I’ve got cucumber melon soaps and lotions, but I don’t think I’ve actually made anything flavored cucumber melon until now! After a minor dental surgery (no fun) I had to only eat soft foods for two weeks. The tricky part was also avoiding tomato or citrus-based ingredients since their acidity would burn (ouch!).
Most of my smoothie recipes have a bit of citrus, including my favorite jet-lag cure green smoothie. So it was a bit of a challenge to think of a green smoothie I could blend without citrus, until I took a little inspiration from my kitchen hand soap. This cucumber melon smoothie is just lightly sweet and has a definitive cucumber flavor that is so refreshing it reminds me of something you’d get at a spa.
