Refreshing Cucumber Lemonade
Prep time: 
Total time: 
Serves: 4
  • 1 medium sized cucumber, peeled or unpeeled (See notes)
  • Juice of 4 lemons
  • ⅓ cup granulated sugar (You can also use agave/honey)
  • 3 cups cold water
  • Ice, to serve
  1. Cut cucumber into smaller chunks and blend this with 1 cup of water. You can also use a juicer to extract the juice.
  2. If using a blender, place a fine-mesh strainer over a jug and pour the cucumber juice through it. Discard the pulp.
  3. In the jug, add lemon juice, sugar and water.
  4. Give it a good stir and let it sit in the fridge to chill. The sugar would gradually melt on its own.
  5. Add more water or sugar if required.
  6. Serve over ice.
If you are not using organic cucumber, I would suggest that you peel the skin of the cucumber. Some cucumber have bitter skin, so it would be better to peel the skin.
