New Year's resolutions are full of good intentions, we wanna be healthy and fit, lose some weight and detox our bodies. This detox smoothie can help you to achieve your goals, it's really detoxifying, low in calories and taste amazing.
I could drink smoothies all day long, I would be happy! I'm always trying new ingredients and recipes. This is the first time I've used cucumber to make a smoothie and I love the taste!
Smoothies are so satisfying and healthy, you can drink them for breakfast or when you want, you'll feel better and they can help you to lose weight and clean your body.
All fruits are very detoxifying, so feel free to change the ingredients if you want. You can also drink other smoothies (you'll find more recipes on the blog). Coconut water is also a great choice or even orange juice, you can use them instead of the water, your smoothie will taste better and also will be more nutritious.
If you use organic cucumbers, you don't need to peel them. I use a non organic cucumber, that's why my smoothie is yellow, if you don't peel the cucumber, I guess your smoothie will be green. Eat organic fruits and vegetables if you can afford them, but if you can't, don't worry, animal foods have higher concentrations of pesticides, so eat green!
This smoothie has a strong flavor because of the lemon, so probably you'll want to add any sweeter. If you can't find dates in your country, they are expensive or you don't like them, you can use stevia, maple or agave syrup, sugar, molasses or your favorite sweetener.
This detox smoothie is delicious, seriously, but if I don't like cucumbers, add more pineapple or dates. You can also add leafy greens or celery to make it even more detoxifying.
