As with all smoothies, ease is paramount. Simply whirr all the ingredients in a blender. Garnishing with fresh mint is purely optional, and I’m not sure it’s something I would have done if I was not taking a photo of this at the end. But you know, maybe we should garnish things just for ourselves. It really is nice to sit in the shade with a smooth, icy drink festooned with a tall sprig of mint.
