Smoothies are one of my favourite snacks / meals. I usually have one a day, after a workout. They’re super refreshing, and when using the right ingredients, they are a huge boost of energy and nutrition.
I shared a Summer Citrus Smoothie a couple weeks ago, and thought I would share some more creations. A Green Smoothie is my go-to favourite. I usually throw in some spinach, kale, banana ice and almond milk and whirl it up in the blender. I thought I’d venture out and add a few more ingredients to my regular Green smoothie recipe.
I’ve seen lots of smoothies with cucumbers, but I never thought about adding them to mine. I wasn’t sure they would break down nicely, but the cucumber makes it cool and refreshing, and adds a great texture. I also added in a slice of avocado, which I’ve done before to make it super smooth and thick and creamy!
Smoothies are easy, refreshing, and packed with nutrients.
Cool as a Cucumber Green Smoothie
- 1 1/2 cups Kale, washed, rind removed
- 1 slice of avocado
- 1/4 cup sliced cucumber
- Splash Almond Milk (or other milk alternative)
- 1 small banana
- 5 pieces frozen banana slices
- 5 ice cubes

Add all ingredients to blender, and puree until smooth and creamy. Serve in tall glass, with a straw.
