Cucumber and Melon Smoothie recipe

This is a lovely, tropical flavoured summer smoothie that is lightened up with the addition of cucumber. Super refreshing and super tasty, this is the perfect summer drink.

Ingredients:

  • 1 cucumber
  • 350g melon
  • 500ml passion fruit juice
  • Mint to taste
  • Crushed ice

Directions:

  1. Peel, seed and chop the cucumber. Peel and cube the melon. Put into a blender with the passion fruit juice, mint and ice. Add more or less mint to taste depending on your preferences.

  2. Blend until smooth then serve with a sprig of mint on the top.

Use whichever melon you like apart from watermelon as it will just be too watery. This recipe serves two.
