KN, p.239 “Cucumber Slushies”

 

Our delightful neighbors had a bumper crop of cucumbers and gave us a dozen of the seedless kind. We had to come up with a way to use them quickly, because as far as we knew, cucumbers don’t freeze well. We had cucumber salads, cucumber slices on our sandwiches, and then we made cucumber slushies. The slushies are super easy to make and are a healthy, refreshing summer beverage. We added watermelon for one version. Sooo good. Here’s what we came up with for the recipes. We’ve had a week of slushies and nobody has keeled over yet.

 

But then, nobody has ever died in the Kerrian Kitchen. Honest.  😉
