Make sure to REPIN the recipe
Boy it was a HOT week in Portland, OR — I think there was one day we were over 90! I know in my hometown ( Los Angeles) they have been going over 100 !!!
It is really important when it is hot like now to drink plenty of water
I grew up with a lemon and orange tree so I loved added these fruit to water to give it some “zip” — if you have never done it before it REALLY is life changing…. well maybe not life changing BUT it is pretty darn good 😉
I find that the balance in this water is perfect — I seriously felt my stress fall away 🙂
What the ingredients do for you 🙂
Lime ( Lime are natural energizers plus it kick starts that metabolism )
Cucumbers – Refreshing
Fresh Mint ( Helps your breath and helps you tummy work better)
Strawberries – Adds a wonderful flavor to the water
One question I get a lot when I post these water recipes is how often do I change out the ingredients – I find that this drink can be filled up about 3 times before I need to change out the ingredients – it really is the strawberries that cause the problem since they lose their color.
What I like best about the Stress Reducer Detox Water Recipe is that it is naturally sweet by the mint — I am a HUGE soda girl but I find that the mint quenches my sweet tooth 🙂
Also this drink is naturally gluten free

- 10 oz of cold water
- 1 strawberry sliced
- 2 mint leaves - diced

- Mix all the ingredients together in the glass
- I wait about 5 minutes before drinking - allows time for all the flavors to marry
