Melon, mint and cucumber smoothie


Continuing the green theme… Sweltering through the heat in London last week, I was berating myself for not having filled up the fridge with anything smoothie-appropriate. Too hot and tired to think strategically about food, I just wanted to whizz up something easy and refreshing.

Then I spied a leftover cucumber from our veg box, and found the last remaining ripe and juicy melon in our local shop. Add some young mint from the garden and I built myself a glass full of green, summery goodness.

Sometimes these things are so simple you almost look past them for something more complicated.

A lesson to remember.

Makes 2 glasses


1 cucumber

1/2 ripe melon

A handful of mint

Blend, cool and drink.
