Slimming Raspberry Mint Detox Spritzer

By now you probably know that as both dietitians and personal trainers who love veggies–and who also have a big sweet tooth that we have to work hard to keep in check (oy!) ;), we don’t mind it at all when you request some drinks to help immediately get your mind and body back on the healthy track!  We understand and enjoy the drinks ourselves! 🙂  After all, in addition to starting our day by drinking a large glass of water, on days when we want an extra lift, we also have one of our refreshers like our Kale Recharge Smoothie, Sparkling Cucumber and Refresh Detoxer, or we go for one of our smoothies that use the Easiest Way To Get our Greens — or when we feel like we want a fresh start after eating foods that we don’t typically eat, we go for this Slimming Raspberry Mint “Detox” Spritzer that we just added to our list!

This  Slimming Spritzer and drinks like this “flusher” are rich in water and help you to rinse out bloating sodium from your body, “de-puffing” you and making you feel lighter. The potassium from the fruit will also fight bloat as it helps to restore normal hydration status.

 

  • The fruit’s vitamin C in the Slimming Spritzer will make your skin gorgeous, soft and supple by promoting collagen formation. Plus it will hydrate your skin (i.e., you’ll glow) and you can kiss goodbye to a puffy face and eyes.

 

  • The Minty Bonus: 🙂 After over-indulgences, your insides are likely on the fritz–mint’s antioxidant rosmarinic acid, has anti-inflammatory properties to ease the havoc inside your body!  Plus mint helps to ease indigestion–it soothes the stomach and is a calming herb). It is thought to improve the flow of bile through the stomach, which helps to speed and ease digestion.

 

This slightly sweet, slightly tangy drink helps to bust sugar cravings! And as you sip it throughout the day, it will fill you up, preventing you from overeating and helping you to lose tummy fat! Flat belly ahoy! 🙂

For best results, make several batches of this yumster, and drink it before meals and it sip it during the day. 

Note: If seltzer doesn’t agree with your stomach, makes you feel too full or actually makes you feel bloated, simply sub it for water.

Ingredients:
• 8 ounces seltzer water
• 3 raspberries
• Sprig of mint
• Juice of 1/2 lime (optional)
Directions: Pour seltzer in a glass, add raspberries and mint. Enjoy!

*Tip– let the drink sit for a few extra minutes in the refrigerator to allow a stronger raspberry flavor.

      Hi Kim! Sorry for the delay– we just found your comment! It’s great to start the day with it. As much as you can have it with meals and snacks is great too– it’s just another way to flush bloat by restoring normal fluid balance. We hope this helps! x & x, T & L
