Cucumber juice recipe

This refreshing and healthy recipe is a crisp way to cool down in warm weather.

Though it might sound unappealing to make a drink out of a vegetable, it’s actually pretty tasty and a great way to get a serving of veggies. Cucumbers are mainly composed of water, but still pack a good source of vitamins and folic acid. Magnesium, silica and potassium are found on the skin of a cucumber, and they also have vitamin K which aids in bone mass and in keeping healthy, glowing skin. They’re also low in calories and rich in vitamins A, C, and E. This cucumber drink recipe is quick and requires a minimal amount of ingredients.

For a cold summer treat, mix some chilli powder for fruits in the juice and freeze it in popsicle trays for a pepino con chile paleta 🙂
