Let's dive into the recipe and learn how to create this delightful cucumber slushy!


Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers (or 3 to 4 mini seedless), peeled and seeds removed.

  • Juice of 1-2 lemons (you can use ½ to 1 tbsp concentrated lemon juice)

  • 1 tablespoon Tajin seasoning

  • ½ tbsp Powdered Stevia (optional)

  • 1/4 cup I Love Chamoy Sugar-Free Chamoy

  • Fresh mint leaves, for garnish (optional)

Directions


Step 1: Prepare the Cucumbers

Start by peeling the cucumbers and removing the seeds. Cut them into smaller pieces for easier blending. Place in a freezer-safe bag and place in the freezer for at least 3-4 hrs.


Step 2: Blend the Ingredients

In a blender, combine the frozen sliced cucumbers and lemon juice, and sweetener (optional). Blend until you achieve a smooth consistency.


Step 3: Add Water and Blend (If necessary)

Next, add the water to the blender and blend until the mixture becomes your desired consistency and is well combined.


Step 4: Tajin Rim, Chamoy, Serve and Garnish

Use a sliced lemon and go around the rim of your glass so your tajin will stick, and then turn your glass over into your tajin to create your rim. Coat the inside of the glass with your sugar-free chamoy, and pour the cucumber slushy into serving glasses. If desired, garnish each glass with a sprig of fresh mint leaves for a pop of color and added freshness.


Step 5: Enjoy!

Serve immediately and enjoy your refreshing cucumber slushy! Sip slowly and savor the unique combination of cool cucumber, zesty lemon, spicy Tajin, and the subtle sweetness of I Love Chamoy's sugar-free chamoy.


Optional Tips and Variations:

  • For an extra kick, add a pinch of cayenne pepper or a few drops of hot sauce

  • Feel free to experiment with different variations of Tajin seasoning, such as mango-flavored Tajin, to give your slushy a fruity twist.

  • If you prefer a sweeter slushy, you can add a natural low-calorie sweetener, such as stevia or monk fruit.

  • You can even add some LMNT powder to mix up the flavor!


With this simple and refreshing cucumber slushy recipe, you can enjoy a delightful drink that combines the coolness of cucumbers, the tanginess of lemon juice, the zing of Tajin, and the sweetness of I Love Chamoy's sugar-free chamoy.
