This Cucumber Ginger Lemon Detox Juice is an incredible way to boost your immune system and reset everything in between daily consumption.
I love using natural remedies for my health and when it comes to keeping my body in tip top shape, I try to incorporate recipes like this one to best ensure that the body feels refreshed.
Well, the short answer is that each ingredient has a ton of health benefits, therefore, putting them together adds more power! I delve further into their individual benefits throughout this post, but that's really my main reason for adding them together for this 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.
Despite the misconception, there are many ways to detox your whole body which don't always require making your own recipe of drinks and teas.
When it comes to natural home remedies, we often think that taking little steps won’t eventually bring us to the major milestones that we hope for. However, truth is–every big milestone occurs after several mini steps. Therefore, 3 Detoxes That You Should Be Doing More Often discusses some of the mini steps that you can take to ensure that your goal to ‘complete wellness’ happens before the year ends.
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 run 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!

Before we dig into this recipe, did you know that Cucumber is an actual fruit and not vegetable? I know.
It's pretty crazy how we think of all fruit being sweet or at least a little sweet in the midst of any tartness. However, a cucumber just don't fit either category right? Is it just me? Haha.
But yes---cucumber is a fruit and it has some pretty awesome benefits as well:
And the list goes on.
Let's face it---cucumbers are more than just that one ingredient that you throw on top of a salad to add character! It's healthy stuff!

Cucumber Ginger Lemon Detox Juice.
LOVE THIS RECIPE?
LET US KNOW!
I must have used too muchmg ginger. I used 3 stalks. I can't drink sll this in 2 days. Is it ok to freeze some?
Hi Susan! So sorry to hear that---I'd recommend starting at about 1 ounce of ginger root and increasing depending on liking. Also, I'm not sure if it does well frozen, however, you can store it tightly sealed for 2-3 days. 🙂
Love this Cucumber Ginger Lemon Detox Juice, seems amazing . Thanks for sharing with us.
Love this Cucumber Ginger Lemon Detox Juice, this seems amazing and unique. Super excited to try this one, thanks for sharing this one with us.
Hi Yamini! Absolutely! I can't wait to hear what you think! 🙂
Hi! Is there a reason for boiling the ginger , mint and thyme leaves ? Isn’t it better to blend it fresh? Thank you!
Hi Juniette, It's definitely a preference! I like boiling them so that the steeped flavors are added to the drink as well as the leaves and ginger root gets softened. If you'd prefer to blend them without boiling, please feel free! 🙂
Thanks for sharing the valuable information, this will be very much helpful
Didn't have mint leaves, substituted it with mint sweets. So refreshing, thank you💃💃 can't wait to try one of your other recipes
Hi! I'm so happy to hear that you loved this recipe! It's definitely one of my go-to's! Thanks so much for choosing to try it! Always feel free to reach out if you have any questions about another recipe! 🙂
This has become a weekly staple now. The one small change I made was not adding agave. Thanks for responding with the clarification on the boiling process. 🙂
Hi Sheila! Absolutely! I'm so glad to hear that you've been loving this! It's definitely a great addition to any weekly routine! 🙂
“boil for 10-15 minutes before reducing the heat to the lowest setting and letting it simmer after the first 5 minutes”? To clarify - boil for 15 and then reduce and simmer for an additional 5 minutes?
Hi Sheila! So sorry for the confusion! You should boil it for the first 5 minutes and then reducing the heat so that it simmers for the remaining 10 minutes. Looking forward to hearing your thoughts on how everything turned out! 🙂
thank you and even it is attractive and easy to understand . Keep it up ..

I am into juice business. Is it possible to make the juice and store in refrigerator for a week? Thanks.
Hi! Personally, I never store it in the fridge for more than 2 days since everything tends to settle at the bottom after awhile due to the ingredients! Therefore, I recommend making batches every 2-3 days! 🙂
How often should you drink this?
There is no specific timeframe to drink this, however, I usually drink it in 3-4 day increments with rest periods. 🙂
Awesome post. Thanks for sharing this wonderful post with us!

Well isn’t this a refreshing drink?! I’m enjoying this after a hard workout. I love the bright flavors!
Hi Coby! I'm so happy that you're enjoying this recipe! It's definitely perfect for post-workouts or regular detoxing! 🙂
I have a problem i want to lose belly fat n a few KGS can you recommend a drink for me which can work faster.
Hi Maggie! Unfortunately, I don't specialize in weight loss! However, Detox drinks usually aide in that in some ways! 🙂
Love it’s freshness !
How many glasses can I drink in a day?
How long can I keep it in the fridge?
Hi Thanam! I'm so glad that you enjoy this recipe! It's definitely a staple! When storing, I'd recommend keeping it for 1-2 days for optimal freshness. Also, I would drink just 1 glass a day.
I made this refreshing drink so Devine I must say. I would like to know if there is a diet to go along with it or can I eat I normal no
Hi Lette! I'm so glad to hear that you enjoyed this one! It definitely is a fave in our house! I don't have a specific diet to go with this, however, I do have many Vegan options on our site! Of course, you can always eat normal, while keeping things healthier. 🙂
How long does this recipe keep for in the fridge?
I always suggest drinking it within a day or two! 🙂
Okay but how big is a medium ginger? It would have made way more sense to give ginger in inches.
Thanks so much for your feedback! It really depends on how much ginger flavor you'd like! A 1-inch piece of fresh ginger is the equivalent to 1 1/4 teaspoons of ground or 1 tablespoon crystallized ginger. Therefore, you can try using 3-4 inches of ginger to start and add additional depending on your taste. Hope this helps!
I make this juice every other week..love it!
This looks so delicious! Who knew cucumber has so many awesome benefits!?
I have to tell you I really enjoy visiting your blog, you have such an amazing combo of great recipes such as this detox drink, as I have grown a little older I have become more and more infatuated with delicious healthy recipes. I can't wait to try this. It looks so refreshing and healthy!
This sounds so incredibly delicious, and what a great way to use up a glut of cucumbers! I'll be trying this soon!
Love this cool and refreshing drink that is healthy to boot! Looking forward to enjoying this again this morning!
I love the flavors you have going on in this juice! I feel healthier just looking at it! So refreshing!
I love how refreshing this drink sounds! And I learned something today - I can't believe cucumber is a fruit! I've made smoothies with cucumbers as well as cocktails but I love the sound of the combination of ginger and lemon to flavor the cucumber. This will be high on my list to try for a healthy pick-me-up.
I love the flavors in this detox juice! Of all of the juices that I've tried, this one is by far my favorite!
I love cucumber juice in beverages -- and I've found that if you leave the skin on when you blend it -- it turns a remarkably SHAMROCK shade of green. Gorgeous! I would strain the pulp like you suggest to make it more liquidy.
This detox juice looks so refreshing and tasty. Love the combination with the ginger and the mint. Cannot wait to try this juice heading over to buy ingredients.
Yes, I really enjoyed it a lot! I'm definitely thinking about doing a whole week of it before the month ends! I do hope that you enjoy it as much as I did, Adriana! 🙂
Omg, this is delicious and so refreshing! yummm! I love ginger and cucumber! Thanks for the recipe.
Anytime, Mary! They really are perfect together! I hope that you enjoy!
I grow up drinking cucumber juice, so this detox juice is an exciting idea for me. Plus, you had me at "makes hair and nail stronger". I really need some help in that department right now. 😉
Yes, it's so crazy how many benefits Cucumber has, especially since it's one of the most overlooked fruits. I'm so with you on stronger hair and nails! Enjoy!
I've been looking for a healthy juice that I can really enjoy, and I've finally found it! This one is amazing!
Thanks so much, Tayler! Yes, I definitely believe that it should still taste great even when it's the most healthy! Haha! I do hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!
I love the addition to ginger to this. I can't wait to make this soon.
Yes, I love ginger too! Of course, you can adjust the amount based on your preferred spiciness! I do hope that you enjoy it as much as I did!
This juice is definitely going on my to make list. I love the combo of ginger and lemon and often make myself a hot drink with both plus honey. This is a great alternative for when the weather gets warmer, which I hope is soon!!!
Yes, the ingredients really work so well together and plus, they're super healthy! Be sure to let me know how it turns out, Jacqueline! 🙂
