After having thoroughly washed the cucumber , remove the ends and cut it into slices. Put them in a container with water and leave them to rest for a few in the refrigerator. After the time, the drink is ready to be drunk.

The ideal is to consume it within the day and prepare it fresh the next day. In this way the flavor will remain pleasant and the properties will not be lost.

To make it more refreshing and perfect for the summer season , you can drink it with the addition of a few pieces of ginger or a few mint leaves. This way you can have something tasty to drink during the day without the negative effects of sugary drinks and with all the benefits of cucumber.
