inspired by the abundance of fresh cucumbers my dad has growing in his garden I decided yesterday was the day to pull out all the stops and make time for something I've wanted to do for ages; pull out the brand new nutribullet my parents gave me for my birthday last february. besides, I like being cool & lately I keep hearing the buzz about how hip it is to carry a green drink en route to wherever it is hip people go too. yes, I am now officially hip! I should tell you that my recipe isn't the greatest and was a bit slushy at the end. perhaps I didn't drink it fast enough but I couldn't stomach drinking the slushy end of it and using a spoon didn't seem the least bit appetizing. being that I'm in favor of not wasting nutrients, I decided to mix it up again in the bullet with a bit more water which turned out to be not too flavorful. I have some ideas on how I can tweak it. I'll keep you posted.
(thanks mom & dad, I love my nutribullet)
all amounts are approximate since I don't measure well and often alter things as I go
