Nowadays, the lemonades are booming, and it is not for less since the combination of the various fruits with the lemon turns out to be an excellent mixture. In our recipe today, cucumber lemonade, the fruit will not be the protagonist of this, because we will prepare it with a vegetable that is usually characterized by its freshness and being rich in water, in this case, we will use cucumber as the main ingredient.
As I mentioned earlier, lemonades are part of the table at any time of the day; these usually accompany any dish. In my particular case, I like to prepare them with various fruits that I have in the kitchen and provide them to my family to cool off when time warrants.
I tried the cucumber lemonade by chance and imagining it; I thought it was not pleasant to made with a vegetable. However, its flavor is quite unusual, it blends perfectly with the lemon juice, and when adding enough ice, it looks very refreshing
The way to prepare the lemonade changes according to the taste of each person, you can add the cucumber as it is, with its seeds and the peel, so I prefer. But some eliminate the seed and the skin so that the lemonade is not bitter.
You can also add some sweetener or peppermint, and if you do not want to liquefy the cucumber, add it to the water, let it rest so that it acquires all its flavor.
On the other hand, I think that consuming cucumber naturally is usually quite beneficial since it keeps the organism fresh because it contains a large percentage of water and fiber, which are also essential elements that needed for good digestion. Also, if it is included daily in salads, it helps to take care of weight, combats constipation, regulates stress, and blood pressure.
Therefore, I invite you to prepare this creamy cucumber lemonade to take advantage of this vegetable easily.
