(DIY) Do it yourself Cucumber Smoothie

Standard

If told me in January that later in the year I would be blogging about healthy and low calorie food, I would have laughed in your while stuffing a big slice of domino’s Italiano fest pizza in my face. Yet here I am today 6 months later sharing with you the recipe of my easy to make cucumber, mint and lemon smoothie. I put up a picture on my instagram a few days ago and had quite a lot of people ask me how to make it. So why not kill two birds with one stone! I get to blog, and you learn my not so secret recipe. I am including pictures just for the heck of it, honestly how difficult can it be to mix a bunch of stuff together. Alrightie here we go!

What you need:

1 large cucumber

A few mint leaves

1 lemon (squeeze the juice)

1 cup green tea (I used lemongrass) you can use any, or plain water too.

Pinch of salt.

One deliciously refreshing smoothie is yours to enjoy. If for some reason you do not like the taste, excuse me, I have been drinking it for so long, I think my taste buds must have stopped protesting. You don’t have to stick to the recipe, make it your own, I sometimes add carrots, apples and other fresh ingredients too. So knock yourself out. Do try it and tell me how it was!
