How many of you have the summer bloat from too many beers and burgers?
*raise your hand* C’mon, don’t be shy. I know I can’t be the only one 😉
Well, it’s a good thing you stopped by today because I have something that is going to help you with that. Best thing is, it’s one of the easiest things to do and you probably already have the ingredients.
We have all heard how cucumber water and lemon water have all these health benefits when you drink them separately. Can you imagine the powerhouse your simple drinking water becomes when you combine the cucumbers and lemons together? Bam! Toxins begone! To add a bit of sour fun, let’s add the limes with all their vitamins and minerals.
I’ve only been to a spa a handful of times and every time we’ve gone to get a fancy massage they always hand us cucumber water afterwards. I guess they’re on to something!
Detox water benefits:
Helps to maintain body fluids including digestion to body temperature.
-Helps to fight infections, cleanse the kidney, reduces bloating.
Pretty amazing, right?

I am raising my hand! I certainly need a body detox! So going to try this!
Stacie @ Divine Lifestyle says
I can’t wait to try this! It sounds amazing – and not all detox drinks do – and I love that it’s so easy to make.
Betsy Segars says
SOO good. I like to put essential oils in my water to detox.
This sounds so good. I love lemon lime anything so this is something I need to add into my life. Sounds so refreshing!
I literally have been drinking lemon water and lime water seperately as of recently…but I never thought to combine them and add cucumbers! I love all 3 of these items and to make a detox water sounds like what I need because I am raising my hand….I have a little belly bloat from bad summer eating and traveling lol!
Liz Mays says
Well this combo sounds like it was meant to be! Those benefits all sound great.
Ashley Sears says
I had no idea cucumbers were good for lowering blood pressure! This sounds like a refreshing drink.
Seattle Travel Blogger says
I love adding lemon and cucumber to my water. Not only is it super tasty, but it’s super beneficial as well!
This is such great information! I love the idea of a detox water that I can make at home with things I already own.
This looks so refreshing! I’d like to put some in my gym water bottle for a post workout boost as well!
Candy O says
Lemons also help detox your liver. Well.. when you have them with hot water. I’lm going to be trying this recipe soon. Thanks for sharing!
Sabrina @ Dinner, then Dessert says
Staying hydrated is important! I love the added flavors!
Anne - Mommy Has to Work says
I so need this after this summer. I did not eat or exercise the way I wanted to.
I need pitchers of this. None of my fall clothes are going to fit if I don’t get things back in order.
Ann Bacciaglia says
This would be perfect for me. I am trying to eat healthier. I am going to try this on the weekend.
I have been drinking tons of water with lemon and lime. I’ll have to add the cucumber this week.
Debbie Denny says
Love this combination. Great and tasty way to detox
I actually have used this before and I loved it. It is refreshing (especially in the summer) and it tastes good.
Dawn McAlexander says
It’s not often that I can say that a detox drink actually looks tasty, but this one sure does. I think even if it didn’t have the detoxifying benefits, I would still love to try it.
vanessa: BriteandBubbly says
I need to do one of these as my doctor said I should do a cleanse and some kind of detox. This would be perfect!
Megan Elford says
I really need a detox too – this summer has been non-stop celebrations, eating out, and eating lots of barbecue. It all takes it’s toll after awhile!
I need to drink more water! A detox would be great!!! I’ll give this recipe a try and pretend i’m a spa! lol
Yes, this will be my favorite drink of choice all summer. Normally, I just use lime and lemon but I will now add the cucumbers to help detoxify my system. Great to know! Thanks.
Diana Villa says
I need that Detox water in my life! Thanks for the great post 😀
I love lemon water and cucumber water, but I’ve never thought to combine them. Excellent idea! I’m doing this first thing in the morning. I need a good detox.
I make this all the time. I also Add a mint leaf and a couple shavings of ginger root (helps an upset tummy). Thank you.
Shelley Zurek says
Just started putting cucumbers into water. Can’t believe how lovely they are and the taste infused to the water.
Joanne T Ferguson says
Thanks for highlighting another way I can stay hydrated as love the combination of lemon and lime! So healthy for me too!
rika agustini says
great recipe and sounds like very easy to make! I love Lemon and Lime . I use them almost everyday on any recipe.
Annemarie LeBlanc says
Looks like a refreshing detox drink. I have read a lot of recipes for infused water, but I was just thinking.. wouldn’t it be better to eating the vegetables as it is instead of soaking it in water?
You could and many people use the leftover fruit and vegetables from their infused water, freeze it, and then use it as filler in their smoothies. So, yes, you could just eat them, but for people who dont like plain water, this is a good way for them to flavor their water and not use those chemical-laden flavor packs.
Tracy @ Ascending Butterfly says
OMG “Bloated from too many beers and burgers” I nearly spewed water on my monitor just now! LOL Like you said there must be a good reason this is the drink on offer the moment you walk into a spa! They are definitely on to something! I’ve actually been surprisingly alcohol light this summer, but a good detox is helpful year round in my book!
Chubskulit Rose says
This looks so refeshing! I love this when the heat of the sun is so intense. It tastes wonderful!
Alyssa C says
I’ve been meaning to try this detox water, it looks so refreshing!
I didn’t bloat from too many beers. I did bloat from too many burgers. LOL. I would love to try this. I need to detox badly.
Nina Say says
Yes, this is an amazing detox drink. It is one of my favorites, and tastes great.
I love drinking infused water. I usually just add lemon slices, I’ll have to try it with lime.
Michelle @ Dishes and Dust Bunnies says
I’ve heard of doing something like this before but haven’t tried it. I really should though since it sounds healthy and refreshing! thanks!
You’re right, I totally do have all of the ingredients. It was a great post to share!
I’m actually planning for next week to be a total detox week! I need to get back on track and stop the overeating craziness that has been my life lately. This would make a great addition to my detox week 🙂
Rebecca Swenor says
This sounds like an awesome detox water I would love to try. I have everything but the cucumbers which I so love. Thanks so much for sharing.
I drink lemon water quite a bit, especially if it’s a hot. I never tried it with limes, though. Maybe next time!
This is one of my favorite things to drink! It’s so refreshing and the citrus reminds me of summer.
up run for life says
I love drinking lemon or lime water. I am going to have to give this one a try.
I LOVE detox waters! I do something similar with my lemon essential oils but I bet fresher is better!
Mimi "MimiCuteLips" Green says
This is right on time for me, I’ve been eating so much junk lately. I’m going to try and get myself together, this is a great way to get started.
Winter White says
I’m not really a fan of water (I know I know) but I think this could actually drink more of it. I really enjoy cucumber water and I like having lemon in it to add some flavor so both would be really refreshing!
I am doing this next week. Thanks for sharing. I can’t wait to get some lemons and limes now!
