Post-Chrissy Detox Iced Tea
I’m sure that the last few days have been all about food!
As fun as it has been, no doubt you have eaten things not on your usual menu. Gut feeling a little off?
I like taking a few days in between Christmas and New Year’s Day to reset my body a little bit. This drink is the perfect way to reset your tummy while passing a lazy summer day with a good book or magazine. It’ll give you a clean energy boost while acting as a cleanser for your gut.
Looking for an adults-only version? Maybe a splash of gin? So much for a cleanse – ha ha!
What you need:
2 cups (500 ml) green tea, frozen in ice cube trays
½ cup grapes, halved
1 tbs honey
1 handful mint leaves
Juice of 1 lime
300 ml coconut water
½ Lebanese cucumber, thinly sliced
1 tbs chia seeds
1 tsp aloe vera juice (optional if you can’t easily find it)
Put all of the ingredients into a jug and stir. Leave for 10 minutes to let it thicken. Enjoy!
