Cucumber Pear Juice is one of the most refreshing and sweet green juices of all time! This juice will hydrate you while satiating your sweet tooth. In fact, you may even gulp it down. Just 3 simple ingredients.
Light, breezy, soft, crisp and a delight. An odd combo and who would have thought to pair the two but I think I am in love with this flavor combo and so will you. A whole lot of cucumber and a small amount of very ripe pear becomes the perfect match. Pear is so sweet when ripe that a little goes a LONG way. When the pear is juiced it's SWEETER if you can believe.
So here's what happened to me: I have chronic food sensitivities and a lot of them. And I am often asked, "what do you eat?" And I often say "well, I'm a food blogger". Meaning I get really creative. I find ways to make things work and I experiment OFTEN with different flavor profiles.
The mindset change is: If you cannot have said food or said 40 foods, you are going to have to find other foods that work for you. You are going to have to get creative and be experimental. This is how you nourish yourself. And that is how I created this beautiful pear and cucumber combo. I have to tell you I'm so glad I did! I'd serve it to company in a heartbeat.
Had I not had food sensitivities I never would have thought to "PEAR" the two together (hahaha).
It's such a light juice, even green juice beginners will adore it. So it's another way to look at your food sensitivities with a different mindset. If you didn't have celiac, gluten sensitivity, allergies or food sensitivities you would have never had NEEDED to experiment with other flavors, and a wide variety and a rotating palate are what's best for our beautiful bods.
I adore this juice with brunch or as an afternoon hydrating pick me up. Always on the rocks with a straw. Ooh! Tastes so good! Did you know that Cucumber is the star number here? Organic cumbers are coming at you with all the hydration and hair mineral Silica. Silica is a premium mineral for hair growth and hair health so don't forget to eat your cucumbers! And get this! Sometimes when you think you are hungry, or tired you are actually thirsty. So let this juice be your cure.

I made my juices in a high-speed blender like a Vitamix or Nutribullet and then use a nut milk bag to strain the mixture. I've had juicers, they are large and messy, hard to clean. I prefer the simple extra step of using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth, and this is actually my favorite method.
Cucumber Pear Juice
- high-speed blender
- 1 cup cucumber with skin, packed and chopped
- ⅓ cup ripe pear packed, peeled
- ¾ cup water filtered

- In a high-speed blender add all the ingredients. Blast on high till well blended.
- Using a nut milk bag or cheesecloth strain the juice mixture over a large bowl filled with the 2 cups of ice. Discard pulp. Serve juice in a cup over ice with a straw.
