A cucumber mint slushie is delightful, so you’ll want to blend up this easy recipe on warm days.
Cucumbers and mint are a wonderfully refreshing combination.
This cold beverage is really easy to prepare, so it is the perfect pick me up for an afternoon that is dragging.
Even with the sugar added, it has a lot less calories than an icy frappe or soda.
When I’m buying cucumbers, I choose the non-waxed ones and then eat the peel.
The small, mini cucumbers may be marked as Persian Cucumbers.
The large, long ones may be marked either as English cucumbers or Japanese cucumbers depending upon the market you are in.
It will be obvious at a glance that they have not been waxed.
