Earlier this week, I received an invitation from Ally of Om Nom Ally to participate in her Smoothie Of The Week link-up. I have been planning on featuring this super simple cucumber and lime juice recipe that I grow up with for a while now, and Ally’s invitation is the much needed nudge for me to finally post this recipe 🙂
Growing up, my Mom often made this cucumber and lime juice. It is super cheap and really refreshing, given that we live in tropical country. Since my Mom has the patience of a saint, she would make super thin strips of ribbons from cucumber, then she would separately make a simple refreshing lime juice and we get to add as much cucumber into our lime juice as we want. I guess in the old days, not a lot of households own a blender, and this is a tried and true way to go. The spoiled me, who own a blender (and other shiny kitchen gadgets as well), have no patience to make it the old ways. And so, I just dump all the ingredients in a blender to make my juice. ♥
- 1 cucumber (about 200 gram), peeled and roughly chopped
- 250 ml cold drinking water
- 2 tablespoon lime juice
- 3 tablespoon sugar
- Put everything in a blender and process until smooth.
- Transfer to pretty serving glasses (or jars) and serve immediately
