ice cold cucumber lemonade

Share

recently a friend asked if i had ever used frozen cucumbers in a recipe. intriguing question and at that point i had not, now i’m nearly obsessed. instead of ice cubes, my freezer is full of peeled and chopped cucumbers that are ready for immediate use. the result? a super slushy cool liquid refreshment that has swept me off my feet and taken over as a main sorce of hydration. it is worth finding the aloe juice because of its extreme nutritional prowess, however, if aloe is not immediately available fresh water will work as well. dare to dazzle yourself with the most refreshing drink of the summer!

    I love drinks with cucumber! I made a smoothie with cucumber and loved it! I also love the addition of aloe vera juice! I was just at the natural foods store and forgot to put that on my list.

  5. Can you believe I’ve never made lemonade before?! I’ve so got to try this! Love how it’s made with stevia, too.

  6. I love the cucumber and lemon combination and often put a few pieces of each in my water to drink during the day. I love the idea of freezing the cucumbers then blending all the ingredients together along with a touch of sweetness – trying this new version out soon.
