This is a delightful summer drink, and a perfect accompaniment to a barbecue or picnic. It needs a juicer of some kind – a basic one is fine.

Ingredients

Quantity Ingredient
500g seedless white grapes
2 cucumbers
1 bottle prosecco

Method

  1. Pass the grapes and cucumbers through a juicer, and stir the juice well. Chill it in the fridge.
  2. Half-fill a champagne flute with the juice and top up with Prosecco.

Good for:

  • Skin health

Star ingredient:

  • Cucumbers are often thought of as somewhat dull in terms of nutritional value. However, they are one of the few decent dietary sources of silica, the mineral so important for smooth, healthy skin. In fact, it’s silica that’s responsible for the shiny skin on a cucumber. They also contain some interesting anti-inflammatory flavonoid compounds, too.
