I’d never thought to try cucumbers in my smoothies, but one morning I was craving something particularly refreshing, so I tried this concoction. ┬áThe result was a cucumber and spinach smoothie that was surprisingly refreshing after my workout.

Ingredients

1 cup spinach (I keep mine frozen in the bag)
1/2 cup chopped cucumber
handful of flax seeds
sprinkle of chia
2 thick slices of ginger (I keep mine sliced and frozen)
1 date
juice from half a lemon
1/4 can of coconut milk (I just used the watery part)
few leaves of fresh mint (optional)

I enjoyed this smoothie with one of my sugar-free apple cookie bars!
