All you’ll need to make this cucumber juice recipe is a blender.  You can strain the juice through a fine mesh for a more liquified drink, but if a little texture doesn’t bother you, then don’t strain it at all. We add apples to the mix for a little sweetness and celery for added nutritional benefits. 

Cucumber Juice Recipe

I have added apples and celery to this cucumber juice recipe, but you could just blend cucumbers alone if you prefer a pure cucumber juice. 

  • Cucumber.  Using English cucumber is preferred. If you use America, slicing, garden cucumbers, then be sure to remove the peel and the seeds before blending.
  • Apples. These add a little sweetness to the mix plus some added nutritional perks.
  • Celery. This provides added flavor plus nutritional and cleansing benefits.
  • Water. Just a little water helps to blend the ingredients a little easier.

I also like to blend cucumbers with watermelon (these two ingredients work so well together) or pineapple and ginger, depending on what I have on hand.

  • Blend cucumber with pineapple, fresh ginger and water

How to Make Cucumber Juice

We simply toss everything in a high-powered blender and blend until it all liquifies.  Alternatively, you can also simply put the chopped ingredients through the chute of a juicer to make juiced cucumber, just omit the water since it won’t be needed.

This juiced cucumber will last in the refrigerator up to 5 days.

  1. Blend. Add chopped cucumber, apple, celery and water in a blender. Place lid on blender and blend until the everything liquifies.
  2. Strain. Pour the mixture through a fine mesh strainer to remove any pieces of fiber from the ingredients.
  3. Enjoy. Add ice to glasses and pour Cucumber Juice over the ice and enjoy!

Types of Cucumbers

There are many varieties of cucumbers. Cucumbers that you eat fresh are typically classified as slicing cucumbers and other cucumbers with their thick and bumpy skins are most often used for pickling. English cucumbers are usually a little more expensive than garden cucumbers, but with English cucumbers you can consume the peel and tiny seeds and enjoy all the fiber and nutrients they provide.

  • American – The typical cucumbers found in the grocery stores are American cucumbers (also called slicing cucumber and garden cucumber). They have a thicker and darker green skin which is bitter tasting. They have a softer texture flesh with many large seeds that can give the flesh a slightly bitter taste. It’s best to peel them and scrape away the seeds before consuming.
  • EnglishEnglish cucumbers are also called hothouse, greenhouse, seedless, burpless and European cucumbers. They are long with dark green skins that have distinct ridges running lengthwise. They have tiny seeds so the  flesh (and skin) don’t taste bitter like the garden cucumber does. Cucumbers are a member of the cucurbitaceae family (gourd family), which includes zucchini, squash, melons and pumpkins. Botanically speaking, cucurbits are actually a type of fruit. Most cucurbits are herbaceous tendril-bearing vines that are commonly grown in warmer climates.
  • Persian – Persian cucumbers are similar to English hothouse cucumbers in taste and texture, but they’re about half the size. Both of them are crunchy, have thin skins, few seeds and they are mild tasting. Neither of them need to be peeled before consuming. 

Choosing the Best Cucumbers

When you’re choosing the best cucumbers to buy, always look for firm cucumbers that are free of soft spots, cracks or withered and shriveled ends. The skin should be a rich green rather than a pale green.
