The straining is a critical-control-point - doing it right is what makes these cubes look smooth and gem-like.
Not peeling the cucumber is also key for getting that glowing green color
You can make these with the most basic blender and the most basic ice-cube trays, but you do need a fine strainer or a nut-milk bag for these cubes to be smooth and look like they do above.
Have I mentioned the straining part yet? When these cubes melt in your drink of choice... if you want it "debris-free", make sure you take the time to strain - don't push the liquid through the strainer, let it happen and fewer small solids will come along for the ride.
