step 1

To make this detox lemon water, start by preparing the lemon and ginger infusion.

Peel the zest of the lemons, using about half of those needed for the juice.

Peel and chop fresh ginger root and add it to a pan of spring water with the lemon zest.

Bring to the boil, reduce the heat and simmer for 5 minutes. 

Then allow cooling down for 5 minutes or until the infusion is lukewarm. This way, both the lemon and ginger will release their beneficial chemicals.

Strain the lemon and ginger pieces from the water.
