Easy Morning Green Smoothie

Brent and I made a commitment to getting more greens into our diet this summer and morning smoothies have been a fast and delicious way to do it. This recipe is so simple, it almost feels like it shouldn’t count. Still, we have experimented with a few variations and ultimately found that we like this collection of ingredients best. The smoothie is tangy, bright, and filling. It would be refreshing any time of the day, but we have enjoyed sipping it each morning the past few weeks. (It’s been too hot to crave eggs or other, heavier breakfast items.) We hope you’ll agree that this is an excellent way to start your day!

Ingredients
1/2 large seedless cucumber
1/2 of 1 whole lemon, most seeds removed
