Happy Thursday Friends!
Today I am sharing a refreshing drink that helps detox your system. Not only is it really tasty, it’s good for you too! Awesome, I know :) Do you remember my first Healthy Tips post when I shared the benefits of drinking water? In that post, I gave some ideas for making water more fun to drink by adding fruit, herbs, or sugar free drink mixes. So, I decided to take my own advice and actually make a detox water to share with you.
Ingredients you’ll need to make this rejuvenating detox drink:
- ice water
Make sure you use ice water! Not only is it a more refreshing taste, cold water helps speed up your metabolism. Simply add the watermelon, lemon, and a few mint leaves to the ice water. Let it sit for 20-30 minutes and then drink.
Doesn’t this look like the perfect drink to have handy all summer? If you prefer other fruit, try it and see what you like best! Strawberries, oranges, and limes are all good in water too. I kept adding more ice water to this same pitcher for a couple of days and then just started over with fresh fruit and mint. I know that I will be carrying around this water on every hot day!
Do you have any special waters that you have created or that are your favorite? I would love to hear your ideas!
Keep Calm and Cook On,
