Easy Cucumber Smoothie Recipe: Ideal for the summer
Today, the smoothie is in the spotlight. Cucumber, lemon and mint, and that’s it.
Before I tasted the delicious dandy cucumber mojitos, I was pretty skeptical about the presence of this vegetable in the drinks. But that was before. From now on, I put them on and I want them everywhere. When I saw this recipe in the book “200 recipes like in New York”, it was impossible to resist the temptation.
Doing a detox before the summer not only helps strengthen your body by filling up with vitamins and minerals while ridding yourself of toxins, but it’s also a real makeover ! A detox will revitalize you, improve your complexion and even help you sleep better ! That’s why all this week, we help you in this cure by providing you every day with juice recipes and smoothies to accompany you in your detox !
Why do you have to drink smoothies during your detox?
Smoothies are a great way to consume fruits and vegetables at the same time. While it is quite easy to integrate fruits into your daily diet, vegetables, which are rich in vitamins and minerals, are sometimes more restrictive because they require more preparation. Smoothie is therefore an excellent way to consume them raw (and therefore rich in intakes). Moreover, unlike a juice extractor, smoothies are made up of all the elements of the fruits and vegetables that make up them. Thus, if smoothies are less concentrated in vitamins and minerals, they will also allow you to fill up with fiber, and will provide you with a feeling of satiety.
An ultra fresh smoothie, perfect for improvised snacks during hot periods. I arranged the recipe with my own sauce : in my different trials, the result was either too thick or too acidic. A little sugar, and it’s advantage (for diabetes) !
For 2 large glasses
– 1 cucumber-1 lemon-10 mint leaves (approx.) – ice cubes – water-cane sugar
Cucumber Smoothie preparation
1. Peel the cucumber skin and cut it into pieces. Squeeze the lemon.
2. In a blender, mix the cucumber + lemon juice + mint leaves + ice. The mixture must be smooth.
4. Pour half of the preparation into each glass and taste it without further delay ! If the smoothie is too thick, you can add some water. If it is not sweet enough, add cane sugar 😉
