[RECIPE] Refreshing Cucumber Mint Green Tea Slushie Drink


The zesty lemon, refreshing cucumber, and cool mint makes this green tea slushie a satisfying drink. It's healthy and good for the tummy.

I recreated the refreshment I enjoyed having in one of the Asian restaurants here in Metro Cebu. The best thing about recreating them is that I have total control of how much I can add per ingredient to make the drink even richer.

Mint has enzymes that aids digestion, thus helping you lose weight.
