Fruity Summer Detox Drink

It’s been a long weekend of BBQs and parties and now it’s time for a fruity summer detox drink to kick your week off right. This lala original drink is easy as 1, 2, 3 and has amazing benefits. Check out the recipe below and the benefits of each ingredient. Kick back and enjoy this deliciously detoxing fruity summer drink!

1/2 Cup of Pineapples

One of pineapple’s greatest benefits is that it contains bromeliad, which aids digestion by breaking down protein. After a weekend full of cocktails and hamburgers, pineapples are the perfect ingredient to detox your system.

5 Strawberries

Besides the fact that strawberries are utterly delicious… Fresh berries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is a powerful natural antioxidant. Vitamin C is also a superstar ingredient for skin care, nail care, and general heath care.

4 Mint Leaves

Minty fresh! These little leaves have power moves when it comes to taste and detox benefits. With their strong antioxidants and ability to aid digestion, they are great in this yummy drink (they also make a pretty garnish).

8 oz. of White Peach Tea

Antioxidants are nutrients that protect the body from damage by free radicals. Free radicals are nasty things that go around wreaking havoc on your body, damaging DNA and accelerating aging. Antioxidants scoop them up and neutralize them. White tea is loaded with these protective nutrients. (Benefits of White Tea)

6 oz. of Ginger Ale

Considering ginger means “nutrition” and ale means “medicinal,” it’s a given why this is the perfect topper to this detox drink. Ginger Ale is an essential aid to clear out that system from the weekend and get it ready for a powerful week.

Add some ice, stir, detox, and ENJOY!
