    This looks like a really fun recipe to try, but what is the first ingredient? Is that 1/4 of a cucumber, pureed? Or 1/4 cup of cucumber puree?

    Hi Angela,
    That would be 1/4 cup cucumber puree. When I made the drink I pureed about 1/4 of a small cucumber and it was a little too much, but I added the extra to the drink and it was just fine.
