I recently learned the amazing effects cucumbers can have on your health (read here). The health issues that this green vegetable aid unfortunately directly affect myself and loved ones in many ways. Needless to say we will be incorporating more cukes into our daily diet.
So, the first thing I decided to make was Cucumber Juice. I must say this turned out to be quite a beautiful spring beverage. The taste is a bit too strong for me, but after diluting it with water it became very refreshing. Lola on the other hand thought it was the best juice in the world, as is, and downed it (she also likes to sit and eat a cucumber like its a banana, weird but fine with me).
Other recipes with cucumbers I will try in the near future:
