This cool cucumber Green Smoothie combines raw fruits and veggies that are blended up in the most delicious way. It not only tastes amazing, but with all those vitamins, it leaves you feeling fantastic!
I needed this cool cucumber Green Smoothie in my life today. After taking in so much junk over the holidays, I am left feeling tired and puffy. I whipped up this green smoothie this morning and I am already starting to feel better. It is so amazing how fruits and vegetables make you feel good inside and out. I don’t know about you, but when I eat healthy, nutrient-packed food I have more energy, I am more in the mood for exercise, my skin feels better, and I think more clearly. And sometimes I just need a jump start back into healthy eating. And that is exactly what this smoothie does for me. I am so ready to detox all the salty, greasy, sugary foods from my body and replace it with vitamins and minerals. This is one of our best breakfast recipes to do just that.
Pump Up This Smoothie With a Few Variations
This smoothie is only 250 calories, but it actually makes a ton and leaves me feeling full. For even more sustainability and added protein add a little peanut butter. Also, feel free to substitute any of the fruit for your favorites. I found an awesome mix of greens in the vegetable section at Costco that I love for this smoothie. It is a pre-washed bag of spinach, kale, and chard, and it is awesome! I just throw in a couple of handfuls. By the way, have I mentioned what a big fan I am of my Blendtec? I used to have such a crappy blender so I am completely in love. It makes a perfect smoothie every time.
