Cucumber Mint Detox Water

Cucumber Mint Detox Water

So I’m kind of having a detox moment with cucumber mint water.

Just imagine a giant glass pitcher filled up with ice cold water wherein super thin slices of cucumber float . That, my friends, is basically an open invitation for any and all of your fresh summer herbs. Today I am opening the detox-water-season with freshly picked mint leaves from my little herb garden on the balcony.

Instructions

  1. Wash the cucumber and peel off the skin, if desired. Slice it thinly and add it to a pitcher.

Note

The same cucumber slices and mint leaves can be used for a second batch of detox water.

Carefully wash the fresh mint leaves. If you prefer stronger mint flavor, you can slice the leaves into ribbons or leave them whole for better look.

Combine the fresh mint with thinly sliced cucumber and ice cubes, add water and there you have it - your cucumber mint detox water!
