Perfect for a hot summers day, this watermelon detox water is sweet, soothing and fresh.
- 4 cups watermelon cubes or balls
- 6 sprigs mint fresh
- 1/2 lime thinly sliced
- 1/2 lemon thinly sliced
- 2 liters water
Place watermelon cubes, slices of lemon and lime into pitcher (to avoid bitterness, peel lemon and lime). Lightly crush watermelon, lemon, and lime. Crush mint leaves in your hand by lightly rubbing your hands together, then place in the pitcher.
Add 2 liters of still water. If you prefer a sparkling detox water, add 1 liter of sparkling water and allow to infuse and then add the rest of the sparkling water when ready to serve.
After adding 2 liters of still water or 1 liter of sparkling water, place pitcher in the fridge for at least 2 hours to allow the fruit and mint to infuse the water.
Take the pitcher out of the fridge, stir the ingredients well. Add ice.
Optional: If you wish you can strain the detox water and discard (or eat!) the solids. Then either drink it as is or garnish with fresh watermelon, lemon and mint to serve.
Refrigerated, the watermelon detox water will keep for up to 2 days.
