sliced peeled cucumber
crushed ice, or as needed
This was very tasty. It was nice and thick and very sweet, in a good way. I couldn't really taste the cucumber, but typically can't taste a little celery or carrot added to a smoothie either. I made a 1/2 recipe which yielded 1 serving and not 2. For 1/2 the recipe I did 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 small frozen sliced banana, 1/4 cup sliced English cucumber. I didn't bother to peel it. It doesn't have a tough skin, 1/4 cup of Trader Joes Greek nonfat vanilla bean yogurt, 1/4 cup of water, and 1 ice cube. I blended in my Vitamix blender about 30 seconds on speed 10 and 20 or so seconds on high. Just needed to tamper it a bit. Calories came to 175, as typed above, and using 1 small banana. I will make this again. TY
This smoothie went down easy, but I wouldn't say I really enjoyed it. For me, it needs to be sweeter. Maybe my banana wasn't ripe enough? If I make it again I will probably add more banana, maybe some strawberries, and see if that helps.
I was happy with how this turned out. I didn't have any cucumber so I used strawberries instead, I thought it still tasted really good. It was a nice treat to have after a long day at the beach
I was very hesitant about the cucumber in this smoothie, but it's just barely detectable and actually gives it a really fresh taste. I can see making this on a really hot day to cool off...it's that refreshing. Since the calorie count is so low, I actually drank 2 servings (cutting the recipe in half for just me).
When I was making a smoothie I realize I didn't have any bananas so I used one cup of frozen strawberries instead of a banana. I also added one Hersheys chocolate bar blended it altogether and it was great. I suggest using have a small cucumber too much cucumber it can make a wonderful smoothie, we'll lets say not so wonderful!
Great recipe thanks
really, it was just okay. I've had "sweeter" "fruitier" smoothies. it just didn't have enough flavor. the positive thing I can say is its definitely light in calories.
