How to make this glowing skin water?
chia seeds or basil seeds
An inch of ginger
A glass of chilled water
Honey to taste (optional)
Make sure to wash the cucumber, ginger and mint leave well under running water, in order to get rid of any dirt or impurities, as these ingredients are going to be consumed raw.
Since the cucumber is going to be used with the skin, you can rub some salt all over the cucumber and soak them in plain for 10 to 15 minutes before chopping it into pieces to use.
Into a little water (approximately ¼ cup), add in the chia seeds and let them soak for 15 to 20 minutes before using it.
For the drink:
Into a mixer blender, add in the chopped cucumber pieces, an inch of ginger (lightly crushed), and the mint leaves, along with a glass of chilled water, and blend well until liquidy. Strain into a glass and add in some honey to taste. Then, add in the soaked chia seeds, stir well and consume immediately.
While blending, you could also just blend in the cucumber, ginger and mint leave into a fine paste before adding in the water and giving it a final blend. This will help get the consistency more liquidy quicker and more easily.
