Cucumber Avocado Green Smoothie

3/4 cup lemon water
1 small avocado, peeled and pitted
1/2 cucumber, sliced
Handful of spinach
1/2 cup cottage cheese with chives
8 ice cubes

Blend well for about 1 minute.  Makes about 32 oz.  

In my mind a "green" smoothie is the kind that has all vegetables and no sweetness of fruits.  Since in my mind smoothies are inherently sweet, I was a little apprehensive to go completely fruitless.  But this has one turned out a lot better than I expected.  Turns out, I am a huge fan of avocado fruit, which is 75% fat.
