Hello everyone!

Today I thought I’d share with you all this super easy Mexican cucumber snack that my family absolutely loves.

Do you like cucumbers?

They’re good but they can be a little bland by themselves right?

Well then you must try this snack!

I used to eat these all the time when I was pregnant with my first born.

It was so hot outside.

So the cucumbers were refreshing!

Cucumbers are awesome during the summer months.

Try them in this cucumber lime agua fresca.

All you need are cucumbers, lime and chile.

The chile is the one on the right.

If you want your cucumber with a little extra spice try it with the Valentina salsa.

I like to put it on mine but my kids don’t like it.

But it’s so good so you should definitely try it!

This is truly one of my favorite snacks and I don’t feel totally guilty for indulging in it!

If you like this snack you’ll definitely love a Mexican fruit salad.
