Pomegranate, Cucumber, Lemon Water

Makes 6 one-cup servings

Half a cucumber

2 fresh pomegranates

Half a lemon

4 cups of water

1. Slice half of a lemon and half of a cucumber. Remove the pomegranate seeds. Gently mash in a carafe using a mortar. Concentrate more on the pomegranate. Note: The pomegranate seeds will naturally fall to the bottom of the carafe. Add 4 cups of water and stir. Steep for a few hours, overnight if possible. The longer it infuses, the more goodness your body will receive.
