Cucumber Mint Water

DSC_1231 I think most of our bodies could use some detoxing after all of spring break’s festivities. The fun hasn’t ended yet, but I, for one, am going to get a head start with this great flavored water recipe. Cucumbers are full of water and vitamins, which help to hydrate your body and flush out toxins. One of mint’s many benefits is that it decreases inflammation. Put together, mint and cucumber make an extremely refreshing and cleansing drink.

Ingredients

Makes one large pitcher

  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 bunches of mint (Get this at the microfarm)

How to

Thinly slice the cucumber and massage the mint to release its oils. Place at the bottom of a large pitcher and cover with ice and water. Gently stir and allow to sit for 5-10 minutes so the flavors can mingle. Pour and enjoy!

  • Pro-tip: If you aren’t a huge fan of mint, use 1 bunch instead of two.
