No, the title of the recipe is not a typo nor am I going off the deep end, this recipe is for real and tastes great!  A woman I know brought it to a gathering we had been invited to and asked us to try it.  The woman’s daughter in law had made it for them recently and they all really liked it.  I was game, it was a really hot evening and she told us it would be very refreshing.

When I was given the glass with the drink, the aroma of the cucumber was the first thing I noticed but when I took a sip, it was actually the lime flavor I tasted.  Weird, I know.  I first tried the drink just as she gave it to us, but the second time I tried it she added a bit of sparkling water or club soda on top and that too was wonderful.  Either way if you give this drink a chance I think you will really enjoy it and so will your kids.  It can be a new and exciting way to use of some of the cucumbers you have from your garden right now.  Enjoy!!!!  For comments/questions email  ramona@lowfatdivablog.com

Cucumber Lime Aid

Juice of 6 limes
1 cucumber mashed
1 cup sugar ( or less depending on how sweet you want it)
cold water

Juice limes.  Peel and place cucumber in a food processor.   Add cucumber and sugar to  the lime juice.  Add enough cold water to make 2 quarts. Let the drink rest in frig or on counter to allow the  flavors to blend.  Using a small drink strainer over a glass, strain  the  cucumbers from the drink before serving.  Serve over ice.  You can top the drink with a bit of sparkling water or club soda.       Delish!
