Let's blend!

My ‘Pimms’ Smoothie

This alcohol-free smoothie incorporates all the juicy flavours of the classic ‘Pimms’ cocktail. It tastes like Summer in a glass!
INGREDIENTS

handful of strawberries
1/4 cucumber
1/4 fresh lemon
small knob of ginger
1 little Gem lettuce leave
10 mint leaves
a sprig of mint and sliced strawberry to serve
 

STEP-BY-STEP METHOD

Start by prepping all the ingredients:

  • Wash and hull the strawberries.
  • Cut the cucumber into chunks.
  • Squeeze the juice from the lemon.
  • Scrape the skin off the ginger using a spoon or knife, and cut into rough chunks.
  • Wash your lettuce leaves and mint.

Now put everything into the blender, with a splash of apple juice and 3 ice cubes.

Give everything a whizz – and serve!

 

Delicious, refreshing and totally cool…

… which brings me neatly to the CUCUMBER!!

 Yes, we’ve all been traumatised after finding them lurking, sliced and flaccid, on the edge of our salad, but did you know that the humble cucumber actually packs some nutritional punch? There’s plenty of water, vitamin C, vitamin A and folic acid in the pale inner flesh. You’ll find fibre, molybdenum and silica in the dark green skin, so as you munch through your cucumbers on a hot summer’s day, you could be crunching your way to better hydrated and firmer skin!
