Melon & Cucumber Yogurt Smoothie

Smoothies are now big business and it’s easy to spend quite a lot on one when you’re out and about, but they are so simple to make and literally take minutes to prepare.

I like the cool flavour of melon and cucumber together. Use a perfumed melon such as Galia, Honeydew, or Charantais, this will give a deeper flavoured end result.
