February 1, 2017 | Dr. Madhu
½ cup cucumber
1 cup milk
1 table spoon raw sugar
1. Slice cucumbers lengthwise and remove seeds with a spoon.
Chop into chunks.
2. Puree milk, cucumber and raw sugar in a blender. Serve chilled. For an extra touch, garnish the glass with a cucumber slice.
Note: If you don't have a blender, grate the cucumber and mix vigorously with the milk. On the stovetop, make the raw sugar simple syrup and whisk it in. This method gives you a more rustic texture.
