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!
