Beat the Summer Heat

Cucumber coolers are refreshing drinks that are prepared with cucumber juice, mint and lemon. Perfect for relieving the summer heat, they're healthy and detoxifying, too.

I recommend using English cucumber because they have softer and smaller seeds, as well as a thinner skin, compared to Indian cucumber.
