How to make it?
Juice two cucumbers in a hard juicer without peeling.
Add lemon juice.
Add honey or any sweeter for like. Chill with ice and serve.
While I use a hard juicer to juice cucumber, sometimes, I also add other hard fruits and vegetables like carrots and apples in my daily juice both taste great. And best thing is both are sweet. So you can reduce or skip honey if adding any of these.
But, as I always try to keep the recipe simple with fewer ingredients, I'm not adding these to this cucumber lemon juice. But are recommended addition if available. Apart from these bottle gourd without skin can also be added but it's quite tasteless.
If you do not have a hard juicer, you can still make cucumber juice in a blender. You might need to add a little water to make the cucumber move initially in the blender.
The extra step is to strain it through a coarse strainer. But it is doable. That's the reason why I find a hard juicer is easier and quicker.
Carrots, beetroot, apple, and pears are the best choice to be mixed with cucumber lemon juice. Especially because they can also go in the hard juicer with cucumber.
If you are using organic cucumbers, peeling is not needed at all. The peel has some nutrients, but it can be covered with pesticides too that's why some peeling people feel more comfortable with peeling, so it's a personal choice. As most of the peel is removed in the hard juicer, I recommended not going through the extra hassle of peeling.
Fresh cucumber has the highest nutritional value and it is best enjoyed when fresh. If you have to store it in the fridge, you can store it for up to 2-3 days in an airtight bottle. If you need to keep it longer, freeze it for up to 2 months.
If you wish to lose weight, cucumber lemon juice is best in the morning on the empty stomach or after a workout.
Honestly, cucumbers are not sweet naturally so you'll miss the sweetness and it won't taste as great but that's ok. It still tastes quite refreshing. I often juice an apple along with a cucumber when I wish to skip the honey.
