Cucumber and lime combined with water is the ultimate refresher! You'll feel like you're at a day spa. Skip the sugar for a low-cal option.
Ingredients:
3 quarts water
3 cucumbers, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/4 cup sugar
Crushed ice (optional)
Slice of lime for garnish (optional)
Directions:
1 Pour 1/2 cup of the water and 1 cup of the cucumbers in blender. Blend until cucumbers are pureed then add more cucumbers and water until all cucumbers are pureed.
2 Using a fine-mesh sieve, strain cucumbers into a pitcher to remove seeds and pulp. Stir in remaining water, lime juice and sugar.
3 Chill before serving over crushed ice garnished with a slice of lime and mint sprig.
4 ENJOY!
