Cucumbers are wonderful. They are a perfect smoothie addition. With a mild but distinctive flavour and excellent hydrating properties, as well as containing a variety of vitamins, including several B vits. I think they provide a great base ingredient for a ‘first thing in the morning’ smoothie.
Remember to buy organic, as otherwise the skins may be waxed…
…and moreover, mint will calm a nervous stomach…amongst other things…
….so what better match for an early morning ‘conquer stress and face the day calmly’ sort of smoothie…. 🌸
