Cucumber in a smoothie?


So making smoothies is all about getting healthy, eating more fruits and veggies, and having fun finding the best combo of produce. Today's smoothie had something I thought was interesting in it: a persian cucumber.

So persian cucumbers are basically mini cucumbers that are a little softer and have no seeds in them. They're great for smoothies because they're not hard on the blender and they have a nice mild skin that isn't bitter like some larger cucumbers. Overall, a nice addition to the smoothie and something I'll probably use in the future!

  • 1 persian cucumber
  • 1 handful kale
  • 1 pear
  • 1 banana
  • 8 oz coconut water
  • 8 oz water
  • 2 tbs protein
  • 1 tbs chia seeds
  • 2 tsp Very Green
Good smoothie! Not too sweet but very refreshing with the light cucumber taste and the pear as well. I also like cucumber drinks so it's not surprise I enjoyed this in my smoothie.
