Sparkling Cucumber Detox and Refresher
Serves: 4 Servings
And as far as what you should drink when you want to help your body to recover from overindulgence... 16 ounces of water, green tea, Cucumber Detox Refresher (recipe below) or one of our other detox drinks-- or a combination of any of these at every meal. Cucumbers are packed with antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties which is especially helpful if you have had too much salt the night before and woke up feeling swollen.
  • 4 medium cucumbers, peeled and chopped
  • Juice of ½ lime (about 1 tablespoon)
  • Lime seltzer
  • Mint, for garnish
  1. To make cucumber juice:
  2. Blend the chopped cucumbers in a food processor for 2 to 3 minutes, then pour the mash into a strainer placed over a bowl. Use a spatula to press the liquid from the pulp (this also makes the drink less frothy). For less pulp, use cheesecloth or coffee filters over your strainer. Refrigerate.
  3. For 1 serving of Sparkling Cucumber Detox and Refresher:
  4. Fill a 12-ounce glass halfway with ice and add 4 ounces of cucumber juice. Add ¼ tablespoon lime juice. Top with 4 ounces seltzer or more if desired. Add a wedge of lime and a mint sprig.
