Fresh Cucumber Juice

Cucumber r always very good as salads,the fresh cucumber is still a very good source of the vitamin C and the mineral molybdenum. It is also a good source of vitamin A, potassium, manganese, folate, dietary fiber and magnesium.Technically it is a fruit because it contains the seeds to reproduce, but typically cucumbers are grouped with veggies due to their use. The fruit is commonly harvested while still green, and eaten as a vegetable, whether raw, cooked, or made into pickled cucumbers... i tried it out as juice n its really refreshing n tastes too good, kids will surely love this..whoever bored of salads can try this juice..worth to try..


1 no Cucumber(chopped roughly)
1tbsp Sugar r sweetner
1 pinch Salt
Water (as per need)
Ice cubes

Add cucumber pieces, sugar r sweetner, salt with required amount of water n beat them nicely in a food processor..strain the beaten juice in a colander...add water as ur wish, add sugar n salt if needed...

For sugar free juice, can add sweetner instead of sugar, very good for diabetic peoples too..

Serve with ice cubes...Enjoy!!!!!!

It's believed that you should not drink water after fruits, and especially after eating cucumbers or water melon. It causes what is called as "haijaa".

How long have you drank cucumber juice? Has anyone got any trouble sofar?
