Lately everyone's been preparing for the summer; going to the gym and going on the health kick. I've found this amazing refreshing drink that tastes great and is on the healthy side of life (better than sodas if i say so myself) and much quicker to make than juicing a load of fruit and veggys with as much benefits.

This amazing drink consists of mint and lemon, two refreshing compounds that have a lot of health benefits and tons of flavour.
  • a popular breath and mouth freshener
  • good for the respiratory system as it is menthol; helping with blocked noses, breathing and coughs as well as asthma 
  • mint juice is also an antiseptic, a cleanser and high levels of salicylic , working wonders for itchy skin, pimples and unclogging pores. 
  • mint has vitamin A, which strengthens skin tissue and helps to reduce oily skin. 
  • has antioxidants, anti- cancer properties and contains vitamin C
  • helps digestion, sleep, WEIGHT LOSS, acne and is a cold remedy

deepending on how much you would like to make. This recipe makes enough juice for 8-10 glasses

1 litre of cold water
250ml of boiling water
5 tablespoons of sugar (you could also use a sugar substitute) (you can also decrease the amount of sugar once you are familiar with the taste)
80gram of mint leaves (also to taste)
juice of 5-6 lemons (also to taste)

  1. firstly add the sugar to the boiling water and stir until the sugar has completed dissolved. 
  2. then add the warm sugar water, mint leave and lemon juice into a blender and mix until the mint leaves have are shredded. 
  3. finally pour into the mixture into a jug with cold water and place into the fridge.
