Cool Green Summer Beverage

A delicious way to use up all those cucumbers from the CSA is to blend them up in a cool, refreshing drink. Since they are composed of 90% water it makes perfect sense to drink them.

Cucumber Mint Lemonaide Slush

1 cucumber, peeled and chopped
juice of 1 lemon
2-3 TBS sugar (to taste)
4-6 mint leaves
1 cup ice
3 oz tequila or rum (optional)

Put all ingredients in blender. Enjoy!

Another option is this recipe I just stumbled upon but haven't tried yet.

And here's another one using that lovely caramel-colored bottle of Pimm's I just happen to have in my cupboard.

  1. That looks wonderfully refreshing. I love drinks with cucumber. And I've got one from my last CSA box in the fridge right now. Yum!
