Cucumber Mint Lemonade recipe – raw, healthy and refreshing to help you stay deliciously hydrated during the hottest of summer days.

 

Cucumber Lemonade

Like a mocktail that is actually good for you and your skin, this easy delicious lemonade is going to be your new best friend all summer long.

Fresh Mint. Refreshing Cucumbers. Zesty Lemons! (Do not use store bought lemon juice here).

If you are feeling adventurous I dare you to add a spicy jalapeño or two into mix. Or just add a couple of slices floating over the top in each glass when serving. It’s bold and fabulous!

There is absolutely no cooking involved! All you need is a powerful blender or food processor to puree the ingredients into a smooth texture beverage reminiscent of aqua fresca. Actually I’m pretty sure that technically speaking this is a cucumber aqua Fresca after all. Ha! Whatever you want to call it is fine with me!

 

In the Mood for a Cocktail?

All you need to do is add a splash of your favorite rum or vodka to your lemonade and voila! Happy hour like a boss, don’t forget to give yourself a very generous tip!

Make it Refined Sugar Free

To make the recipe whole food plant based compliant you can sweeten it with a few dates, maple syrup or date syrup or a touch of coconut nectar. Have some fun by adding a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds into the mix as well. Stay deliciously hydrated and refreshed, take it to the potluck, bbq or garden party and share with all your friends.
