There are few things more refreshing on a hot day than cucumbers and melon. Our Cucumber Melon Detox Drink combine these flavors along with lime and mint into a light infused water. There are so many health benefits in this drink! It flushes out toxins from our bodies, stimulates digestion, breaks down fat, and hydrates body cells.
It’s great to take with you in a sports bottle when out and about at the pool or beach, or simply to have in a pitcher in the fridge to sip on all day. You can even take it up a notch by topping it off with sparkling water.
