Cucumber Mint Smoothie

It is operation use up two dozen cucumbers week. Since my husband is out of town and is my garbage disposal, this has been a rather daunting task. First it was salad, then pickles, then give some to my neighbor/mom and this morning it led me to this smoothie. Inspiration for this smoothie came from getting a bunch of mint in our CSA share this week. At first I was thinking of making a chocolate mint smoothie, but since it is summer and I like green smoothies better I went with with a “mojito” remake. As I was drinking this bomb-tastic (e.g. delicious) smoothie all I could think about was, “Boy, this would be good as a summer cocktail”! 

Cucumber Mint Smoothie
Serves 2
This smoothie reminds of summer and a mojito because of the fresh cucumber and mint. The drink is delicious as is, but would also work well as a cocktail by adding your favorite mixer.
