I created this invigorating cocktail with my wonderful team at Glow Bio, my organic juice, smoothie and cleanse company. We have a lot of passion about putting life-changing drinks into people’s bodies to make a healthier world. Never doubt that a drink can change your life. This one is a great one to sip after a long day or on the weekends, as a nice reward. Well done, for just being you and taking care of yourself!
Ingredients
  • 1 medium cucumber (about 1⁄4 pound)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh mint leaves, plus a few sprigs for garnishing
  • 3⁄4 cup cool filtered water
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice
  • 3⁄4 teaspoon stevia
Instructions
  1. Peel the cucumber if it is nonorganic. Cut a single thin slice from one end of the cucumber and reserve. Juice the cucumber and the mint together in a juicer. If no juicer is available, blend the cucumber, mint and water in a blender or food processor, and then strain the mixture through a cheesecloth. Pour the cucumber juice into a tall glass.
  2. Stir in the lime juice, stevia and filtered water (if you did not blend it in already). You can shake this drink in a cocktail shaker with a little ice if you really want to emulate a cocktail, though digestion-wise drinking this cool but without ice is more ideal.
  3. Garnish the cooler with a beautiful sprig of fresh mint and the reserved cucumber slice.
