This cucumber smoothie is sweet, creamy, and delicious.
The cucumbers in my garden are ready for harvest, at least two per day. They are so delicious right off the vine.
Today, I am blending half of a cucumber in a smoothie with some kale, an apple, carrot and yogurt. It’s a simple, creamy treat that is ready in minutes. Sweet.
Is cucumber smoothie healthy?
Cucumbers are good for you because they’re 95% water and naturally detoxify your body. They’re high in vitamins A, B and C; and contain phytonutrients that provide anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer effects.
I recommend organic produce free of chemicals and pesticides, whenever possible.
Is yogurt smoothie good for you?
You bet. Yogurt adds a good amount of protein to this smoothie. Greek yogurt adds 12 grams of protein per half cup. It also adds live probiotics, which can aid in gut health, as well as calcium and vitamin B-12.
I hope you enjoy this cucumber smoothie.

Okay trying this again, it rejected my first attempt. In case of natural disaster grab family, pets and the Vitamix.
