Recipe: Uplifting Detox Drink

Mint and Lime Juice AKA Pudina Juice

Summer is upon us and this calls for a cool, refreshing detox drink. Introducing a treat for your tastebuds – this zingy Mint and Lime Juice, otherwise known in India as Pudina Juice. Pudina Juice is naturally rich in antioxidants, phytonutrients and menthol which promotes good gut health. Mint has many medicinal and detoxifying benefits, so as well as cooling your body it also works to cleanse the body internally and even the blood. (Win win)
