Cucumber lemonade? Why not! Especially with fresh basil leaves added in. It is a short drink to make and consists of a few simple steps. Maybe, squeezing all the lemons is the most challenging part. But freshly squeezed lemon juice is much sounder than anything you could buy!Β 

All ingredients in the lemonade are a trustworthy source of vitamins.Β 

Cucumber. You'll get 14% to 19% of the vitamin K you need for the day in just a single cup of cucumber slices. You'll also get vitamins B and C and minerals like copper, phosphorus, potassium, and magnesium. Also, it has little sugar that will help you lose weight effectively.Β 

Lemon. It's not a secret that it's packed with vitamin C. The yellow citrus is good for enhancing immune function and protection against various diseases.Β 

Mint is also a rich source of antioxidants, and vitamin A. Antioxidants help protect your body from oxidative stress, a type of damage to cells caused by free radicals.

Basil contains many vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants such as lutein, zeaxanthin, beta-carotene, and beta-cryptoxanthin. These microelements eliminate the risk for various health conditions, including cancer, heart disease, arthritis, and diabetes.

So, you see, only health benefits. Let's try preparing it right now!

Weight Loss Tips

  • Try to take as few calories from your drinks as possible. It is effortless to consume way too many calories with your frappuccino with syrups for cocktails; these calories won't keep you full or satiated for long.

  • Always choose "no sugar" or "zero calories" fizzy drinks.

  • Choose low-calorie sweeteners instead of sugar if you like your drink sweet.
