Who needs the heat of Summer to enjoy a cooling smoothie on any day? Fall has arrived, but a tad bit late here in Texas and the leaves have not changed colors yet but there is definitely a hint of chill in the air. And I made a cool cucumber smoothie to sit down and sip on a cold afternoon over the weekend:) This cucumber smoothie is a super-refreshing and cooling, is a perfect blend of flavor and texture with a hint of tartness from the lemon juice. It is not like the yogurt sauce aka the "raita" by any means:) Go give it a try and enjoy!
Lemon juice-2 tsps
Mint leaves-a handful
Crushed Black Pepper-1 tsp
1. Blend all ingredients until soft and smooth.
2. Pour ingredients into a serving glass and garnish with mint leaves and enjoy!
