Cool Cucumber Green Smoothie

Green smoothies are all the hype! And that’s because they are super good for you! Leafy and green veggies have a number of benefits for your body and for your gut! But for a lot of folks, the thought of drinking something that tastes so earthy is a bit intimidating. It is an acquired taste I would say (which for the record, anyone can acquire 🙂 ) but I often enjoy making this lighter version that still includes all of the good stuff that green smoothies offer!

The great thing about smoothies is you can really just throw in whatever you have in the fridge. By doing this, I usually come up with some really great recipes which I end up making over and over again. I am excited to share this one with you just in time for spring. Good news too, its kid and husband friendly 🙂

2 handfuls of Spinach

Half a cucumber, sliced
