SMOOTHIE SATURDAYS: CUCUMBER & MORE
You all know how much we love a smoothie, if posting a weekly smoothie recipe isn’t enough to justify that maybe pop back to yesterday’s post and find out some facts you might not have known.
This weeks smoothie ties in nicely with getting back into your workout regime, as it has ingredients that are good for anti-inflammatory hydration and generally all around good nutrition.
Here’s what you’ll need:
¾ cup of coconut water
½ English cucumber, chopped
1 bunch of flat leaf parsley leaves only, chopped
2 medium lemons, peeled and seeded
2 cups of fresh pineapple, frozen
5 drops of liquid stevia or more to taste (optional)
2 scoops of vanilla protein powder (optional)
The stevia and the protein powder are optional. We like to always add protein powder to our smoothies to help them fill us up more. We also tend to have them after or before a workout session so it’s important to replace/fuel your body and by adding protein- helps.
