June 2nd: Grapefruit Mint Infused Water
Grapefruit and mint infused water is supposed to be helpful to lower cholesterol levels, aid to reduce/burn fat, give a boost in vitamin C, and suppress appetite. Who knows if it’s accurate! We hope!
Note: This information is not comprehensive and I do not claim this information as accurate. It was found online looking at some of the benefits of mint leaves and grapefruit. Please do not use if on medications without double checking for potential interactions. Grapefruit can interact with many different prescription and OTC meds.
How I Made It – For Two Containers
Cut 1 medium grapefruit into thin slices.
Each container receives 0.5 grapefruit.
Gently crumple 4 mint leaves. Two leaves in each container. Fill with water and place in fridge for 1 hour or overnight.
Once out of the fridge the mint leaves will turn a brown color and no longer taste good. Removal of the mint leaves once out of the fridge is what we did.
How Many Refills
Recommend 1 use. Cut more grapefruit and use new mint after finishing.
I am a huge fan of grapefruit and plain grapefruit juice, but I wasn’t a fan of the mint in the water. To make sure it was the mint and not the grapefruit, I tried it with just the fruit and found that I wasn’t opposed to it.
My fiance didn’t find it to be so disagreeable though.
Suffice to say, I won’t be making this one again for myself!
