What is a Detox?

By dictionary definition, Detox is the psychological or medicinal removal of toxic substances from the human body. Therefore, detoxes like this one helps your body to reset and get rid of toxins (which can be built up by many factors internally and externally) so that we can feel rejuvenated, improve our health, and help with weight loss.

What is A Mocktail?

So if you're sitting here thinking, what is a mocktail? Let me explain. A mocktail is like a party in a glass, minus the hangover. It's a delicious and refreshing drink that's packed with all the flavor and complexity of a traditional cocktail but without any of the alcohol.

Whether you're a designated driver, a health-conscious human, or just someone who wants to enjoy a delicious drink without the buzz, mocktails are the perfect solution.

Are Mocktails Healthy?

Mocktails can be healthy, depending on the ingredients used-- Fresh juices, herbal teas, and natural sweeteners like honey can provide vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. However, mocktails made with high-calorie syrups, sodas, and artificial flavors can be less healthy. Y'all know my mocktail menu for Orchirds & Sweet Tea I like to keep it natural and healthy. Even in this celery mocktail recipe, you'll enjoy the natural sweetener option.

Ingredients for Celery Pineapple Detox Mocktail

Here’s what you need for this detox, no-alcohol mocktail recipe:

  • Celery juice or actual Celery. For a nice refreshing green flavor and is a great source of antioxidants.
  • Lime juice. This perks up the richness of the other ingredients and adds a nice acidity.
  • Pineapple juice. Again, I like to purchase organic unsweetened pineapple juice.
  • Coconut water. I like the neutral taste of coconut water along with its aid in hydration.
  • Honey. You could also use Agave or maple syrup or omit the sweetener altogether.

How To Make Detox Pineapple Mocktail

BLEND THE INGREDIENTS:

  • In a high-speed blender, add together the chopped celery, lime juice, honey, and coconut water and blend until smooth and has a liquid-like consistency. Using a strainer, strain the liquid mixture into a bowl and discard any pulp.

ASSEMBLY:

  • For each drink, fill the glass with crushed ice, strained celery mixture and top with pineapple juice, sparkling water (if using), and lime wedges and fresh thyme sprigs, garnish, if desired.

Garnishes for Celery Pineapple Detox Mocktail

I’m all about big, edible garnishes in my mocktails. Here’s what I like to add to glasses for a fancier feel:

  • Fresh pineapple chunks. If you prefer a nice pronounced pineapple flavor, I would grill or char them.
  • Lime wedges. You can always slice the lime thin or into thick wedges for a fun look.
  • Fresh thyme sprigs. You could also use fresh parsley, mint or basil leaves for an added herby touch if preferred.
  • Celery stalks. If you prefer a nice look to your mocktails that show off the use of celery.
  • Edible flowers. Delicate edible flowers can bring a touch of elegance to your detox mocktail!

What Else Can I Add To This Detox Mocktail?

Although this mocktail is undoubtedly delicious as is, here are a few more ideas if you're looking to add an extra health boost:

Why Add Thyme? Is There a Benefit?

Although thyme is a common garden herb, many people don’t understand the overall health benefits of using it in recipes such as a drink like this one. Thyme runs in the mint family and acts as a great anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, and antioxidant agent.

Therefore, adding this herb to other beneficial ingredients will only create a greater powerhouse effect!

Why Use Celery as a Detox?

In case you weren't aware, celery has many health benefits that makes it a great option for detox drinks. Actually, it's super popular these days to make celery juice as a way to keep the body healthy and while it's always best to do things in moderation, I wanted to share some of the few ways celery can be beneficial to your health:

  • Works as a great antioxidant
  • Helps to prevent inflammation
  • May help to reduce blood pressure
  • May help to reduce "bad" cholesterol

Serving Size for Detox Mocktails

This recipe is designed to make two servings, but the beauty of it lies in its flexibility. Feel free to double or triple the ingredients to accommodate more servings or for convenient drink prepping that can last you through the next two to three days.
