When you drink as much water as I do (a gallon daily) you just get sick of it! So when that happens I change it up, I go to my Sodastream and make some fizzy water, or I make a Day Spa inspired water. I love Cucumber Lemon water and Lavender Mint, but today I wanted something sweet. Try your own with whatever you have in your fridge and comment below, share your creations with all of us.
This recipe calls for a 4 liter sun tea container. If you want to use a smaller pitcher cut the recipe in half, just divide by two. If you only want to make 1 liter divide recipe ingredients by 4.
Makes 4 liters, refill 4 liter pitcher 2-4 times until flavor is lost.
1 inch Ginger Root, peeled and sliced
1 cup Frozen Mango- fresh is fine too
-To peel the ginger use the back of a spoon or a vegetable peeler, just peel the part that you will be using. Using a sharp knife slice ginger into 3-4 coin sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of the coin.
-Drop into your pitcher and add in the mango.
-Top with 3 cups of ice and then add with water.(the ice is important, it holds down the ginger and mango to help infuse the water)
-Place in your fridge for 1-3 hours before serving.
-When serving add a couple frozen mango chunks in a pretty glass for ice cubes.
This will keep in the fridge for 24 hours.
Check out my favorite cookbook Pretty Delicious, this book taught me how to cook healthy and how to feed my body what it truly needs. My 150 lb weight loss would have never happened if I hadn’t picked up a copy of this book. The author is a model turned chef, turned Top Chef turned Iron Chef Judge, we are talking some fancy delicious food here!
HOW TO LOSE THE WEIGHT?
This is a Detox drink, NOT a Detox plan. The only detox that I recommend is lots and lots of water and lots and lots of veggies. That will clean you out, don’t starve yourself learn to Lose Weight BY Eating!
I always start people with these 4 goals, they are not rules just daily goals to try and meet:
1. Drink a gallon of water a day. (any of my 13 spa waters count)
2. Remove all processed foods and fake sugars from your diet.
3. Move your body more.
4. Count your calories. Take your goal weight and add a zero to the end, that is how many calories you should have each day.

I hope you enjoy this metabolism boosting drink, you may also like my Apple Cinnamon Water or my Mango Basil Water drinks. Here are more metabolism boosting meals, the new way to lose weight: make your food work for you!
You can use fresh or frozen mango, I like frozen because I don’t have to cut and it is always picked at the peak of the season and frozen so if I can’t get mangos in season I can still always have some in the house. Plus they are like little ice cubes here, fun! I highly recommend you use fresh ginger, the powdered just does not taste the same and will clump in your water. Check your farmer’s market or the produce section of your grocery store for ginger, you can store in freezer to make it last longer.
