Lemon and Cucumber Water

Ingredients

  • One medium size cucumber
  • 12 to 20 mint leaves
  • 2 to 3 Lemons

Directions

Before making this drink, clean all the ingredients by gently rubbing them under tap water.

Starting making the drink by peeling the cucumber’s skin thoroughly. Cut the cucumber into three big pieces and takeout all the seeds from them. When you are done, slice those three big pieces into much smaller pieces. If you slice them, they will easy dissolve in water, along with other ingredients.

Take mint leaves and cut them in half. Cutting will enhance flavor, and they’ll easily mix with other ingredients.

Slice lemons into thin pieces and set them aside.

Take a jug and add 2 quarter of water in it. Put the sliced cucumber in the jug and mix gently for a minute. If you want, you can leave the jug in a refrigerator for an hour. This process will dissolve cucumber supplements in water.

Add mint leaves, lemon slices, and mix for a minutes. Put ice cubes in this drink and serve as you want to.

There are some ingredients you can add in this drink. In the end if you don’t like the taste, you can add strawberries and pineapple to change the flavor. You can also use orange instead of lemon, but for better taste I personally recommend use of lemon. You have the option to add your favorite ingredients beside strawberries and pineapple.

Note: If you leave this drink for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator, this drink will have much better flavor as compare to drinking instantly. Leaving it will allow supplements to dissolve in water, which in return will give a much stronger taste.

When I feel like I have had too much artificial drinks and junk food in past weeks, I change my routine to cucumber water and similar drinks. I usually add healthy food in my diet, along with a little bit of exercise to live a healthy life.
