I am on the challenge to lose the Christmas weight that I put on from eating all those lovely puddings, cakes, cookies and of course from all the meat we ate from braaing all the time. I have this really strict diet that I used before to lose 10kg and so now this Mamma is back on the bandwagon to lose as much as I can before I turn 30 on the 3 Feb! So far so good and I have lost 1kg but so much more to go!

So naturally I have been looking for ways to increase my metabolism and detox and I came across Sassy Water on Pinterest and followed it A Sweet Simple Life  to get the recipe!

It helps to detox and with bloating so this mama made it and I can tell you it is delicious and refreshing and they recommend that you drink it for 4 days. After two days I can say that I do feel a bit of a difference.

Sassy Water Recipe:

Prep time: 5 minutes

Chill time: overnight or 9 hours


1 half of a cucumber

1 lemon

10 mint leaves

2 litres of water

Optional: you can add 1 teaspoon of fresh grated ginger (I’m not a fan) for extra benefit


Slice the cucumber and lemon into slices and put them into the jug that you are going to use and add the mint leaves. If you are going to add the ginger, add it now. Add the water and leave the water overnight to gain more flavour and drink the water the following day.

Note: the longer you leave the mint in the water the stronger the mint flavour becomes and this can be a bit too minty after a while so once you have let it stand overnight, take the mint leaves out.

Enjoy and let me know if it works for you?
