Electrolyte - Detox
Drink

Gluten-free, Vegan

This is my basic recipe but there are alterations that can be made for different benefits.
Staying hydrated is so important for so many reasons and yet we are often dehydrated without even realizing it.

Electrolytes play a big role in hydration, so adding some lemon and a pinch of salt to your water bottle

can make all the difference! 

This quick and easy recipe will give you some variety in your beverage options.

(And it's super yummy!)

You can make this in the evening so that it can infuse overnight, waking up to an amazing beverage! 

Prep Time: 5 minutes

Wait Time: 8 hours

INGREDIENTS
1L jar or pitcher 
10-15 slices of cucumber 
12-20 mint leaves (if you love mint go for it!) 
1 medium lemon  
Pinch of Salt 

DIRECTIONS
*Wash everything before preparing*


-Cut the lemon in half, juicing one half and slicing the other half. Pour juice and place slices into the vessel of your choice!
-Depending on if you have a thick field cucumber or a thinner English cucumber, you will need 10 or 15 slices. 
-Place mint leaves into the vessel 
-Fill with water, with enough space at the top to be able to stir
-Add pinch of salt and stir
-Let cool in the fridge for 8 hours to allow for maximum vitamin and mineral infusion

BENEFITS
Lemons contain potassium, sodium, magnesium, and calcium which are all important electrolytes that help your body absorb fluids better.
This also provides antioxidants! 

Bonus Tip: you can peel and slice up some ginger to add in a bit of a spicier flavor and digestive benefits! 

 


Whenever possible try to choose organic ingredients, and always wash well. The slight fermentation will help eat away at some of the pesticides if you cannot purchase organic items, but there will still be residues.
