Spa Detox Water – Simple, healthy, and delicious spa detox water recipe prepared with citrus fruits, mint, and cucumbers.
Anyone else in need of a good cleanse after all those cookies and numerous Christmas treats? Hallelujah and Amen! I completely understand you, friends. I am stuffed and am more than ready to jump all over this Spa Detox Water.
For real though, if you just need a heavy dose of fruits to cancel out all the cookies you ate yesterday (I wish that’s how it worked…), this detox water recipe is pretty much the only thing you will need to get you through today, and every day.
This Spa Detox Water is something that I tried when I started going to a local spa. Every time I go in, they greet me with this wonderfully fresh fruit water filled with citrus, mint, and cucumbers. The first time I tried it, I only did it because it was SO pretty. How vain. I know. BUT it was gorgeous and I couldn’t say no. I’m glad I didn’t.
Ingredients For Detox Water:
- Grapefruit: I eat a grapefruit almost every morning. Thanks to the fruit’s fat-burning properties and its beneficial effect on blood sugar levels, grapefruit is also hydrating and packed with immunity boosting antioxidants.
- Tangerines, or mandarin oranges, are a refreshing citrus fruit packed with nutrients, including flavonoids, vitamin C, vitamin A, folate and potassium.
- Cucumbers flush out toxins, they keep you hydrated, and are great for your skin. To add, cucumbers are packed with vitamin A, C, and K.
- Mint promotes digestion. According to a study at the University of Maryland Medical Center, mint can help keep bloating and other stomach problems at bay while you’re trying to lose weight.
- WATER! The benefits are very many, but to name a few; water increases energy, promotes weight loss, flushes out toxins, keeps constipation at bay, boosts your immune system, etc…
If the above mentioned isn’t enough to make you want to pick up that pitcher and jug it all down right this minute, I don’t know what will!
Adding fresh fruits and herbs adds minerals and vitamins to water and increases its nutritional benefits.

I have been making these infused waters for year now and I can’t imagine my day without drinking it.
Does this send you too bathroom
Just made a batch yesterday. This is very refreshing and looks so pretty. Brightens a winter day for sure.
I don’t like mint. What do I do about that
I would still give it a try because mint helps with bloating and indigestion, but if you absolutely can’t stand it, you can try it with parsley.
How long is the water good for once it’s been made?
I refill it at least 3 times, and have found that the water is good even if you’ve refilled for 2 to 3 days.
Do you keep adding water to the fruit/veg as you drink it or are you to throw out all fruit/beg once water is gone?
Yes, I have found that the water is good even if you’ve refilled for 2 to 3 days.
You’re right this is beautiful!
Is the prepared water to sit at room temperature or refrigerated overnight? this water sound delicious.
Hi! I prefer it cold so mine is always in the fridge, but it’s also okay if you let it sit in room temperature.
What can I do , if I am not allowed grapefruits, because of meds I am taking ? I would love to try this Water!
Hi! Any other citrus fruits would be OK. I’d try replacing the grapefruit with lemons and oranges. Lemons are great for digestion, hydration, and are good for colon health.
