One of my favorite drinks is this refreshing cucumber lime drink by Harshita’s Kitchen. It’s so much better than the canned juices you buy at the stores! I highly recommend this drink because it’s really good. I first made this at a party, and it was an instant hit. Everyone loved it, even the kids. So we decided to make it every weekend this summer season. All you need to do is mix all the ingredients in a blender and it’s ready to serve. It’s sweet, minty, and citrusy. Drinking this on a hot sunny day is the best way to quench your thirst. Read on or watch the video below for full instructions.
Start by cutting the cucumber into small pieces, juicing one lime, and washing the mint leaves. Make sure to remove the seeds of the lime.
Add the pieces of cucumber into a blender, followed by the juice of 1 lime, 10 to 12 pieces of fresh mint leaves, and three tablespoons of sugar. You can adjust the amount of sugar depending on how sweet you want it to be. You can also use sweeteners if preferred.
Pour 2/3 cup of water into the blender and blend until smooth. Cucumbers have high water content, so you don’t really need to add a lot of water.
Add lots of ice cubes to a glass, then pour the cucumber drink. Garnish with a slice of lime and a few mint leaves on top. Serve and enjoy!
