It doesn’t matter if you’re just trying to start eating more healthy or you’re just wanting to remove soda drinks from your meals, drinking cleansing drinks can help your organism refresh.
The most important ingredient if you’re looking for detox drinks is watermelon. It’s the perfect ingredient in your arsenal because it contains a amino acid called citrulline that can your kidneys and liver. Also, an alternative to watermelon could easily be cucumber as this also contains the same substance(citrulline) but not in those quantities.
Let’s not forget the water, the good old H2O helps us flush the bad toxins form our body.
Lemon helps our body stimulate and it’s really helpful in case of constipation or even gas or heartburn. It allows our liver to work much faster and eases up the work it needs to do.
Last thing, and most important are mint leaves. These are not really that rich in nutrients but it can give your detox drink a nice flavor, and let’s be honest, who wouldn’t prefer a good drink rather than a bad one?
Now that we have all the ingredients all we need to do is to start slicing the watermelons, add the lemon, water and a few leaves of mint. Then we need to put this in the fridge or any other cold place and leave it overnight so all the good flavors can start flavoring the water.
You can always try substituting some of the ingredients and try out new combinations. For example you can change the lemon for a lime, or the cucumber for an apple. Or even switch them all with your favorite ingredients. Only thing you need to keep in mind is to add fresh fruits and try to add nutrient rich ingredients so that while you’ll be enjoying your drink your body will also benefit from it.
