Welcome to the second in my series of anthropomorphic smoothies!

This cool smoothie is a perfect choice to have with a meal or as a refreshing summer treat all on its own.  But admittedly, probably doesn't play very good jazz*.  It's super-light, with the yogurt adding some texture and complementary tangy flavor to the cucumber and matcha.  It has a ton of vitamin C and I've heard rumors that green tea cures everything, so it's not too shabby for a low-cal, non-fat beverage.

Ingredients
2 Medium Cucumber, peeled and sliced
17 oz Coconut Water, pour 1/2 into ice cube tray and freeze
6 oz Non-Fat Greek Yogurt
3 Tablespoon Agave
1 Teaspoon Matcha Powder
1 Teaspoon Fresh Mint, minced
Makes about 3 servings

Directions
Mix all in blender, adding coconut water ice cubes individually at the end.

*A decent jazz smoothie would probably contain far more bourbon and have a smoke ring for garnish.
