At Mourne Manor Organics we love our delicious Organic cucumbers in with our salads but this summer we have got even more creative with different ways to eat cucumber and we want to share some of these with you!
Cucumbers are very nutritionally rich and packed full of with many health boosting antioxidants vitamins and minerals “Cucumbers are a valuable source of conventional antioxidant nutrients including vitamin C, beta-carotene, and manganese.”
First of all, instead of cutting them into circles why not try using a peeler and make ribbon like strips of them to put in salads and even a jug of water - it creates a wonderful flavour to the water, light and fresh!
If you have a juicer you can make a nutritious and delicious juice with:
Half a cucumber,
Half a cup of mint
A cup of spinach
Or if you have a blender you can make a smoothie:
Half of a cucumber
1 cup of spinach
Cup of mint
2 cored apples
1 cup of water or coconut water
A squeeze of lime
We would love to know how you are creative with your Organic Fruit and Vegetables!
