Cucumber Juice and Cucumber-tini’s

I am pretty much always looking for new and fun things to juice!  Today’s special is cucumber juice!itsbritneybitch 190

It was a pretty big cucumber. I wasn’t sure how much juice it would make, but I had high hopes! Into the juicer it went!

Health Benefits of Cucumbers :

  • Helps in kidney and urinary bladder disease.
  • Liver disease and Pancreatic disease
  • The potassium content of cucumber makes it highly useful for conditions of high and low blood pressure.
  • The high silicon and sulfur content of the cucumber is said to promote the growth of hair, especially when the juice of the cucumber is added to the juice of carrot, lettuce and spinach.
  • The high mineral content of this vegetable also helps to prevent splitting of nails of the fingers and toes.

It made a pretty good amount of juice. I was impressed. I know I make many juice  concoctions, but sometimes its nice just to juice one fruit or vegetable and embrace that flavor to the fullest.

No matter the juice, its ALWAYS fun to try it with alcohol! Boyf and I made cucumber-tini’s! Ole! Pretty, don’t you think?

You have to drink them pretty quickly. Once everything cools down,  and the ice melts, it’s not so fabulous to drink.

Do you juice? If you had to pick one fruit or vegetable to juice for the rest of time, what would you juice?

    This is strange, I google cucumber cocktails and came across your page. If you liked your cucumber tini you would love love love these cucumber margaritas we get a bar here in Baltimore. They are so refreshing it's like summertime in a glass. Basically they take some cucumber hunks and muddle them in a glass and add their housemade margarita on top. SO YUMMY
