Serves: 8

Ingredients

4 large cucumbers, coarsely chopped

1 cup sugar

4 cups water

Method

1. Prepare all of the ingredients based on the instructions in the ingredients list.

2. Put all of the ingredients into the blender.

3. Add enough water to fill three-quarters of the blender.

4. Purée until smooth.
