Green Smoothie

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.

  1. Cool Cucumber Smoothie

    Although I like almonds not a big fan of Almond milk. Can I use regular skim milk by any chance?

  2. i made this without the kale and pineapple and strawberries it looked rly healthy and it for sure tasted healthy probably should put all the ingredients in next time

    1. Yes, the pineapple and strawberries do give the smoothie so much flavor and sweetness. The kale adds a lot of nutrition to the smoothie and the bitter flavor is covered up by the fruit.

  3. 5 stars
