This Energizing Cucumber Mint Smoothie will become your go-to smoothie recipe this summer!
Who’s ready for summer?! This girl. This Cucumber Mint Smoothie will get you ready if you’re not there yet. It’s light, refreshing, and ENERGIZING!
Cucumbers and mint are abundant in the summer so this is a perfect summer smoothie. Who grows their own vegetables? How wonderful would it be to walk outside, grab a cucumber and some mint from your garden, and blend up this smoothie. Ah. #lifegoals
Cucumbers are full of water, so this is a hydrating smoothie. Mint has a cooling effect as well. This smoothie will keep you cool and refreshed all summer long!
This Energizing Cucumber Mint Smoothie is also made with Daily Energy Nutrient Booster Powder from MegaFood. I’ve been adding their different Nutrient Booster Powders to my smoothies every day, and they are total game changers. Who couldn’t use a nutrient boost daily?
Daily Energy is an uplifting Nutrient Booster Powder that includes FoodState B12 and Farm Fresh Beets. This power-packed duo promotes and sustains energy levels throughout the day without any stimulants.*
Energy without caffeine?! Game changer, right? No more afternoon coffee that just gives me the shakes instead of giving me real energy. I’m not saying I don’t love my coffee. I do. But this lovely Nutrient Booster Powder is helping me drink less of it.
Daily Energy also includes FoodState Chromium and Green Tea, which help enhance mental alertness, focus, and healthy metabolism.* It also contains Eleuthero and Ashwagandha, herbs revered for their body-strengthening properties.* As a mom with a lot on her plate, I appreciate all of those things!
I leave the skin on my cucumber for maximum nutrition, but if you prefer a super smooth smoothie, you can peel it first. Either way, you’re going to love the flavor of this Energizing Cucumber Mint Smoothie! I’ve made it five days in a row now and I’m going back to the grocery store for more mint. I think I’m going to have to plant some this year. 🙂
I also include directions for using a frozen cucumber vs. fresh. The flavor is the same, but the one with frozen cucumber is a bit thicker. I tried it both ways and couldn’t decide which I liked better. You decide!
