Orangember Juice

All week I have been developing creative ways to use cucumbers. My last idea resulted in a light and refreshing drink, one that will have you refilling your glass. My husband was doubtful (okay, more than doubtful) about the fruits and vegetable combination I wanted to use. But after he tasted the juice, he was pleasantly … More Orangember Juice
