One of the best things you can do for your body is give your digestive system a little break with detox drinks. Detoxing helps give your body the nutrients it needs and aids in digestion so you can see why it’s ideal to include in your diet.

Since summer time is right around the corner we figured we’d share this Super Hydration Recipe we came across. Although we hate to admit it, many of us aren’t drinking enough water to remain hydrated. Then when you toss in dehydrating beverages like soda and coffee things can get ugly. So we’re going to keep our bodies hydrated with this cucumber rich detox recipe.

Cucumbers are a diuretic, which helps reduce water retention, and contain an enzyme called erepsin which helps digest proteins and supports healthy kidneys. They’re also low in calories, high in energy and extremely hydrating. So let’s get to it, shall we?

Ingredients

  • 2-3 large cucumbers
  • 2 apples
  • 1/4 organic beet or handful of strawberries
  • mint leaves

Simply juice everything together with a juicer and pour into two glasses with ice. Garnish with mint for little flair and taste. Enjoy!
