Recipes for free: Water melon cucumber cooler

watermelon cucumber coolerThis smoothie recipe was born out of my love for watermelon, an excess of red leaf lettuce, and a influx of fresh picked strawberries. The lettuce came from a local produce club that needed to give it away for free. I had more red leaf than I knew what to do with and I refused let any of it go to waste. This Watermelon Cucumber Cooler is perfect as a summer breakfast or a late night pick me up. Raw honey and a pinch of sea salt balance out the flavors perfectly.
