View Full Version : Cucumber Juice
12-03-2007, 02:35 PM
I just wanted to post that I like cucumber juice now! Is that not crazy? I hated it the first few times I tried it. I am drinking it straight on the rocks (ice) with a little sea salt. Sometimes I put it in a fancy glass and rim the glass with olive oil and rub the edge in sea salt. It looks like a really green margarita. When I am low on my leafy green intake for the day I add some Romaine or Spinich.

I will have to re-try this because I sure did not care for cucumber in juice form--adore using slices for all my spreads and pates. Since there are so many health benefits from this juice, maybe it will grow on me.

YAY! My new fave! I like it with a tiny bit of lemon and an apple juiced.
In a martini glass with ice. YUM-O!

Yeah it's funny the fancy glass makes it taste better. :D

Okay, I'm digging out my fancy glasses to give this a new go. The benefits of nicer skin, hair and nails is enticement alone.
Thank you for the great thread.

YUMMY! I agree! Went to the juice bar this AM because I was running late and needed some cuc juice for the day, and he was out of cucumbers. Ugh! Very disappointing. I am going to get more tonight! :)

Thanks for the heads up. I use it in my green juice in the mornings but I have not tried it alone. I will try it tonight, in a fancy glass, with a little sea salt around the rim. It might add a little spice to my night ;)

I think if you don't use the seasalt it taste bland. Also try to choose the best cucumbers. I like the smaller dark green ones. I have noticed that the ripeness/freshness of the fruit or veggie in is so important when making anything raw. I am also buying all organic if I can find it and it is not outrageously over priced.

Yes - fancy glasses and best china makes this food journey a blast
And cucumber juice is excellent with dash of lime juice, salt, pepper and very cold! I wonder if the tiny paper umbrella and a slice of lemon would make it even better:)

Do you guys peel the cucumber when you juice it?

I prefer the long English cucumbers to the standard cucumber found in the store. The former is more bitter tasting. I also like to combine with celery and a green apple (less sugar).
And yes, I peel the cucumber if it is non-organic. They are heavily waxed. Otherwise, the outer skin is excellent for your skin!
