How to Make Spa-like Detox Water

Our weekly Summer Water Series continues with Spa-like Cucumber Water; it’s light, mild and refreshing. This water is a “detox” water typically served at Spas.

All you need is a large pitcher of water, a whole sliced cucumber (not peeled), 2 slices of lemon and 4 sprigs of mint with crystallized or fresh ginger to taste. I just put a small amount of finely grated ginger. Ginger can be strong; add a small amount and add more if needed. So pamper yourself, sip this refreshing beverage and relax!

Consult a physician before indulging in continued, regular consumption of this water. It is an all natural detox water used in some cleansing and weight loss programs. We are not making any weight loss claims or dietary recommendations.
