Cucumber Lime Smoothie

This is a wonderful recipe that my friend shared with me. It's a delicious green smoothie recipes--a wonderfully refreshing drink for a warm summer day or night. My husband and I enjoyed it after a evening walk. I preferred to not have it be very sweet. You can make it to your taste preference. It makes a great "No Cook Meal" for our Recipe Redux this month.

Enjoy a wonderful summer!

Ingredients: about 4 servings depending on serving sizes
1 English cucumber washed and chopped (leave peel on)
juice from 4 limes
1 to 1 1/2 T honey or other sweetener
16 ice cubes

1. Place all the ingredients in the blender and blend until smooth.  
2. Pour into desired glasses and serve immediately for best results. Store leftovers in the fridge.


  1. I did a cucumber avocado soup and now I'm thinking I could just add a touch of honey and make it a smoothie. Though I'm starting with your recipe because it sounds easier and just as delish.

    1. Great minds think alike. :) Your soup looks fantastic.

  5. Looks very refreshing! I can see adding some yogurt for a morning smoothie. Thanks!
