Here’s my collection of the best metabolism boosting drinks for weight loss. In this post are natural weight loss boosters that are inexpensive, easy to make, taste delicious, and give your weight loss an extra boost!

Did you know high quantities of water help to increase your metabolism? (1)

This article is dedicated to taking the metabolism boosting properties of water to the next step, by adding fruits and herbs that are known to boost metabolism and increase energy.

I included Apple Cinnamon Water and Mango Ginger Water, as they are my most popular drinks to boost metabolism. Millions of people all over the world have tried and loved these recipes.

I also added several new recipes and even a couple detox teas. Sip these metabolism boosting drinks all day, and before you know it, the pounds will be melting away!

For these teas, you have a few choices: A mulling spice holder, reusable tea bags or you can just boil the herbs. I prefer tea bags because cleaning my teapot is just too much work for me.

#1. Apple Cinnamon Water

Metabolism Boosting Apple Cinnamon Water

Did you know both apples and cinnamon raise your metabolism? Try this now famous drink and any day can feel like fall (2).

Fuji and Honeycrisp apples work best as they are the sweetest. Keep in mind that this metabolism boosting drink has just a hint of flavor. Should you want it stronger, add more apples or slice them thinner.

Makes 2 liters

  • 1 apple, thinly sliced
  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 2 cups ice
  • Water

Drop apple slices in the bottom of the pitcher (save a few for your glass later). Add the cinnamon stick. Cover with ice and top with water. Place in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

Once the water is down to 1/4 full, refill with water. You can do this several times to keep the flavor. Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

#2. Mango Ginger Water

Metabolism Boosting Mango Ginger

Aside from it’s natural metabolism boost, ginger acts as a natural pain reliever. Whether you’re up against migraines or menstrual cramps, it’s amazing what ginger can do (3).

Ginger also aids in reducing morning sickness, nausea and heartburn and will give your digestive system, memory and sex drive a welcome boost.

This one little drink will do a lot for your body, so make a big pitcher today and enjoy.

I highly recommend you use fresh ginger. The powdered stuff just does not taste the same and will clump in your water. Check your farmer’s market or the produce section of your grocery store for ginger. You can store it in freezer to ensure it lasts longer.

Makes 2 liters

  • ½ inch ginger root
  • ½ cup frozen or fresh mango
  • 2 cups ice
  • Water

To peel the ginger, use the back of a spoon or a veggie peeler. Only peel the portion that you’ll be using, not the whole thing. Using a sharp knife, slice 4 or 5 quarter sized slices. You want them about the size and thickness of a coin. Drop into your pitcher and add the mango.

Top with ice, then cover with water. Place in your fridge for 1 hour before serving. In the meantime, chop up a few fresh mango chunks and toss in the freezer. When ready to drink, drop the icy mango pieces into a pretty glass to keep your drink cool.

Once the water is down to only 1/4 full in the pitcher, refill with water. You can do this several times to keep the flavor. Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

#3. Berry Blast Metabolism Boost Drink

Berry Blast Metabolism BoosterThis is one of my most handy metabolism boosting drinks.

Pick up a bag of frozen berry medley at your local grocery store and you’ll have all three berries ready at a moment’s notice.

Just a handful creates a fat burning drink!

Add some delicious citrus — like lime or orange slices — and you will have added a healthy dose of vitamin C to the mix.

Makes 2 liters

  • 1/2 cup of berries: raspberries, blueberries, blackberries, strawberries
  • 1 lime, quartered
  • 1 orange, sliced into eighths
  • 2 cups ice
  • Water
  • 1 tray of Berry Medley and Lemon Ice Cubes

In a large pitcher, add the lime and orange slices while gently squeezing a little juice out of them. Then, add in the berries. You can choose your favorite mixture here and get creative!

Top with ice and then water. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

Once the water is down to 1/4 full in the pitcher, refill with water. You can do this several times to keep the flavor. Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

#4. Apple Blueberry Cinnamon

Metabolism Boosting Apple Blueberry

My very dear friend Kate makes the best apple pie in the world, often adding blueberries as an all-natural sweetener.

According to Kate, the blueberries add so much sweet flavor, she doesn’t need to add as much sugar to the mix.

Because the apples and blueberries are a match made in heaven, I decided I needed a taste of this delicious combo whenever I wanted. In turn, I created this fat burning, metabolism booster drink.

Blueberries have one of the highest antioxidant capacities of all fruits. The plant compound flavonoid appears to be the source of the majority of the antioxidants (4).

I like to use frozen blueberries for this metabolism boosting drink recipe. I grab them out of the freezer and heat them up in the microwave to better release their juice. I prefer Fuji or Honeycrisp for most of my recipes, they are the sweetest.

Makes 1 Pitcher

  • 1 apple, thinly sliced into rings
  • 1/4 cup blueberries
  • 2 cinnamon sticks
  • 2 cups ice
  • Water

If your blueberries are frozen, heat them up in the microwave for 10-25 seconds to better release their juices. If the blueberries are fresh, crush them at the bottom of the pitcher with a fork or muddler.

Add the apples and the cinnamon stick, then top with ice and water. Let the mixture sit in the fridge for 1 hour before serving.

Once the water is down to 1/4 full in the pitcher, refill with water. You can do this several times to keep the flavor. Store in the fridge for up to 24 hours.

#5. Hot Apple Cinnamon Tea

Metabolism Boosting Apple Cinnamon TeaOne of my most famous drinks is my Apple Cinnamon water. During the winter, I like to make it as a hot tea. The flavor is stronger and oh so yummy!

Apples are an excellent source of vitamin C (5).

They also contain a plant compound called polyphenol, which can have many health benefits including lowering blood pressure and stroke risk (6).

Makes 1 teapot

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 apple, thinly sliced

Cup method: Add all ingredients to cup and top with hot water.

Teapot method: Add all ingredients to a teapot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and serve.

Add the cinnamon and apple to your teapot or cup.

Keep refilling when the mixture is halfway consumed. The flavor will stay strong for up to 8 cups!

#6. Gingerbread Tea

Metabolism Boosting Tea

This easy, three ingredient tea will boost your metabolism, calm an upset tummy and freshen your breath.

It’s perfect on a cold winter day in place of coffee in the morning or during your 4 p.m. coffee break.

If you want to take this with you to work, just fill your travel coffee mug with the ingredients minus the water. When your coworkers go out for coffee just ask for some hot water and fill ’er up.

Makes 1 teapot

  • 1 cinnamon stick
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, thinly sliced into coins
  • 1 inch piece of vanilla bean
  • 1 lemon, sliced into rings (optional)

Cup method: Slice vanilla bean lengthwise, leaving the seeds. Add all ingredients to the cup and top with hot water.

Teapot method: Slice vanilla bean lengthwise, leaving the seeds. Add all ingredients to a teapot and cover with water. Bring to a boil and serve with lemon.

This recipe is as easy as making tea. The ginger, vanilla and cinnamon will float to the bottom of your cup. You can continue to refill your cup when the mixture is halfway consumed.

The flavor will stay strong for up to 8 cups!
