Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie

 Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie, light, refreshing, yummy!

Pineapple and Cucumber Smoothie

I like to create and make food for people.  I wish I had time to do it more, but I do what I can balancing my families needs, etc….  One of the girls’ teachers has to rush and get lunch, and I really wanted to give her a yummy, healthy, smoothie so she could relax a bit.  This is one of our smoothies that doesn’t have a whole lot of ingredients.  I know less is more sometimes, sometimes.  It took me three tries to get something I liked for her, and this is what I came to love.

Pineapple Cucumber Smoothie

The Verdict: I thought it was a nice balance of the fresh cucumber and sweet fruits.  I think she liked it, too!

    I love smoothies! Always looking for new recipes! I never ever thought to put cucumber in a smoothie before! Currently I am in a green smoothie phase- been adding dark leafy veggies to my smoothies- my baby even likes them! I’m new to your site, will be back to look at all of your recipes. Looks delicious!

      Hi Allegra. I just started putting in cucumbers this year. We’ve experimented with different veggies. We are now adding celery to different smoothies. Both celery and cucumbers can be surprisingly overbearing, so make it a less than 1/3 cup if you don’t want to taste it. Thanks for visiting!
