Cucumber Smoothie Recipes: Cheap, Easy, Quick And Healthy
Welcome back to my Smoothie Corner. Some of you have been asking me about cucumber and if I had any particular recipe to share with you. So today is Cucumber Day and I would like to give you some of the easiest, quickest and healthiest cucumber smoothie recipes you will ever find.
The ingredients in these recipes are not only cheap but really easy to find and you will have a healthy smoothie to share with your little ones and grown-ups as well in a matter of minutes.
But enough said let’s get started:
1 The Cuculery Smoothie
I like to call it like this to hide from my kids the cucumber and celery ingredients. If they knew this delicious smoothie was made with these two power plants they will probably refuse to drink it even before they try it. So I made up a funky name gave it to them, and guess what They LOVE IT!
Ingredients: 4 servings
- 5-6 celery stalks
- 1 cucumber
- 2 non-dairy yogurts
- 1 teaspoon of olive oil
- 1 teaspoon of Vinegar
- 1 pinch (small one) of salt
I know what you are thinking: she is preparing a salad! But you gonna have to trust me. It tastes good and it is really really healthy for you.
Wash the stalks of the celery and put them in your Nutribullet or blender of your choice
Wash and chop the cucumber without peeling it and also again in the blender allowing it to mix with the celery.
Add the yogurt, salt, oil, and vinegar to taste, mix well and store in the fridge. It’s ideal to serve it very cold and it can be an excellent nonalcholic beverage to offer to your guest accompanied by small appetizers.
2 Spinach, Cucumber, Apple, Pineapple, Melon Smoothie
This time I am afraid I can’t really hide the name, I tried to come up with all sorts of names but really none of them were reflecting the beauty of all these ingredients, so it is only fair to keep the smoothie with its original name
- 35 leaves spinach sprouts
- 200 g melon previously cleaned
- 300 g green apple (you can replace it with 300 ml of 100% apple juice with no added sugar if needed
- 350 g pineapple (without the peel)
- 100 g cucumber
- Juice of 2 lemons
- 1/2 celery stalk
Wash spinach, apple, and cucumber and chop them in little pieces
Remove the skin and seeds of the melon and slice the melon and the pineapple.
Put all the ingredients in the glass of the blender and beat until everything is well crushed (If you notice the mixture is too dense you can add half a glass of water) and … enjoy!
To end my list of Smoothie I am going to finish with another super cheap super easy and super healthy smoothie and it will even help you lose a bit of weight
3 Cucumber and Lemon Smoothie
- 1 cucumber
- 2 celery branches
- 1 lemon
- 1 piece of ginger
- 1 cup of the parsley coffee
- 1-liter water
Wash the ingredients and blend them with 1/2 liter of water
Strain to separate the juice and enjoy it. As simple and as quickly as that!
If you happened to have a juicer, rather than blend the ingredients you can juice them (cold pressed juicers are the best ) in that case you do not need to do the last step of the recipe.
With the remains, you can prepare a sauce to flavor salads
So that’¡s it from my Smoothie Corner, as promised these juices and smoothies are simple and very affordable to do, so there is no excuse for not to drink them. I hope you will try them and enjoy them as much as I do and don’t forget to let me know what you think about it in the comments section below.
Till the next time
May you all have a blessed day.
