It’s. So. Humid. Last night I went out for a short run, and felt like I was running through a wool blanket. TOO HOT. Went out for drinks and delicious food after the run, and had a few drinks. All of this has added up to drinking water like a fish today. Can’t get enough!
Today’s smoothie is a variation of “The Spa” from Irv and Shelly’s Fresh Picks.
The Spa Smoothie
1 medium peeled cucumber, 0PPs
1 cup chopped melon, 0PPs
1 ripe banana, 0PPs
1 cup unsweetened almond milk 1PPs
2-3 ice cubs 0PPs
I made a few adjustments to the recipe, which calls for cucumber, melon and mint. I didn’t have any mint, regrettably. I ended up chopping up the melon and cucumber on Sunday and freezing them because the melon was almost too ripe. I set them out to thaw while I had my oats, so they were on the soft-ish side, but still icy.
The consistency of this, because it was frozen, was a little more slushy than creamy. I added the banana to get some more sweetness. I think that mint and a little honey would have been good added in here too, but all in all, it was incredibly refreshing and I really liked it!
