Cucumber Mint Sour

A Raw Cocktail for Vibrant Health

Cucumbers are a great source of silica and have high water content which makes for fabulous, glowing skin.  Silica is also beneficial for connective tissue which means it can keep that glowing skin tight, firm and up where it should be.  They also contain vitamin C and cafeic acid that soothe skin and reduce swelling, so cover your eyes with the garnish slices if you tied one on last night.

2 large cucumbers, peeled & quartered
10 mint leaves
4 tablespoons of fresh squeezed lime juice
2 cups water
2 cups ice
1 tablespoon agave nectar
dash of sea salt

Put cucumbers, mint and lime juice in the VitaMix on high until well blended. Put ice, agave, and a dash of salt in a pitcher. Pour cucumber mixture through a fine mesh sieve into the pitcher. Stir well to combine and chill. Serve immediately.
