Lemon and Cucumber Water

Make this drink in summer and stay hydrated. It has vitamins that will cleanse the stomach and boost your immune system. There are supplements in this drink that'll reduce high blood pressure, cholesterol, and to some extent, it'll reduce the risk of cancer. If you don't like to drink simple/tap water, you should change your drinking routine to lemon and cucumber water. This drink has many benefits, I am sure if you'll try it once, you will make it again and again.


One medium size cucumber

12 to 20 mint leaves

2 to 3 Lemons


Before making this drink, clean all the ingredients by gently rubbing them under tap water.

Starting making the drink by peeling the cucumber's skin thoroughly. Cut the cucumber into three big pieces and takeout all the seeds from them. When you are done, slice those three big pieces into much smaller pieces. If you slice them, they will easy dissolve in water, along with other ingredients.

Take mint leaves and cut them in half. Cutting will enhance flavor, and they'll easily mix with other ingredients.

Slice lemons into thin pieces and set them aside.

Take a jug and add 2 quarter of water in it. Put the sliced cucumber in the jug and mix gently for a minute. If you want, you can leave the jug in a refrigerator for an hour. This process will dissolve cucumber supplements in water.

Add mint leaves, lemon slices, and mix for a minutes. Put ice cubes in this drink and serve as you want to.

Extra ingredients and Information

There are some ingredients you can add in this drink. In the end if you don't like the taste, you can add strawberries and pineapple to change the flavor. You can also use orange instead of lemon, but for better taste I personally recommend use of lemon. You have the option to add your favorite ingredients beside strawberries and pineapple.

Note: If you leave this drink for 2-3 hours in the refrigerator, this drink will have much better flavor as compare to drinking instantly. Leaving it will allow supplements to dissolve in water, which in return will give a much stronger taste.

My Experience

When I feel like I have had too much artificial drinks and junk food in past weeks, I change my routine to cucumber water and similar drinks. I usually add healthy food in my diet, along with a little bit of exercise to live a healthy life.
