We’ve been getting quite a few hot summer days here in Victoria and finding this minty thirst quencher couldn’t be more timely!

Not only is it super-refreshing, it’s also a supereffective belly flattener. Peppermint helps your stomach process fat. So if you’ve had one too many summer BBQ burgers & steaks, peppermint ensures high-fat foods are digested quickly and helps prevent bloat.

Your summer bodies will thank you for keeping hydrated with this easy-to-make drink.
