Blackberry, Blueberry and Mint Beauty Water Recipe via Kudos Kitchen By Renee

Are you looking for a drink that will super hydrate your body, has a wonderful flavor along with superb antioxidant protection? If so, then you must try my recipe for Blackberry, Blueberry and Mint Beauty Water.

From the moment you take your first sip of this wonderfully purple beauty water, you'll feel yourself getting younger, your skin will start glowing, and you'll have boundless energy to get you through your day. Seems like a tall claim, doesn't it? Just check out these health benefits of all the ingredients and you'll think differently.

Coconut water -  Coconut water contains cytokines and lauric acid, the two important elements which are used in the process of cell growth and their regulation. It has significant anti-ageing, anti-carcinogenic and anti-thrombotic properties which helps to minimize skin aging, balances PH levels and keeps the connective tissue hydrated and strong.

BlackberriesA cup of raw blackberries has 62 calories, less than a gram of fat, 2 grams of protein, no cholesterol and only 1 gram of sodium. It also gives you 7.6 grams of fiber, more fiber than a cup of bran flakes, which provide 7 grams. If you are trying to lose weight, blackberries can give you quick energy, and their fiber content can help you stay full until your next meal, preventing you from wanting to snack on more fattening foods.

BlueberriesNeutralizes free radicals which can affect disease and aging in the body: Blue Berries bring you the brightest ray of hope, for they are laden with anti oxidants and rank number 1 in the world of anti oxidants. This is mainly due to presence of Anthocyanin, a pigment responsible for the blue color of the blue berries. The abundance of vitamin-C is also a big factor for this as well.

Lime Juice -  Lime juice in cold water is a great and refreshing drink, which not only promotes weight loss but cools you down significantly more so than a regular bottle of water would! While being a fat burner, lime juice is also an excellent anti-oxidant. This helps your quest of losing weight by removing the toxins in your body and keeping you squeaky clean and ultimately feeling better over all.

Mint -  Soothing the digestive tract and if you are having stomach ache then it can be of great help.
Drinking herbal mint tea reduces irritated bowel syndromes, cleanses the stomach and also clear up skin disorders such as acne. Mint acts as a cooling sensation to the skin and helps in dealing with skin irritations. Mint helps in eliminating toxins from the body. Crushed mint leaves helps in whitening teeth and combat bad breath. Mint is a very good cleanser for the blood.
