"I was desperate to come up with some cucumber recipes after my garden mass produced the veggie. I find this is a refreshing treat, especially after mowing the yard. Serve over ice. Garnish with mint, as your taste dictates." — sleepingKelly

cucumbers - peeled, seeded, and chopped
fresh lime juice
Good base recipe. I didn't have a lime, so I juiced one large lemon, instead. I also cut the sugar back to about 2 tbsp. and added some ginger for a kick. Yum!
Not bad with these alterations: 1/4 c. lime juice, 1/4 c. water & 4-5 ice cubes. I added some mint leaves as well. Make this in a blender only or it will be like mulch. Splenda substituted for the sugar makes the recipe much healthier. I can only see making this if trying to use up cucumbers or serve a novelty drink. My husband said a shot of tequila would improve it greatly :-)
Feeling adventurous?! Try using this recipe for a refreshing Cucumber Martini and using chili seasoning made for fruit (check your produce section) on the rim! YUM!!!
We love it! Simple, quick to make, yet extremely refreshing. We will be planting more cucumber plants next year for sure. thank you.
It was different, but very refreshing. Ice is a must, and mint is a nice addition too. I added a bit more sugar, but I have a sweet tooth! I recommend seeding the cucumber if you have time.
sleepingKelly, thank you so much for posting this recipe! I absolutly love it!
Very good, refreshing. My one complaint is it didn't say how much cucumber, since cucmbers come in all sizes "2 cucmbers" isn't much help. I uaed cucumbers which when blended equaled about 1.5 cups of liquid per cucumber. I also seeded the cucumbers.
