If you are looking for a flat belly diet drink, there is none better than this Belly Fat Diet Drink with Mango & Basil, how and why mangoes?, well here’s the scoop, mangoes are known as the fruit of the Gods, rich in vitamin c – great for bone and muscle strength, rich in fiber – great to keep your bowels moving, rich in vitamin B6, which helps in de-bloating, thereby helping you to wake up in the morning and not feel four pounds heavier and slipping on your favourite pair of jeans for that night out. Lastly soaking mangoes in water helps in dissolving their phytic acid which is notorious for heat related breakouts. Basil oil is known for its anti inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and hence is a great herb to consume especially in the summer months.
1 litre plain drinking water
1/2 medium sized ripe mango, cut in cubes
5-6 basil leaves
In a large glass jar add in plain water, peeled and cubed pieces of mango along with washed and cleaned basil leaves.
Stir in all the additions into the water so that they don't settle at the bottom of the jar.
Cover the jar with a lid and allow this water to be infused with all the goodness of the basil leaves and mangoes. Allow to steep at least for 6 hours, but overnight is preferred. You may refrigerate the jar of water as well.
The next morning pour out the water into a drinking glass, and drink instead of plain water or high calorie sodas.
You can use the same ingredients by changing the water two times, after which, discard the mangoes and basil leaves and make a fresh batch.
