[Recipe] Refreshing Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie



This is a lovely twist on a ‘traditional’ smoothie recipe. I’m a recent convert to adding cucumber to my smoothies. It was surprising that what I think of as a pretty tasteless veggie can make such a difference to my smoothie.

We know to put cucumber on puffy eyes and on sunburnt skin to help, but Dana the MinimalistBaker tell us …

Cucumbers are important to add to your diet because they’re 95% water and naturally detoxify your body; are high in Vitamins A, B and C; and contain phytonutrients that provide anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and anti-cancer effects.

They’re also a secret weapon for nails and hair, thanks to the nutrient silica, which helps them grow strong and shiny.
