Cucumber Basil Water

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber
  • 4 leaves of basil
  • 1/4 lime, peeled
  • 3 cups water

Directions

  1. Put all ingredients in a Nutribullet cup or blender and blend until its all liquid.
  2. (Optional) If you’re not a fan of the fibrous thickness of your drink, pour the mixture over a mesh strainer and it will remove the thickness, leaving you with flavored water essentially. Don’t worry about losing the fiber! What you’re getting rid of is insoluble fiber which your body just uses to transport the nutrients to your cells, and then gets rid of. All the nutritious fiber is still left in your cup!
