Ingredients for cucumber detox water

  • Water: Use regular purified water that you use at home for drinking purposes. Make sure you don't add any salt or sugar to the water.
  • Cucumber: Use fresh cucumbers for this recipe. Thinly slice them before adding them to the water. I don't peel the cucumbers before slicing them as the skin contains nutrients. 
  • Lemon: Fresh and thinly sliced lemon adds a citrusy flavor to the water. Lemon is rich in vitamin C and therefore offers several nutrients apart from the flavor. You can use fresh lime instead of lemon as well.
  • Mint leaves: Mint is a breath of fresh air. It has a unique flavor that offers a cooling effect. Use fresh mint leaves. Wash them and add them to the water. 
  • Ginger: Ginger has been used for centuries because f its medicinal properties. Choose young ginger root for this recipe. Grate it to get maximum benefits.


Follow these simple instructions to prepare this detox cucumber water recipe:

Step 1: in a glass pitcher, pour water and add slices of cucumber, lemon, mint leaves and grated ginger. 

Step 2: let the water sit overnight so that the flavors and nutrients infuse into the water.

Step 3: Drink this water the next whole day. You can store it in the refrigerator or add ice cubes as well. 


  • Although this combination offers amazing benefits, you can add more ingredients like orange slices and rosemary sprigs to this detox water. 
  • Don't store this water for more than a day. If you have some leftovers, discard them at the end of the day.

    Looks delicious, would love to try it. But there must be a typo mistake: 2 cucumbers and 1(0?) cups of water. What’s your ratio?

    1. Hello Heidi, yes it indeed was a typo and calls for 10 cups of water. Hope you will enjoy this refreshing recipe!
