Cucumber Smoothie

Summer is right around the corner and the weather is finally getting nice for more then one day at a a time. I found this smoothie in the Food Network Magazine when I was trying to eat only fresh fruits and veggies for a few days. Its very refreshing and perfect for an after workout snack or a day spent in the sun.

Adapted from Food Network Magazine 50 Smoothie Insert

2 medium seedless cucumber
1 Kiwi
1 cup of ice
1 lime
1/2 cup of water

Peel the cucumber and cut into chunks. Scoop kiwi out of it's skin. Put into Blender. Add the juice of one lime, ice, and water to the blender. Blend until there are no ice chunks left. Feel free to change the ice amount depending on how you like it. More ice makes it slushy and less makes it more liquid. Also if you want it sweeter exchange the kiwi out for 4 tablespoons of honey.

Enjoy Kath!
