This homemade flavored water is said to be good for hydrating and removing impurities from the body. Both lemons and cucumbers are diuretic so your body does not retain excessive water making you feel less bloated.
Cucumbers are also very high in fiber which again helps the flushing out process. The lemon-mint-cucumber combination cleanses, aids in digestion, and re-hydrates.
- 1 cucumber
- 1 lemon
- 1 handful of mint leaves (10-12 leaves)
- 1-2 liters of water (depending how strong you want it)
Slice the lemon and cucumber. Toss in jug or pitcher. Add 10-12 mint leaves. Pour in 1-2 liters of cool water. Let sit overnight in the refrigerator – this allows the flavors to develop. When ready to drink, pour over a glass of ice cubes. Enjoy!
