best thing to drink after you wake up, right before breakfast. After sleeping (for 7-8 hours, or more if you are sleepyhead) your body is dehydrated and insulin level is very low. It's a great thing to wake it up with some strong taste, fructose from grapefruit and antioxidants from cinnamon.
- (Warm) Cup of water
- 1 whole grapefruit squeezed into juice
- 1 tsp of cinnamon
Pro tip: Cinnamon is hydrophobic so prepare yourself for the battle by trying to unite it with water!
4. Blueberry + Orange + Mint + Apple
If grapefruit and cinnamon are too strong for you, this is a milder option.
Most people don't like to mix many things in one but this potion has a great flavor and if you add some protein powder to it, it can be a great snack! Thanks to this combo your body will experience a real vitamin bomb. Let's look at some statistics here:
- Mint was originally taken as a medicinal herb to treat stomach ache and chest pains. It also helps with indigestion, so if need to calm your stomach down after a rough night, this drink is great because of mint
- A high concentration of vitamin C because of blueberry and orange. Orange gives it a full taste, while blueberry gives it a bittersweet flavor.
- Apple is the key to starting a thermogenesis process. It's the process where your body turns fat into energy, and that's the last piece of the puzzle you need in this drink.
- A full hand of blueberries
- 2 oranges
- few leaves of mint
- 1 apple
Put it all together in a blender and enjoy the taste! As we said previously you can add protein powder to have a great snack!
5. The Bloody Mary
Noooow we're talking, right?!
Invented in 1892 as an Oyster Cocktail, Bloody Mary has a huge history that was turned into a standard over the years.
Because of the ingredients, there is a lot of health benefits from this unique cocktail. Horseradish inside is the main detox ace this beautiful motion-potion has but that's not all:
- Tomatoes inside have the antioxidant lycopene, which plays a huge role in lowering the risk of diseases
- Horseradish doesn't tolerate any bacteria and dead cells inside your body
- A high concentration of fibers inside help your digestive tract to work like a charm
- Even though the medicine industry still doesn't know the actual reason why hangover happens, Bloody Mary is known to be an excellent cure for hangovers!
- A shot of vodka doesn't actually have any benefits for you, but you won't die promise!
- 1/4 cup (2-oz) tomato juice
- shot of vodka
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 3/4 tsp freshly grated horseradish
- 3 dashes hot pepper sauce, such as Tabasco
- 1 pinch of (Himalayan) salt
- 1 dash freshly ground black pepper
- About 1 cup ice cubes
- 1/4 tsp fresh lemon juice
- 1 stalk celery
- 1 lemon wedge (optional)
In an 11-oz highball glass, stir together tomato juice, vodka, Worcestershire sauce, horseradish, hot sauce, salt, and pepper. Fill glass with ice, then pour the mixture into the second glass. Pour back and forth 3 to 4 times to mix well, then sprinkle lemon juice over. Garnish with a celery stalk and lemon wedge (if using) and voila.
Bonus: Masters Flush
Behold the king!
I'll give you one of my own personal detox drinks which burns fat like crazy and flushes all the junk you have in your gut! To be honest, it's not delicious like orange juice or lemonade, but there's a reason it's called Masters Flush.
Did you know that you currently have food in your small intestine and colon that you ate like 7 days ago? And that food is rotting inside you? Yeah, it's pretty disgusting to think about that, but it's a fact, and it's because we don't have a proper fiber intake.
Because we don't flush these things out, we have a higher risk of getting colon cancer, which can end up with a surgical procedure of removing a bigger part of the colon… Which means you will have to live with a bag attached to your stomach for the rest of your life.
When you think about it, it's easier to drink this bad boy and get over it, instead of getting one of the world's notorious diseases.
Okay, this is the recipe:
This is gold, trust me. And you can thank me simply by sharing this on your Facebook or pinning it on your Pinterest!
You will get used to the taste and your body will be thankful.
It has a high amount of fiber which flushes all bad things from your body, it burns fat, controls your blood pressure, and lowers the risk of getting colon cancer and type 2 diabetes!
That's it, folks!
Share in comments your favorite fat burning detox drink, I'd love to try some new things out!
