We’ve all had one of those days where we just want to lay around and dream of being pampered. I took that longing and decided to surprise my family with a light spa-inspired icy beverage! The mint is cooling, cucumber refreshing, and pineapple is sweet. I added in some honey for my father (he has a sweet tooth), but feel free to leave it out. It’s a super light drink, best served with a spoon.
2 cups crushed ice
¾ cup cucumber (diced, ≈ ½ of a cucumber)
¾ cup pineapple chunks (4-5 oz)
5-6 mint leaves
¼ cup honey (optional)
Peel and seed the cucumber. Dice and add to the blender.
Add the remaining ingredients to the blender and blend for 2 minutes, or until everything is pureed – it will be icy, that’s the point!
Serve cold and enjoy!
