Cool as a Cucumber

It has been the most beautiful sunny week! I could go on for ages about how much I love summer (I’ll spare you). One thing I always struggle with during the summer is staying hydrated. One of the most hydrating veggies is cucumber, so I decided to incorporate it into my juice this week. Which, by the way, was so good. I love eating and drinking pineapple, it’s so sweet and delicious and finally affordable now that it’s summer.


This juice wasn’t too sweet, too earthy, or too spicy. It can be risky trying out new recipes (like that time I juiced broccoli and it was so weird), but these ingredients worked really well.


Wash everything, remove the skin from the pineapple and the seeds from the apples. This made two!

  • 1/2 pineapple
  • 1 cucumber
  • 2 limes
  • 3 gala apples
  • chunk of ginger


Pineapple is packed with potassium and vitamin C, as well as small amounts of other vitamins and minerals. Cucumbers also have a ton of potassium, and high amounts of vitamin A. Because they have such a high water content they make a great ingredient to add when you need a little extra hydration. Overall this juice covers a lot of your bases: vitamin A and C, potassium, micronutrients, as well as antioxidants and anti-inflammatories. Can’t go wrong with a sweet healthy treat!
