  • 2.

    Roughly chop the mini cucumber and add it to the melon. Finely grate in the lime zest. Squeeze in the lime juice. Pick the mint leaves off their sprigs and add them to the blender.

    Extra, extra
    If you have a big blender you can use all the melon in this smoothie, although this will affect the nutritional information and you may need to trickle in a bit more water. The leftover melon half will keep in your fridge, wrapped, for a couple of days. Try tossing chopped leftover melon with chopped cucumber and tomatoes, some shredded mint leaves and gloss with a simple vinegar and olive oil dressing for a refreshing salad.
