Nutritious AND Delicious Cucumber And Lime Smoothie
Want something refreshing to start your day?
Sometimes beginning your day with a smoothie is the perfect option when you’re short on time and looking to get nutritious fuel into your system.
Plus, you can actually get a full serving of vegetables in with your smoothie, which most people completely overlook.
Best of all, with the right mix of ingredients you’ll hardly notice they’re in there.
This cucumber smoothie has it all.
It brings the rejuvenating taste of cucumber along with the creamy texture from avocado, all blended together with some fresh melons for added vitamins.
The avocado will supply the healthy fats along with vitamin E while the melon will bring a hearty dose of antioxidants and vitamin C.
Finally, the spinach adds a wealth of nutrition, giving you vitamin K, vitamin A, iron, and calcium to name just a few.
Blend this together with some unsweetened almond milk (or real milk if you prefer) along with as a few cubes of ice.
