The Really Rather Green Drink – recipe


OK, I admit, this drink looks … well … very green!  But it is nutritious, refreshing and delicious.  So it looks like that suspicious green gloop the Catherine Banning character (played brilliantly by Rene Russo) was drinking in the remake of The Thomas Crown Affair – well never mind that, this stuff is way better, tastes lovely and is good for you.

Have a go and tell me I’m right. Go on, drink your greens! 🙂


  • Handful of fresh mint
  • 1 large cucumber, skin included
  • 1/4 cup apple juice
  • Juice of 1 lime (about 1/4 cup)


Place all the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth.  Serve with plenty of ice for a cooling and refreshing drink in the summer or after chilling in the fridge in the cooler months.

To spice things up a little, you could add some fresh grated ginger to the mix. You can also strain the drink for a smoother finish, but to me, that’s just a waste of the good green stuff.
