Claire Wright from raisingsugarfreekids.com shares 3 simple ways to prepare cucumber that the whole family will enjoy.

A fruity, sweet refreshing drink for a warm day, this is a fun drink the kids can make themselves and enjoy without a sugar rush.

Method

Peel or slice the cucumber. Take the stalks off the strawberries and halve (if using frozen strawberries, leave whole or halve if they are soft enough to cut safely). Pick the mint leaves off the stalks. Place everything in a large jug and pour over the water, then add ice cubes, if using.

Kids in the Kitchen

Get the kids to make this recipe themselves – show them how to peel the cucumber carefully with a vegetable peeler, and let them chop soft ripe strawberries with a kid’s knife or butter knife. Have them pick the mint leaves off the stalks, and put everything in a large jug and pour over the water and add a few ice cubes.
