Cucumber Mint Lemonade


  • 1 large cucumber, peeled and sliced

    • In a blender, combine the cucumber slices and fresh mint leaves. Blend until you get a smooth puree.

    • For a smoother texture, strain the cucumber-mint puree using a fine mesh sieve or cheesecloth to separate the liquid from any solids.

Mix Lemonade:

    • Squeeze enough lemons to obtain 1 cup of fresh lemon juice. Adjust the quantity based on your taste preferences.
  2. Combine Ingredients:
    • In a large pitcher, combine the cucumber-mint puree, fresh lemon juice, keto-friendly sweetener, and cold water. Stir well to dissolve the sweetener.

Chill and Serve:

  1. Refrigerate:
    • Place the pitcher in the refrigerator to chill the cucumber mint lemonade for at least 1-2 hours.

    • When ready to serve, add ice cubes to the pitcher for an extra refreshing experience.
