    Whether you’re just trying to steer clear of the sugary drinks, or aim to really help your body flush out any toxins lurking in your system, this refreshing blend of foods and flavors will satisfy your tastebuds needs.

    Ingredients : Watermelon/cucumber, lemon/lime, mint leaves, and water.
  • Why lemon (or lime): Lemon or lime juice helps stimulate and regulate the digestive track (which is why it’s so helpful with constipation, heartburn and gas), stimulates bile production, and thins out bile, which allows it to flow more freely.

  • Why mint leaves: Mint leaves are a nice refreshing flavor to add to your drink. On top of that, it can help you digest more effectively, improving the flow of bile from the liver, to the gallbladder, to the small intestine, where it breaks down dietary fats.

  • Why Watermelon (or cucumber): Watermelon and cucumber helps the body flush out toxins because it contains the organic compound citrulline, which is an amino acid that has been shown to help the liver and kidneys filter and get rid of ammonia.

  • You will need…

    -1-2 liters’ of water, depending on how strong you want it to taste
    -Part of 1 watermelon or 1 cucumber
    -1 lemon or lime
    -A handful of fresh mint leaves (approximately 10-13)
    -Ice cubes

  • Slice up watermelon into cubes and put them into a jug. Cut 1 juicy lime into wedges and toss in with the watermelon. Add a handful of mint leaves and pour in 2 liters of cool water, filling the jug all the way to the top. Let this sit overnight and drink with ice everyday to feel the difference!
