This pretty drink is perfect for enjoying first thing in the morning. Many people begin their day with a glass of lemon water because it flushes out toxins and gets the system revved up. It is a good idea to make this the first thing you consume in the morning. Healthy drinks come in all shapes and sizes, but this one is especially detoxifying. Lemon and mint water is fresh and invigorating. It jump-starts the metabolism and helps you awaken after a night of sleep. It also gets you hydrated first thing in the morning, after several hours without water.
In addition to drinking this lemon mint concoction first thing in the morning, you can sip it throughout the day. It’s the perfect alternative for those who struggle to drink enough water because they do not care for the taste. It has a sweet and tart taste from the mint and lemon, making it far more palatable than plain water for many. Even if you enjoy the regular taste of water, this mix is a great way to mix things up and enjoy a treat. Instead of high-calorie juices and sodas, you can enjoy this drink. Not only do you avoid the bad ingredients, you add a few extra healthy ingredients to your day.
If you are looking for a great kick-off to your morning, a substitute for your morning coffee, or a way to encourage water sipping all day, this lemon mint water is sure to do the trick.
- 8 ounces of water, distilled, spring, or purified (room temperature)
- Juice of 1/2 lemon
