If I ever decide to open a spa (instead of a wine bar like I’m currently planning), I’m going to serve these Cucumber Coolers to my clients. They look and taste like refreshing cocktails, but there’s nothing in them except for whole fruits and veg. Crisp and clean – does it get better than that?
1 cup water
1/2 cup mint leaves, packed
1 apple, peeled
1 English cucumber, cut into large chunks
juice of 1/2 to 1 lemon (to taste)
1 cup ice
- Combine all ingredients, in the above order and starting with the juice of just 1/2 lemon, in VitaMix or ohter high speed blender. Process until smooth. Taste and decide if you need to add more lemon juice. Serve garnished with cucumber rounds.
