Cucumber Mint Mango Drink is Refreshing and Hydrating

This cucumber mango drink is so hydrating for hot summer days. Of course, it is super tasty and healthy too. It uses an unripe mango.

Thank you to my friend Kirti who I met on Care2 in 2004 for contributing this delicious recipe.

“What with mom being unwell and concerns about her hydration quotient being quite high, I have taken recourse to create light and refreshing summer juices for her. Today, it was the turn of the cucumber-mint-mango medley. Light, lovely green in color, not too sour.” ~ Kirti Kapoor

Cucumber Mint Mango Drink Recipe

Ingredients:

1 Cucumber medium size, washed, peeled and diced/cubed

1 small unripe, peeled, and sliced Mango

Mint leaves: 5-7, washed (or mint paste: 1tsp)

Curry Patta (sweet neem) leaves: 4-5 washed

1/4 tsp Honey

1/2 cup Cold water

Salt to taste

Directions:

  1. Wash all the above ingredients, peel, dice whatever is required; combine in a mixer or blender jar (if your blender jar has a mesh/pulp filter, use it pleases)
  2. Blend/pulp at medium speeds for about 2min, then at high speed for another 2min.  Strain using the blender’s pulp filter or strainer, into a jug or tall glass; place in the refrigerator to chill for about an hour.
  3. Discard pulp.
  4. Serve cold and enjoy your delicious ‘Cucumber Mint Mango Drink’.

The above quantity makes one standard 200 ml serving.

My mom is elderly, so I did not retain the pulp if desired a little bit of the pulp can be added to bulk the juice up.
