Cucumber drink with fresh cucumber

Watermelon Cucumber Lime Mint Smoothie

Add the following to a blender (A high speed blender is a game changer.  My life has not been the same since investing in a Vitamix.  Another well known option is a Blendtec.  You can find further information here:  Vitamix or Blendtec)
  • 1 cup ice
  • 1 1/2 cups cubed watermelon
  • 1 1/2 cups chopped cucumber (peeled if non-organic)
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Handful of mint
  • 1 tablespoon honey (raw local is best)
Blend until smooth.  If it is still chunky, you can strain through a mesh colander.
