This vegetable slushie is extremely refreshing and satisfying. On a hot summer night this drink can definitely be “dinner.” With tequila, it may be dessert as well…
We use cucumber, celery, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, and purslane. The exact ingredients are totally flexible, as is the case with any vegetable drink. I do recommend the cucumber for its ability to hydrate without adding too much flavor from the drink. The flavor here comes from the garlic, jalapeño, and cilantro. In these quantities, they may grow hair on your chest and prevent cancer at the same time. Purslane is a “weed” that may be growing on your property but you can also find it in season at Mexican grocery stores. Read more about purslane.
We like to freeze the cucumber and celery in advance so that they become the “ice” in the drink.
This is wonderful! Thanks! I used ice to blend it instead of the cold water so it was very refreshing with a tad of the heat.
Cucumber rich in water and has the nice taste. This fruit also beneficial to overcome diabetes
Cucumber is one of the fruits that I like and it is good to eat. But I’ve never made a glass of cucumber juice.
