Description

This cooling cucumber juice recipe is easy to whip up in a blender: no juicer needed! It’s a great way to use this hydrating vegetable.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 large English cucumber (or 1 to 1/2 standard cucumbers)*
  • 1 green apple
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1/2 tablespoon lemon or lime juice (optional)

Instructions

  1. If using a standard cucumber, peel it (no need to peel for an English cucumber!). Roughly chop the cucumber. Chop the apple, keeping the skin on. 
  2. Place the cucumber, apple, water, and salt in a blender. Blend on high until pureed and a juice forms.
  3. Pass the juice through a fine mesh sieve or a nut milk bag to strain out the pulp. Discard the pulp (or use: see ideas above). Stir in the fresh lemon or lime juice (add more if desired). Drink immediately over ice, or chill before drinking.

Notes

*We prefer using English cucumber because you can make the juice without peeling the cucumber.
