Cooling Cucumber Slushie

cooling cucumber slushie

Instead of turning on the A/C, how about drinking a tall glass of cooling cucumber slushie?  What a refreshing way to start the morning!  So glad I found this recipe on Super Natural Every Day by Heidi Swanson.  You can create multiple variations using different fruit such as Korean melons (참외), watermelons, strawberries, peaches, apples, pears, etc.


5 small cucumbers, peeled
1 cup of filtered water
4 cups of ice cubes
1/4 cup of raw honey  (This seems like a lot of honey to the “new” me.  Adding strawberries or apple to help sweeten up seems much better now.)
1/4 lime


In a blender, combine cucumber, water, ice, honey, and lime juice. Pulse until completely smooth and frosty.
