Cucumbers: Providing both polyphenol antioxidants and vitamin K, drinking a form of cucumber water can help cleanse and even help cut your intake of added sugar. It's also a major thirst quencher, as cucumbers have a very high water content.
Limes: Rich in antioxidants and vitamin C, limes also provide calcium, iron, potassium and fiber. Like cucumbers, limes are a good cleansing ingredient that can help flush the body and help battle aging.
Multi Collagen Protein Cucumber Lime: Light in cucumber flavor with a kick of lime, this blend is a tasteful addition to many mocktails but especially the one below. This hydrolyzed collagen protein powder also mixes perfectly.
How to Make Cucumber Limeade
In a high speed blender, combine the cucumber, sparkling water, mint leaves, lime juice, Cucumber Lime Multi Collagen Protein powder and salt. Blend the mixture on high until totally liquified, about one minute.
Run the mixture through a fine mesh strainer into a large measuring cup or bowl. Be careful not to press too much on the pulp to avoid any bitterness from the skin. Stir to combine.
Pour minty cucumber limeade over ice. Optional to garnish with mint sprig, cucumber and/or lime wedge.
