Happy First Day of Spring … or Summer for my fellow Texans!!! (:
With temperatures heating up, I am always on the look out for a refreshing way to cool down … And what better way than with a smoothie? I recently found a recipe from Food Network for a Spa Cucumber Smoothie and decided to give it a try. Because who does not love a spa day or at least something reminiscent of one!?
Here is what you will need:
- 2 cucumber, peeled and seeded
- 1 cup of ice
- 1/2 cup of water
- Juice of 1 lime
- 2-4 tablespoons of honey, sugar or Agave nectar
Simply blend until smooth and enjoy! … I ended up using 1/2 of an extremely large cucumber (because I was feeling a bit lazy, I did not seed mine) and 2 tablespoons of honey. You can see from the picture that it made up a good sized glass full of 128 calorie yummy-ness! I cannot wait to enjoy this poolside in the coming months!
If you are not a fan of cucumbers, this recipe would be great with watermelon too!
