Cucumber Lemonade

Cucumber lemonade is really quite simple to prepare and will add a little jump in your step when consumed. Well, at least it did for me.

Attempting to keep hydrated over the last few days, I decided to spice up my water routine. First I added some cucumbers, then some sliced lemons, which naturally lead to adding freshly squeezed lemon juice and finally, a dash of honey. This is how my cucumber lemonade recipe was born.

What is your favorite way to keep hydrated?

Cucumber Lemonade

Yields: 1 mason jar

Ingredients

Method

  • Thinly slice the cucumber until you have 8 pieces.
  • Cut half a lemon into slices.
  • Place the cucumber and lemon slices into the mason jar.
  • Squeeze the juice from the other half of the lemon into the mason jar.
  • Add honey, if so desired.
  • Cover the cucumber and lemon with water.
  • Let sit for 5-10 minutes.

Tips and Notes

  • I suggest choosing organic cucumbers and lemons since they will be soaking in the water. If organic is not an option, washing and peeling the cucumbers and lemons will help.
  • The longer the cucumber and lemon slices are soaking, the stronger the taste.
  • You can always add another sweetener if honey is not your thing.
  • Experiment by adding some mint to create a different flavor.
  • Keep adding more water to the mason jar over the course of a few days. Switch out the cucumber and lemon slices when they no longer float, are translucent and/or your water doesn’t have the taste you desire anymore flavor. [/print_this]

Keep drinking this cucumber lemonade all summer and you’ll sure to be cool, hydrated and refreshed!
