My friend, Luciane, told me about a simple fruit & veggie drink that she makes with her juicer ~ Fresh Cucumber-Apple Juice. Her kids are just crazy about it AND it's as easy as can be to make ~ just cucumbers & apples. Cool! I was intrigued & decided to make it this morning for my breakfast drink.
Here's an interesting, little bit of info for you ~ a cucumber is technically a fruit & not a veggie. Since the seed is enclosed inside the flesh & the cucumber develops from a flower, it's a fruit. Ask a botanist ~ it's a fruit. Ask a cook ~ it's a veggie. Who, knew? Since I'm a cook, it's a veggie to me & always will be. :)
Thanks for sharing your recipe, Luciane!
Fresh Cucumber-Apple Juice
serves one ~ two
- one cucumber ~ well washed
- one apple ~ well washed
Serve straight-up or over ice.
Optional ~ if you want it a tad sweeter, just add another apple down the juicer chute... or stir in a touch of honey or a sprinkle of stevia.
