Cucumber Mint Cooler

Cucumber mint cooler1

Hot, hotter and hottest are the 3 seasons in Chennai :( We really don't seem to have much of winter experience. Hence a body coolant is never out of season.

I have been exhaustively shopping this season and I rejuvenate myself with such simple yet interesting drinks everyday.

Cucumber mint cooler3

Ingredients:

Cucumber - 1
Mint leaves - 20
Tender coconut - 1
Salt - for taste
Jal-jeera powder - a pinch

Cucumber mint cooler

Method:

Clean and wash the mint leaves. Make a puree of it by adding some water. Filter it in a fine sieve and collect the extract.

Peel and de-seed the cucumber. Grind it in the mixie and filter to get clear cucumber juice.

Break open the tender coconut and collect the water. Scoop and chop the tender coconut and reserve it aside.

Mix half a cup of tender coconut water with half a cup of cucumber juice. Add two tsp of mint extract, salt and a pinch of jal-jeera powder and stir well.

Top it with ice cubes and chopped tender coconut and serve chill :)
