Refreshing Limeade Smoothie

If you don't know by now, I am a huge fan of smoothies to start my day.  I like to get in almost all my servings of fruits and vegetables first thing in the morning because it keeps me feeling fresh instead of weighing myself down with carbs and other heavy foods.

Unfortunately because of this, at work I am now known as the girl with the green smoothies.
Needless to say, when I came across this recipe for a "Limeade Smoothie" on With Style & Grace, I had to try it.


I altered the ingredients to work with what I had:

 2 Persian cucumbers
1/2 avocado
2 handfuls baby spinach
3-4 peeled limes
ice
agave nectar

As mentioned in the original recipe, I did have to add some water to get the ingredients to blend



After my first taste, I did have to pour the smoothie back into the blender and add some more sweetener because it was too tart, but once I did, it really did taste like limeade.  It's refreshing and hydrating and is great for hot mornings on the way to work


I'll have to work on my food photography skillz, but hey, at least you know this is the real deal.
