Pineapple, Persian cucumbers, lemon juice, and mint blended with ice and light agave syrup is a sweet, refreshing treat. Keep the kids cool from the summer heat with this slushy drink, or for an adults-only version, add vodka or light rum to start your summer patio party off right.
RECIPE: Pineapple, Cucumber and Mint Slush
Yields two servings
Two cups chopped pineapple, frozen
Three small Persian cucumbers
Juice of one lemon
One cup of ice, or more to taste
One spring of mint
Light agave syrup or honey, to taste to sweeten
Optional: Add a splash of vodka or light rum to make this an adults-only slush drink!
Chop two cups of pineapple into tidbits and freeze for at least an hour.
Wash the Persian cucumbers and remove the stem and ends. Cut them each into a few pieces to make it easier for the blender to chop up.
Add frozen pineapple and Persian cucumbers to the blender and blend until coarsely chopped.
Add lemon juice, ice and mint and blend again until smooth.
Stir in light agave syrup or honey to taste to sweeten, and serve.
