Cucumber Water

While having a discussion with inherchucks about the deliciousness of cucumber water but the whole ‘not wanting to waste the cucumber’ part of that, I decided to come up with a list of ways you can use the cucumber so as to not throw it out or feel as if it was wasted.

Here is my non-exhaustive list:

1 Eat the cucumber slices as you drink the water.

2 Puree the cucumber before putting it in the water. Mix well before pouring.

3 After making cucumber water, take out the cucumber and add to a blender with honeydew melon and mint leaves, puree into a smoothie consistency and put in popcicle molds.

4 After making cucumber water, take out the cucumber and blend with watermelon, fennel and crushed ice for a light summer slushie.

5 Puree cucumber and add to mojito mix.

6 Drain cucumber and make tzaziki sauce.

7 Drain cucumber.  Slice avocado and cheese.  Stack avocado, cucumber, and cheese on a cracker.

8 Make a facial or skin toner.

9 Any combination, substitution, revision, or addition to the above.

Enjoy!

P.S.: Remember, cucumber is actually a fruit.
