Kick your ‘nimbu paani’ up a notch! This concoction is delightfully zesty, refreshing and cooling. The health benefits are numerous as well – lots of Vitamin C from the lemon and antioxidants from the matcha! Perfect for these sweltering days, when you can’t bear the thought of hotter forms of caffeine.
Serves: 4 |Prep Time: 15 mins
- 2 cucumbers, chopped
- 1 cup mint leaves
- 2 cups cold water
- 3/4 cup fresh lemon juice
- 1/4 cup agave nectar or honey
- 2 tablespoons matcha green tea powder
- 1 cup ice (plus more for serving)
Lightly puree the cucumber and mint leaves in a blender (we like some chunky bits in out drink! If you don’t, go ahead and make it a smooth puree).
In a large pitcher, combine the water, lemon juice, agave/honey, and matcha powder. Blend well until all ingredients are fully combined.
Add the cucumber-mint puree and blend well again.
Serve in ice-filled glasses, with a garnish of fresh mint and cucumber!
