The recipe posted on the YouTube channel 'Something's Cooking With Alpa' may also serve as a worthy weight-loss potion. Cucumber is all water and nutrients; it is also super low in calories. Ginger and lemon help rev up your metabolism naturally. This recipe contains sugar, but you can always leave it out, if you are a calorie-watcher.
