YES! We all love drinking and trying out new shake flavors and opting on a green diet is nothing new. Cucumber shake is one of those flavors that are quickly turning into a fad especially at “organic farm-to-table” restaurant concepts. With prices ranging from P95 to P120 per glass, and even higher.

CUCUMBER – You will get about 4 percent of your daily potassium, 3 percent of your daily fiber and 4 percent of your daily vitamin C. They also “provide small amounts of vitamin K, vitamin C, magnesium, potassium, manganese and vitamin A,” Ware said. source: http://www.livescience.com
SPINACH is also an excellent source of vitamin K, vitamin A, vitamin C and folate as well as being a good source of manganese, magnesium, iron and vitamin B2. Vitamin K is important for maintaining bone health and it is difficult to find vegetables richer in vitamin K than spinach. Accdg to http://www.bbcgoodfood.com

This is my own home-made recipe which I just mix and tried. A faith healer suggested making a shake out of Spinach, camote tops and other green leafy vegetable (all raw) but I opted for cucumber to be added which has an authentic refreshing taste. Oooppps, Cucumber is also diuretic, so it’s best to drink the shake when you needed to be hydrated.
Budget for this shake 👇
- Cucumber P8.50 (I only used half of the 1pc which I bought for P17)
- Spinach P3 (I bought worth P6, 3 stalks, but only used half of it)
Total budget P11.50!
I made a total of 3 standard glasses of shake for this recipe.
