Trust me no one can have just one for sure 🙂 Cucumber & mint is an awesome combination & it’s a treasure of health benefits.

It is an herb that has been used for hundreds of years for its remarkable medicinal properties.It also helps in digestion ,cures depression and Fatigue & Skin Care and Pimples because of its antiseptic and anti-pruritic nature.

If you want to to make the liquid thin , you can add extra 2-3 cups of water, but I like little thick cucumber juice so I prefer not adding any extra water then 1 cup. 1 cucumber yields 2 small glass of the drink.
Enjoy this health drink & stay healthy 🙂
