For some reason the cucumber and melon scent combo totally flashes me back to high school. Was it because the Bath and Body Works scent was wildly popular in my group of girls? Perhaps. Do I still buy things that smell like cucumber or melon or both when I can? I might…
Either way this smoothie is refreshing, sweet and delectable. So perfect for a summer afternoon pick-me-up!! If you are having a BBQ or get together this would be a lovely drink to serve, you could even fancy it up with a little sparkling water, which would be wonderful in here!!
Health highlight of cucumbers: Despite being one of the most farmed veggie in the world (it’s #4) there haven’t been a lot of studies done on cucumbers for their nutritional and medicinal properties. What we do know is that cucumbers have strong antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Which is awesome news since these are vitally important to long term health and wellness. We also know that the combination of nutrients in cucumbers has been shown to prevent cancer.
