Tasty Tuesday - A Fab Summer Drink!
This recipe is actually called a fat-flush drink; I'm not going to weigh in (pun intended) on the weight loss benefits of this particular drink. I will say that it's incredibly yummy on a hot, summer afternoon...and best enjoyed sitting on a deck and doing absolutely nothing. Other than maybe reading a book. So, without further ado: Fruity Water
Ingredients per 8 oz serving
1 slice grapefruit
½ cucumber, sliced
2 peppermint leaves
Ice – as much as you like
Wash grapefruit, tangerine cucumber and peppermint leaves. Slice cucumber, grapefruit and tangerine (or peel). Combine all ingredients (fruits, vegetables, 8 oz water, and ice) into a large pitcher.
Stir & Enjoy!
It's as simple as that. I love the fruity undertones of this drink, plus it's a way to get more water into your diet, especially when you feel overloaded with pain-water-boredom. Oh, and the longer it sits (although I never keep it more than 2 days) the better it tastes!
