Apple Cucumber Juice Recipe
Cucumbers are a great juice vegetable because they are 96% water. They provide important nutrients to the skin while hydrating it. Cucumbers' astringent characteristics take out debris, clear pores, and reduce puffiness around the eyes when applied externally. They are high in silica, which promotes healthy hair, nails, and skin.
Apples are high in beta carotene, and apple peels are especially high in polyphenols, which provide antioxidant and anti-inflammatory protection to help skin age more slowly.
- 2 medium cucumbers
- 1 large apple
- 1 lime
All fruits and vegetables should be washed. If the skin is organic, leave it on. If not organic, lightly peel or wash with a fruit veggie wash to remove pesticides.
First, juice the cucumber, then the apple, and finally the lime.
Enjoy your refreshing apple cucumber juice straight up or over ice!
