I love a healthy lifestyle but I also want it to be fun and engaging. That’s why the new love of my life is slim down detox water. The merge of the flavours from the fruits and mint make it so easy to love. I will be drinking this for a very long time!

To make this, here is what you need:

Half a cucumber
3 fresh mint leaves
1 lime
1 lemon
Half a grapefruit
A pitcher of water

Slice everything except the mint leaves.

Put all ingredients  into your jar of water and let them soak overnight or for 12 hours. Thereafter, drink and refill as needed.

This drink contains cucumber, which is a diuretic and helps your body release water. It means it has anti-inflammatory properties. Cucumber has been known to fight a wide range of cancer.

The lemon and lime flush toxins from your digestive tract and aid in digestion.

The grapefruit is high in enzymes that help you burn fat. Thank God, my 4 month unwanted fat pregnancy will soon be gone.

The mint adds a refreshing taste – a touch of sweetness without the sugar.

Like I said, I will be drinking this for a really long time! Have you tried detox water before?pre-signature-pro

  18. How long before you have to change the fruit?

  19. Hello, i like your blog andi have tried one thing already- The peanut burger and i was so happy i got it.
    About the detox water, how long before we change the fruits to fresh ones that is how often should the fruits be changed? Also, grapefruit is scarce here, can there be a replacement or one can leave it out.Thanks.

  20. Very helpful. Will try it out.
