Looking for a natural, refreshing detox? Did you endure the 7 Day Cleanse I blogged about? In an effort to find a safe, natural detox, we tried out a popular Cucumber Lemon Detox on Pinterest. This is not a crazy crash diet, so make sure you eat normally 😉
The original recipe called for 2 lemons, half a cucumber, and 10 mint leaves in 3 quarts of water. We made each serving in a mason jar and let them infuse overnight.
For each serving you’ll need (per mason jar):
- 2 slices lemon
- 3 slices cucumber
- 2 mint leaves
Place them into the mason jar, fill up with water, seal, and let sit in your fridge at least 12 hours before drinking.
It was very refreshing. I felt really good drinking it regularly and it made me pee like a race horse (maybe that was the large consumption of water). But all in all, a delicious natural detox to try!
