Today I used the first cucumber from our garden – yay for growing our own veggies! While it was a tiny little thing, I was so proud of it and wanted to use it in a smoothie as I was craving something light and tasty (and something other than a salad, which tends to be my go-to food). So I did a quick search on some of my fave sites, and ran across What Gaby’s Cooking. She had some fun with cucumbers and pineapples recently and posted this delish, healthy and super simple smoothie so I gave it a shot. LOVED IT!


Thanks to Gaby for this delish treat!
