Cucumber Cooler

I was dying for a fun drink today.  One that was chilled, refreshing, healthy and tasty.  I found a recipe for a cucumber drink in one of my cookbooks called Super Natural Every Day.  I didn't have all the ingredients on hand, so I improvised and came up with this recipe:

1 cucumber, peeled
3 cups of ice
1/2 cup of water
1/4 cup of agave nectar (or honey)
3 leaves of basil
3 strawberries

Combine ingredients in a blender.  Enjoy!
*The original recipe calls for lime juice and honey, it did not have agave, basil or strawberries.
