Adding fruits, veggies and fresh herbs to water is nothing new. There are all sorts of flavor recommendations (like these Herbal Tisanes) and beautiful pictures out there, but I’m offering this Strawberry Detox Water for a few reasons:

  1. Sustainability
  2. Brunch, Drinks & Desserts (the holy trinity!)
  3. Detoxification

First: Sustainability

Hulling strawberries is a must, but don’t be so quick to toss those strawberry tops. They still hold a lot of flavor. Unlike other water infusion recipes, this Strawberry Detox Water enables you to use the whole fruit. You’re not just sacrificing fruit to become all soggy and flavorless. Bonus points if you compost the tops after drinking the water too.

Second: Brunch, Drinks & Dessert!

Rather than sacrifice the whole fruit to the water, this method lets you eat the berries while still creating a Strawberry Detox water. Need some strawberry inspiration? Try any of these recipes:

Brunch: Strawberry & Pecan Buckwheat Pancakes 
Drinks: Strawberry Rhubarb Simple Syrup & Compote (perfect for brunch cocktails!)
Dessert: Gluten Free Strawberry Peach Crisp

Third: Detoxification

Eating strawberries may reduce the risk of chronic diseases like cancer and cardiovascular disease. Strawberries also provide vitamins A and C, which help to protect the skin and eliminate toxins in the body. Just remember to buy organic strawberries, since strawberries routinely make the “Dirty Dozen” list of fruits and vegetables that harbor pesticides.
