Strawberry N Cucumber Shake - Pinkish Cooler

Strawberries contain a range of nutrients, with vitamin C heading the group. They also contain significant levels of phytonutrients and antioxidants, which fight free radicals. These antioxidant properties are believed to be linked to what makes the strawberry bright red.In addition to vitamin C, strawberries also provide an excellent source of vitamin K and manganese, as well as folic acid, potassium, riboflavin, vitamin B5, vitamin B6, copper, magnesium, and omega-3 fatty acids.Strawberries are among the most versatile of fresh fruits. Unfortunately, they are quite perishable as well. So purchase fresh strawberries only a few days before they are to be eaten. When strawberries are in season locally this is rarely a problem. But at other times of the year, it may be necessary to make due with frozen strawberries..Handle strawberries properly and store them well after they have been purchased. Like all fruit, strawberries should be washed thoroughly prior to eating or storage. Any strawberries that show signs of mold should be discarded at once, as they will contaminate the remaining strawberries. The strawberries should be placed in a bowl, covered with plastic wrap, and kept in the refrigerator. Fresh strawberries will keep in the fridge for a few days. Since last week, i never thought i will found out strawberries at my farmer's Market, yep i bought delicious fresh strawberries..i want to make quite something different as shake with cucumber and prepared this shake...They tastes delicious n prefect for sunny days...This is my entry for FIC-Pink/Rose guest hosted by Me, event started by Sunshinemom of Tongueticklers, also goes to AFAM-Cucumber guest hosted by Neha, event started by Maheswari...
