Apple-Cucumber Refresher

Adults who consume apples, apple juice and applesauce are 27 percent less likely to be diagnosed with metabolic syndrome, a cluster of risk factors linked to chronic illnesses such as diabetes and cardiovascular disease. We paired the goodness of apples with cucumbers and basil in this refreshing drink

1 cup (250 mL) apple juice
1/4 cup (60 mL) unsweetened applesauce
1 English cucumber, peeled and chopped
Juice from half a lemon
2 basil leaves, torn
1 handful ice cubes
Blend all ingredients together.
