Oh how I adore this pink drink. Strawberry Cucumber Juice tastes amazing, especially on sweltering summer days. The base of the drink is English cucumber, a juicing workhorse that gives up an abundance of cooling cucumber juice. Strawberries add a striking pink color, while an apple or two adds sweetness to balance the bite of fresh ginger and lime. Serve the fresh juice over ice, and keep cool.If you follow me on Instagram, you got a preview of this strawberry cucumber juice recipe. I often post pictures of recipes as I am testing them, follow me on Instagram if you’d like to see what I’m making.
Fresh Strawberry Cucumber Juice Recipe
1 large English cucumber, peeled, ends removed
1 or 2 medium to large apples, cored (use 2 if you want a sweeter tasting juice)
2 cups large fresh strawberries, tops removed
1 inch piece fresh ginger, peeled
1 medium lime
Cut cucumber and apple into pieces to fit the feed chute of your juicer. Juice strawberries, cucumber, apple and ginger into a glass container. (Follow manufacturer’s directions to determine the optimal juicer speed and the order for juicing.) Cut lime in half and squeeze juice from lime into the cucumber juice mixture. Serve over ice.
Makes about 2 1/2 to 3 cups, depending on juiciness of fruit and efficiency of juicer
Tip: My juicer doesn’t extract juice from citrus very well, so I prefer to squeeze the lime by hand. If your juicer does a good job on citrus, peel the lime and run it through your juicer.More fresh juice recipes:
