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.

Ingredients

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

Direction

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