End of Summer Smoothie

Saturday, September 22nd, 2012

“Put the lime in the cucumber…”.  Okay, not quite, but close.  And delicious.

I recently read a recipe for a cucumber lime smoothie and it took the top spot on my “must try” list.  And then, AMAZING!  We got both cucumbers and limes in our basket today!  I came home and immediately threw the ingredients into my blender.  I changed the recipe a little bit (it’s a compulsion) and I’m sure you could adapt this pretty easily to your preferences.  I love the simplicity of the ingredients, and it tastes light, refreshing, and happy.  Today might be the first day of fall, but it still feels like summer and I’m soaking in every minute of sunshine, in the sky or in a smoothie.
