A refreshing smoothie with cucumber, mint, lime & cumin
Exchange of recipes is like gift cards among folks high on cooking. It is quite amazing how many recipes and ideas are shared among foodies in offices, cafeterias, parks etc. This two-minute Cucumber Smoothie came to me from one of Mom’s former colleagues. A man of many talents. A hockey player & a coach who was also a chef and he used to work at the bank. Which meant: practice in the morning, office during day time and then the restaurant at night. He was not only efficient but also enthusiastic and his energy used to rub off on people. A real life role model in some ways. He had turned the office cafeteria into a small kitchen and the recipes he shared were always simple and the food was amazing.
This smoothie is basic and can be made sweet or a bit sweet-salty. Put all the ingredients in a blender and just give it a spin. Done !!!
