I still have lots of cucumbers growing in my garden. I love cucumbers but I can’t seem to use them fast enough and we’ve even given some away to neighbors. My kids and I like to make smoothies so these cucumber smoothies are perfect. The cucumber makes them light and refreshing and the blueberries add just the right amount of sweetness.
This is such a simple recipe that you can have your kids make them or at least they can help you. I found this on Martha Stewarts website but I modified it per my preferences. Take 1 medium (or 2 small) cucumber and peel and take out the seeds. Kids can take out the seeds with a spoon. Rough chop the cucumbers and put them in a blender with 3/4 cup of blueberries. I like to use frozen blueberries but you can use fresh if that is what you have but you’ll need to add ice. Add 3/4 cup of plain fat free yogurt and 1 cup of apple juice. Martha Stewart recommends white grape juice but I never have it and I think apple juice rounds out the flavors. Give the blender a whirl! A delicious, refreshing and healthy treat!
