For me cucumber and mint is like peanut & jelly, peas & carrots, peaches & creams. It is just a pair that naturally works and that I love, but one that I usually reserve for cocktails. Cucumber mint moitos? I’m in! A cucumber mint gimlet? Get out of town! So a few mornings ago I decided to take my beloved pairing and try it out in a green smoothie paired with melon, green apple, and a bit of spinach. The result was surprisingly delicious and refreshing. It’s perfect to cool down on a hot day and is a happy addition to my summer smoothie rotation.

Blend everything until smooth. For older or less powerful blenders, microwave the apple for 2 minutes first.

If needed, add additional fruit or a drizzle of honey to add sweetness. This shouldn't be necessary unless the fruit isn't very ripe.
