Make your own Detox Water

1I recently found out about a tasty, refreshing and easy to do detox water and I’d love to share it with you. It is very, very easy to do and believe me, it tastes so good! First of all, you need a 8 oz pitcher or a simple bottle. I use two 4 oz glass jars. Then you need a tangerine, a cucumber and a lemon. Enough. Half cucumber/lemon/tangerine per 8oz. You can make 2 pitchers or bottles and save them for the next day, no problem at all (the more the fruits rest in the water, the better)

Di recente ho scoperto una bevanda disintossicante, depurativa, rinfrescante e facilissima da fare e mi piacerebbe condividerla con voi. E’ davvero molto, molto semplice da fare ed è buonissima, credetmi! Prima di tutto, avete bisogno di un contenitore (bottiglia, brocca) da circa 2, 2.3lt Io uso due contenitori di vetro da 1 lt. Poi vi servono un cetriolo, un limone e un mandarino. E basta. Mezzo cetriolo/limone/mandarino per 2 litri (2.30). Potete fare due brocche o bottiglie e conservarle in frigorifero per il giorno dopo, nessun problema (più i frutti restano in acqua, meglio è)! 2

Wash, peel (and wash again) half cucumber, half lemon and half tangerine and chop them.

Lavate, pelate (e rilavate) mezzo cetriolo, mezzo limone e mezzo mandarino e tagliateli a pezzetti.3

Put the small pieces into a bottle or glass jar or pitcher and add water (tap water is fine!)

Mettete i pezzettini in una bottiglia o caraffa e aggiungete acqua (quella del rubinetto va benissimo!)4Shake weel, add ice if you like it, and enjoy!

Agitate bene, aggiungete ghiaccio se vi piace e gustatevela!

I think this water is going to be my favourite drink the next summer…I’ll just add some mint leaves and ice cubes. Can’t wait for summer to come!

Penso che quest’acqua diventerà la mia bevanda preferita la prossima estate, aggiungerò solo qualche foglia di menta e cubetti di ghiaccio. Non vedo l’ora che arrivi l’estate!

Among cucumber properties: “clears the body of toxin, cleanses and purifies the blood. Very helpful in detoxing the body for any conditions of toxicity. Aids digestion.Calms the mind…lifts depression” read more here

Lemon properties: “cleans, nourishes, softens and refreshes the entire body, as well as possessing curative principles, being a staple of natural remedies and may consume as juice, teas, tonics and some therapeutic blends.” More here

Tangerine properties: “tangerine is rich in vitamin C, is also a powerful antioxidant, which helps in protecting and repairing the cells from damage caused by free radicals. The vitamin C in tangerine is also responsible for slowing down the aging process. It keeps the skin supple and healthy.” Read more about tangerine properties here (so many!!)
