This is one of my crazy creations that also happens to be the quenchable fave for me and my daughter.

It’s quick, easy, and oh so refreshing!

1 Lemon
1/2 Cucumber
2.5 Cups of water
Ice

Wash lemon and cucumber really well. Add 2.5 cups of water to the blender, add 1/2 cucumber unpeeled. Roll lemon on counter under the palm of your hand, pressing down to release the juices. Cut lemon in half. Squeeze the juice from 1/2 of the lemon into blender. Take the other 1/2 of lemon, cut three round slices and add them to blender (even the peel). Add in 1 handful of ice (more or less depending on how thick you like it.) Blend well and enjoy!

*Quick tip: I keep 1/2 a cucumber and a lemon in little baggies in my fridge for easy prep.
