Normally cucumber drink made of raw cucumber blended in mixie what actually makes it thick and more greener. But it is smooth and very light drink. Cucumber pieces are boiled in water and then remove those pieces and residual cucumber flavored boiled water with sugar is kept inside the freezer for one hour and add lemon juice and blend to make it consistent. Add crushed ice in glasses and pour cucumber lemonade into glasses and serve.
