This post was supposed to be a soup recipe but the weather changed here is San Diego. The soup recipe also had pears from Stemilt Growers in it but we went from cold and rainy to sunny and warm. I couldn’t bring myself to cook soup on such a nice day. I needed something cold and refreshing like this Cucumber Pear Juice.
I still love my Breville juicer that I got last year. If you’re got enough room to store a juicer in your home, then I highly recommend them. I enjoy fresh vegetable juices more than I thought I would. I always add a little bit of fruit or something on the sweet side like carrots to make the juice slightly more interesting. Fresh juice is so much better for you than what you buy in the stores. I’d rather drink juice where I know it’s 100% from fruit and vegetables not chemicals or sugar. If you like making your own juice try my Sweet Beet Juice or Fruity Green Juice recipes as well.
Cucumber Pear Juice
- 1 bunch of Mint
- 1 English Cucumber or 2-3 small Persian Cucumbers, roughly chopped
- 2 Pears roughly chopped
- Using a juicer, run all the ingredients through the machine.
- Stir the juice to combine before pouring over two ice filled glasses.
