Cucumber Mint Cooler
Cucumber Mint Cooler is a refreshing blend of cucumber, sugar (or other sweetener of choice), lime juice, ice, water, and mint leaves.
Cucumber, mint and lime are great to quench ourselves especially in summer. Cucumber has a high-water content and help relieve dehydration and full of antioxidants. Mint is cooling, refreshing, zingy and delightful and adds flavour and boost the medicinal properties of the drink. Mint has immensely powerful antioxidant properties and is excellent to manage blood sugar levels and treat skin conditions. Sugar is added to the cooler to make it sweet and lemon juice and black salt add a little twist of tangy and salty taste to it.
So, I guess technically this Cucumber Mint Cooler is a summer drink. However, I feel it is a ‘all year round’ drink. It is thirst-quenching, minty, and sweet and sour and packed with abundance of healthy nutrition. A simple light and refreshing drink!
1 cup chopped cucumber
6-7 mint leaves
Juice of 1 lime
1 teaspoon black salt
1 teaspoon sugar
4-5 ice cubes
¼ cup water
Blend the cucumber and mint leaves to a smooth fine puree.
In a bowl, strain the puree by adding water. Discard the pulp.

Add ice cubes in a glass and pour the mint and cucumber cooler and serve cold!
