No-Cal Cucumber Cooler

No-Cal Cucumber Cooler


  • 5 mint leaves, plus 1 for garnish
  • 4 medium cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and sliced
  • 1 small lime, sliced (save 1 slice for garnish)
  • 1 medium orange, sliced
  • 6 cups cold water


  1. Bruise 5 mint leaves with a dull object to release flavor. Place all ingredients in a large pitcher. Let steep in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes. (If left unstrained longer than 2 hours, drink will become bitter.) Pour through a strainer into tall glasses. Garnish with mint leaf or lime slice. May be refrigerated for up to 24 hours.
