DIY Cranberry Lemonade Detox Tea

by | Updated: January 9th, 2018

Forget about questionable boxed detox products from the drugstore. Allow real, nourishing foods to support your body’s own natural cleansing processes. (Plus, this tart tea is way more visually appealing than a packet of capsules made from who knows what!) A combination of pure cranberry juice and freshly squeezed lemon help naturally flush the body, while vitamins and antioxidants provide immune system support.

This tea, which can be served warm or chilled, truly gets two pinkies up!
