Tangy Cucumber Mint Juice


When Williams-Sonoma reached out and asked if I wanted to participate in their "Juices That Bite Back" theme for their Juice Week, I immediately said yes! Since my favorite combination (this cucumber + basil juice found HERE) is so simple I figured the best thing to do was to keep my idea similar but switch up a few ingredients. This time I swapped mint for basil, removed the apple, and added a little kick via a green pepper to the juice to give it a tangy taste. Since I am a spice/tangy whimp, I only added a little bit of the pepper but for those who are more adventurous you can add as much as you want!

Ingredients:
1 English Cucumber, diced
1 Lime
1 Green Anaheim Chile Pepper* 
Handful of mint leaves
1/2 Cup of water

To Make:
Dice up your cucumber, pepper, and mint leaves
Add ingredients + water to juicer (check out some of Williams-Sonoma's juicer options HERE)
Blender together and add lime juice
Blend until all ingredients are pressed 

*I used about a 1/3 of the pepper in my drink

*While I worked with Williams-Sonoma on this post, I was not compensated in any way and all recipes and opinions are my own.
