Ah, are you looking for something to quench your thirst and beat the summer heat? Well, it looks like I’ve got exactly what you need! Growing up as Filipinos, we’re used to traditional refreshing drinks, or “samalamig” as we know it. These are the all-time favorite juice drinks like Sago’t Gulaman, Buko Pandan Juice, Melon Juice, and many more! But nowadays, Filipinos love a little bit of twist. They like their juice to be more healthy and unique-tasting. This is the exact reason why the Cucumber Lemon Juice became a huge hit when it was first introduced to us!
The perfect combination of cucumber and lemon balances the sweet and citrusy flavor of the juice. Making it an ideal drink to satisfy your thirst and at the same time provide tons of health benefits to your body! Cucumber contains antioxidants and can help you lower your blood sugar and aid in weight loss. On the other hand, lemon is extremely high in Vitamin C, fiber, and also antioxidants that can help reduce stress, boost your immunity, and lighten your mood. See? It’s really more than a juice!
So, what are you waiting for? Come and join me as we both learn from Panlasang Pinoy’s special recipe for today, the Cucumber Lemonade Juice Recipe!
Cucumber Lemonade Juice Recipe
Are you ready? Then let’s begin! Let me first review all the ingredients we’ll be using today. Of course, we need some lemon, cucumber, ice cubes, water, and honey. It’s recommended that you use Pure Wild Honey for better taste, but any kind of honey that’s already in your kitchen will do! Oh, and to make our preparations easier, we need to use a blender and a fine strainer. And that’s about it! As you can notice, all of the ingredients we’ll be using today can be normally found in your kitchen already and if not, you can still conveniently buy them from the nearest local market and grocery store. Also, the procedures are very simple and beginner-friendly as well, so you don’t have to worry about anything!
Now that we’re all set, it’s time to make some delicious and refreshing juice! The first thing that we’ll do is wash the lemon and cucumber thoroughly to remove excess dirt and debris. Then, cut them into slices accordingly. Once you’ve set aside the main ingredients, it’s now time to prepare the blender for some blending! Simply put the sliced lemon and cucumber into the blender, add some water, and honey, and blend it well. When it’s already blended, prepare the strainer and your preferred container for the Cucumber Lemonade Juice. You can use whatever you want, it could be a glass, a pitcher, etc. Just make sure to add some ice to make our drink extra refreshing!
The fine strainer ensures that no extra debris will mix with our juice, which tends to produce a bitter taste. Of course, you can add some more honey if you want, depending on your desired sweetness level. And voila! In as quick as 5 minutes, you’ve already made a healthy, delicious, and thirst-quenching drink for your family and friends.
