A delicious, cooling drink that is perfect for using up those extra summer cucumbers! This recipe is a new favorite of ours and we hope you will enjoy it just as much!
1. Peel and roughly chop cucumbers and place in a half gallon jar. Fill the jar with water, just enough to cover the cucumber chunks, and blend with an emersion blender until smooth. Alternatively, you can do this step in your countertop blender.
2. Strain the blended cucumber through a sieve to remove the pulp. The cucumber concentrate can now be poured into a 1 gallon container.
3. Add lime juice and mint leaves to the concentrate and fill the rest of the way with water. Sweeten to taste and add ice. Enjoy!
* Maple syrup is a great, all-natural sweetener for this drink, but you could use stevia powder/ concentrate, coconut sugar, honey, monk fruit, cane sugar, etc.
