Recipe: Cucumber, nopal and lemon juice

  1. We start by cutting the cucumber in half and peeling the nopal to remove its layer of spines, as we’re only interested in its interior.
  2. Then, we’re going to extract the juice from the lemon by cutting it in half and using the citrus squeezer or by hand.
  3. Finally, blend all the ingredients to the desired consistency and serve the drink.

Note: If you use a juicer, you don’t need to include water. On the other hand, remember that this juice and most of the ones we share aren’t substitutes for meals.
