Pairing cucumber juice with little honey and lemon juice gives you a great tasting drink that is full of Vitamin C. While fresh fruits are a bit pricey, this simple and inexpensive vegetable makes soothing drink to fill your mornings.
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 recipe simple with less ingredients,I'm not adding these in 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.
Frequently Asked Questions
Should I peel Cucumbers?
If you are using organic cucumbers, peeling is not needed at all. The peel have a some nutrients, but they 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 peel is removed in the hard juicer, I recommended not to go through extra hassle of peeling.
Can I make cucumber juice in a blender?
Yes! 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 do-able. That's the reason why I find hard juicer is easier and quicker.
