Cucumber Lime Cooler

       This is not a thickened smoothie, but it is a really, really refreshing drink. I made this the other day before I exercised and it was the perfect drink post workout. It was tart, sweet, fruity and rejuvenating. I made a glass for Cale and one for myself. Cale really loved his. It tastes like a kicked up version of limeade, but not quite as sweet. In fact, I've been craving it every time I exercise. There is something about this drink that made me want more. Hopefully, you'll feel the same way too.
