My friend and I bought some cucumbers from the market last weekend as they were cheap. However both of us did not manage to make use of the cucumbers to do any cooking. My friend even gave hers to me. What was I going to do with so many? Then I got an idea. Why not make cucumber juice! So I sprung into action. I washed the cucumbers, took some lemons from the fridge and also my tub of honey. Then I put the cucumber into the blender and pureed them. After that I sieved the puree as I only wanted the juice. Next I added lemon juice and a few tablespoons of honey.
Ingredients for 4 persons:
5 - 6 cucumbers
4 cups of water
3 - 5 tablespoons of honey.
- Pour 2 cups of water into blender. Chop up cucumber and blend until it is pureed.
- Sieve the pureed cucumber and pour the juice into a jug.
- Squeeze in the lemons and add honey, depending on how sweet you want your drink.
- Serve over ice with cucumber slices as garnish.
