Cucumbers have been a source of nutrition for thousands of years. Native Americans, Ancient Romans, and 17th century physicians all believed in the hydrating and amazing health benefits of cucumbers.

This super veggie is a staple in the juicing community because it contains high amounts of phytonutrients, and has a neutral flavor profile making it easy to add to almost any juice recipe. If you’ve been experimenting with new recipes either at home or in your business, you’ve come to the right place!

Ingredients

  • cucumber
    10 oz
    1 1/4 cucumber
  • green apple
    7.7 oz
    1 1/4 medium apple
  • kale
    3 oz
    1 1/3 cups chopped kale
  • lemon
    1.2 oz
    1/3 medium lemon

Directions

  1. Wash and weigh the produce.

Pro Tips

  • When trying to source the best cucumbers for juicing, search for medium-to-large cucumbers that are firm without any soft spots or blemishes.

  • Your cucumbers should be dark green with minimal to no yellow spots – these spots tend to develop once the cucumber becomes overly ripe. If your cucumbers have wax on the outside, make sure to properly remove the wax with a safe veggie wash.

  • Leave the stems on the kale – they typically contain a lot of flavor and juice. Coming from the farm, kale will have dirt on the leaves and needs to be thoroughly washed.
