    Cucumber Lemon Detox Water

    This sassy water recipe contains cucumbers. Icing on the cake! Ain’t it? Cucumbers are one of the most hydrating vegetables because they are mostly made up of water. And, it is for this very reason why almost all detox programs include cucumbers in them. When this storehouse of health is mixed in water, it pulls out the minerals thus giving you an added advantage. And, guess what? This is not it! When you add lemon juice to it, you are getting the cleansing effect of citric acid and thus cleaning out the digestive system. Besides giving a hint of freshness to your drink, mint goes absolutely nicely with lemon and cucumber while providing additional nutrients and benefits.
