Cucumber-Lime In-The-Summertime Juice

Cucumber-Lime In-The-Summertime Juice


Why We Love This Recipe

This is a very cooling, easy-to-make refreshing summertime drink! You'll need a juicer. While ayurveda recommends cooking most vegetables, some — especially juicy vegetables, such as cucumber and lettuces — can be refreshing for lunch in the summer. But avoid them at night and in winter. They can aggravate Vata. 

Serves one glass


  • One cucumber 
  • ½ lime 
  • 2 teaspoons of organic honey 
  • Mint 
  • Pinch of salt (optional) 


  1. Juice cucumber and dilute with an equal part water. 
  2. Squeeze lime and mix with cucumber juice. Mix in the honey and salt, if desired. Garnish with mint
