Cucumber Apple Refresher

Summarycucumber-apple-refresher

This juice is perfect for sipping on hot days or packing into a cooler along with tons of water to take to the beach. Combining the mildly sweet flavors of apple, cucumber, and celery with the tangy taste of lime, even the taste is refreshing on the tongue. Unlike many juices, this juice is thin and watery, so it will go down easily on a hot day and when very thirsty. This is much more appealing than a thick juice after splashing in the waves or pool for several hours.

Cucumbers and celery both have a high quantity of water and also add vital electrolytes that can help to hydrate faster and more thoroughly than plain water. Both have a lot of vitamin K, which is a necessary nutrient in blood coagulation and prevention of bone loss. All of the ingredients in this juice also have strong anti-inflammatory properties, which can be very helpful for preventing or easing a sun burn and for just helping to restore the body to its natural state following a day of high activity in the sun. This juice will store well for a few hours in a cooler and be a delicious and refreshing change from water. It will also help to restore the blood sugar level after all of the energy that is sapped by fun in the sun. Children and adults alike will delight in this refreshing juice. The preparation is also simple and fast, so it can be done easily before a day on the go.
