If you haven’t heard, let me tell you – juicing is extremely good for your health. And, with all that is taking place in the world right now it is a great time to beef up your healthy meal intake as much as possible. Staying hydrated has always been recommended but now more than ever; and what better way than with some 100% natural vitamin water.
Cucumber Juice offers numerous health benefits and drinking a few glasses a week paired with other delicious natural beverages like chilled Turmeric Tea and Cucumber/watermelon juice.
For years I stopped buy sodas and bottled/canned juices at the supermarket and I do not give them to my children – usually, the only beverage you can get at my house is water (or wine, depending on the day). But when my family yearns for something different, I turn to my blender to whip up an easy home-made juice.
Cucumber juice is one of my favorites for several reasons:
- Splendidly healthy! It is a hydrating drink that is rich in nutrients such as vitamins A, C, K, magnesium, silicon, and potassium.
- it takes 2 to 5 ingredients depending on your preferences;
- Less the 10 minutes from prep to readiness;
- Very refreshing!
Cucumbers are known to contain antioxidants which rid your body of things it does not want or need – cucumbers provide many essential vitamins and nutrients and are also great for skin and complexion – which is excellent news since we ladies cannot get professional facials at the spas anymore (as if I ever did lol!).
Cucumbers are hydrating if simply munched on, so blending them in to a juice is even more fantastic for your body because it can be digested more quickly and really add some great hydration which is EXTREMELY important right now.
To make about 1 Litre of Cucumber Juice (approximately 4 cups):
You will require:
4 cups water
1 Tbs Cane Sugar or honey
1 Tbs fresh ginger
1 cup fresh watermelon (chopped)
Simply add the ingredients to your blender, blend for about 2 minutes and pour in to cups or a jug – I prefer storing mine in glass containers, my empty wine bottles work perfectly 🙂
