Spiced Cucumber & Apple Juice Booster
Some people call them restorative drinks, others deem them wellness beverages. Whatever the name, the drinks are packed with flavor and good for you, too. They are meant to be sipped and enjoyed slowly (versus wellness shots or protein drinks knocked back on the way out the door).
While you can purchase ready-made concoctions at the grocery store, nothing beats a fresh, homemade drink. Try this recipe from McCormick, or two other healthy drinks: Pineapple Mocktail and Ginger, Turmeric & Beet Elixir.
- 4 clementines, divided
- 3 cups coarsely chopped seedless cucumber, plus additional slices for garnish
- 2 cups coarsely chopped Granny Smith apple
- ¼ teaspoon red pepper, ground
- 1 cup ice cubes
Juice two of the clementines, then peel the remaining two. Place juice and peeled clementines in a blender.
Add the cucumber, apple, ground red pepper and ice cubes to the blender. Cover and blend on high speed until pureed.
Pour into beverage glasses. Garnish with cucumber slices, if desired.
