Fresh Orange Lime Cucumber Juicing Recipe – a delicious dessert juice for your juice fast.Jump to Recipe
I’m back with the second juice for my juice fast restart series. This one is a refreshing orange, lime and cucumber cooler. It’s the perfect juice fast recipe when you need something more palatable after drinking so many vegetable heavy juices. It’s sweet and sour and keeps you on track with your juice cleanse.
This Orange Lime Cucumber Juicing Recipe is very simple; oranges, limes, lemon and cucumber with some added ginger and mint leaves for taste. This is also a great summer refresher, keeps you drinking fresh juice without additives and best of all – it keeps you cool! The cucumber gives you enough hydration to carry you through the sweltering heat!

A juice cleanse isn’t the easiest thing to do. You are bound to get tired of drinking the same green or vegetable juices over and over again. Therefore, it’s super important to switch around your fruits and veg. Make sure you are getting as much of every type of fruit and veg you can possibly find (and that can be juiced easily). You must also make sure you’re not just downing vegetable juices but also incorporating “dessert” juices; basically, juices that are sweeter and refresh your palate to keep going. I found that this helped me so much which is why I created some dessert juices that you can find on my blog.
When going on a juice fast, make sure to really ask yourself questions like; why are you going on a juice fast? What do you hope to achieve after the fast? What can you let go of, clean up, restart or renew in your life (mentally, environmentally, socially etc)? Answer these as truthfully as possible and as you stick to drinking your juices every day, work on making sure your questions are being answered and acted upon.
Continue on your juice fast strong with this Orange Lime Cucumber Juicing recipe.
Delicious dessert juice filled with oranges, limes, lemons and cucumber to keep you refreshed and hydrated.
- 2 oranges
- 2 lemons
- 2 limes
- 1 large cucumber
- 7-8 mint leaves (as many as you like)
- 1 knuckle of ginger
Run all your fruit and veg through your juicer. Alternate between soft and harder fruits and vegetables so that they run through your juicer smoothly and you get the most yield.
I added about 2 carrots to this to allow the fruit to run through my juicer easily and make sure I was getting the most out of my juices. This produced a little over 750ml of juice for me
