Morning Detox Drink Recipes to Energize Your Day

Awesome collection of morning detox drinks!

So I love coffee. Really, I do – I promise. But I’ve found something lately that has kind of taken up the spot of Favorite Morning Drink.

It tastes nothing like coffee! It is warm, but not quite in the same way.

But after drinking this morning detox drink for the last few months, I have found it gives me energy and the ingredients help to naturally cleanse my body – and I am addicted. Probably not quite as much as coffee, my love for coffee is the stuff sonnets are made of. 😉 But it’s my new go-to drink. I save coffee for special occasions.


A look at the ingredients:

Raw, Unfiltered Apple Cider Vinegar

Naturally fermented, apple cider vinegar is full of enzymes and good bacteria; very cleansing to the body.

Lemon Juice

Naturally containing Vitamin C, lemon juice is alkaline forming and beneficial to the liver.

Blackstrap Molasses

Rich in iron, calcium, and magnesium, molasses is also very beneficial to hair! (woo!)

Raw Honey

Contains antioxidants, enzymes, vitamins and minerals. Blocks free radicals and is a good source of energy in the morning.

Lemon Essential Oil

Naturally cleanses the body and aids in digestion. Supports healthy respiratory function. Uplifting and energizing.

Protective Essential Oil Blend

Contains: wild orange, clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. Supports healthy immune function, and protects against environmental threats. Promotes healthy circulation; energizes and uplifts.

Cayenne Pepper

Increases metabolism and aids in dropping blood pressure.

So, if you’ve been looking for a morning drink to detox your body, look no further! I’ll share my custom recipe with you, and also share a handful of other awesome morning detox drink recipes for you to consider.

Here’s to detox!

My Morning Detox Drink


  • juice of 1 lemon (I use this to help get the most juice)
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons blackstrap molasses
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 drop lemon essential oil (optional, but great for detox, see notes)
  • 1 drop protective essential oil blend (optional, but great for immunity, see notes)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup warm filtered water – just add as much as you wish. I usually do about 6 oz myself.
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper

How to Make A Morning Detox Drink

  1. Warm your water on the stove, very briefly. You don’t want it to be hot, just warm.
  2. While your water is warming on the stove, add all the ingredients except for the cayenne pepper to a glass, and stir to mix well.
  3. Add warm water, and cayenne pepper. Stir, and drink slowly first thing in the morning.

Morning Detox Drink to Energize Your Day

  • Author: Love/Love Thing


This morning detox drink features apple cider vinegar, lemon, cayenne pepper and backstrap molasses. Perfect for invigorating and detoxing.


Units Scale
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons blackstrap molasses
  • 2 teaspoons raw honey
  • 1 drop lemon essential oil (optional)
  • 1 drop protective essential oil blend (optional)
  • 1/2 to 1 cup warm filtered water
  • 1 dash cayenne pepper


  1. Warm your water on the stove or kettle, to warm not hot.
  2. Add all the ingredients except for the cayenne pepper to a glass, and stir to mix well.
  3. Add warm water, and cayenne pepper.
  4. Stir, and drink slowly first thing in the morning.


  • I use a straw (like this) to drink this drink, because I don’t want the acidic ingredients to hit my teeth. A straw is perfect for bypassing them! (Even though the lemon juice and ACV are acidic, when they are consumed by your body, they leave an alkaline ash, and are very, very beneficial to your health, so don’t fear using them!)
  • Many times I end up heating my water too much – and adding a little cool water will easily make the right temp.
  • only recommend ingesting therapeutic grade essential oils. Click here to contact me for more information on these essential oils!
  • Only use apple cider vinegar that is raw, unfiltered, and contains the “mother”. If it is bright orange and clear, it will not have the health benefits you are looking for!
  • This drink has a strong taste – I love sour things so I don’t mind it at all. The sweetness of the molasses and honey definitely helps though.
  • The cayenne leaves a bite, so be sure to add it at the end!

  2. This is a great list! I’ve been getting back on the wagon with drinking charcoal lemonade and other detox drinks every morning. So refreshing and you really feel the difference all day!

  3. We do love the same drinks – coffee. I still love drinking it every morning to energize my body and every night to cease me from sleeping because of some things I need to finish. I think, you love that “morning detox” than coffee now which made me feel broken. Sorry, I do really love it. Anyways, I am going to try that Charcoal Lemonade. It’s quite interesting and I think I’ll find it desirable. Another reason why I want to try it because of the benefits that I could get out of that lemonade. Anyways, aside from drinking coffee, I love smoothies too with spirulina because it can detoxify our body naturally but I drink it very often because I’m too lazy to make it. However, I’ll find time to prepare this morning detox. Thanks!

    • Hi Nancy! So glad to find another coffee lover. 😀 Never mean to make you feel broken, trust me, I still love coffee. I’d love to know how the charcoal lemonade works for you! I might have to try it! <3

      • Hi Danielle! I would like to apologize if I acted so immature. Hope you understand my feels and it’s good thing that you still love coffee. Regarding the charcoal lemonade, I highly recommend this one. Honestly, I hesitated to take a sip but I did convince myself to do so and it’s all worth it. The taste and its benefits are great! Try it, Danielle.

  4. Great detox list Danielle! Also love the use of lemon in there it is simply one of the most incredible fruits ever in terms of its health benefits. We recently wrote an article on the benefits of lemon but an even more relevant one for a list of Fruit-Infused Water recipes,

    Watermelon and Mint is an infusion that helps the liver and kidneys get rid of ammonia in the body so another great detox drink.

    Keep up the good work we will be signing up to read your next articles! : )

  5. Thanks for the post. I am also coffee lover. I love to drink coffee. At the morning I need it too much. It is good for me. It is really good post. I enjoyed with this blog.

  6. The complete Book of essential oils and aromatherapy by Valerie Worwood states that Eucalyptus oil is extremely toxic if ingested. It can be deadly consumed in as small a quantity as a teaspoon. please reconsider the protective oil blend! I love all your other ideas. Thanks.

    • Hi Sarah, thanks for your comment! I’m very glad you brought up the eucalyptus, because a very important point needs to be made here. There are Eucalyptus Globulus and Eucalyptus Radiata, and the Eucalyptus in the protective blend is a very beneficial, save version called Eucalyptus Radiata. There is a big difference!

      I also want to articulate that, even with the safe version of Eucalyptus included in the protective blend, there would be less than one drop of it in the recipe. Eucalyptus is the next to last ingredient in the protective blend, so it is only a tiny amount, of a safe oil. I just want to be sure that I make it clear that nowhere am I suggesting ingesting anywhere close to a teaspoon of any oil! Thanks for your comment and for reminding me to clarify! <3
