Various industrial “vitamin waters” are actually filled with artificial sweeteners that make more harm than good to our body. If you are one of those who do not like to drink water and who doesn’t like its smells or taste but still want to enjoy refreshing drinks, we suggest a home-made recipe for your own “vitamin water” that will especially be beneficial for your digestion and stomach.
– 2 liters of water (best filtered one)
– 1 teaspoon of freshly grated ginger
– 1 medium sized cucumber\
– 1 lemon
– 12 mint leaves
Cut to small pieces cucumber and lemon and if you have homemade fruits that are not treated with pesticides, it is desirable to use them with peel. Put the pickled cucumbers and lemons in the jar and add the other ingredients and pour them all over with water. Store the water in the refrigerator and leave it to at least 8 hours, stirring it occasionally.
