Cucumber Cooler Smoothie Recipe

Cucumbers are very undervalued vegetables. They’re loaded with polyphenols called lignans, which have been shown to fight some forms of cancer. They also have several antioxidants that inhibit the production of certain enzymes which cause inflammation. Cucumbers are also low calorie, making them great for diet-friendly smoothies. Lemon adds a bit a zing to this.

Greek yogurt adds protein to this to help fill you up.  Although this recipe calls for water as the liquid, any other liquid can be used. I like to add almond milk for a bit more flavor, although that does add calories.

  1. Do I have to us Greek Yogurt? I do not like it. Thank you for your reply.

    • Do I have to use greek yogurt?

    • No, you don’t have to use Greek yogurt. Regular is fine, or you can leave out the yogurt altogether. But if you do that, I suggest using something with some flavor as your liquid, such as vanilla almond milk or coconut milk. Or toss a banana in to make it smoother.

  2. Do you peel the cucumbers or leave the skin on?

  3. Im looking for recipes that dont raise my blood sugar and help me loose weight in my stomach
