How to Make a Cucumber Avocado Smoothie

Homemade smoothies are one of the easiest things to master in the home kitchen. For the most part you gather your ingredients, throw them in a blender, puree until smooth, and enjoy.

What makes this cucumber avocado smoothie unique is the combination of ingredients going into it and the ingredients we leave out. The biggest thing that makes this smoothie different is that it’s not at all sweet.

This savory green smoothie doesn’t taste like spinach or kale, because it doesn’t have any. What it does contain: cucumber, avocado, cilantro, lime, water, and a dash of pink himalayan sea salt.

Optional Smoothie Add-ins

As with all homemade smoothies, all of these ingredients can be customized based on your own taste buds. Don’t like cilantro? Swap it for basil. Don’t have lime on hand? Try lemon or even orange. No pink salt? Skip it or swap it for the salt of your choice.

Looking to take it a step beyond that? Try including some of these popular add-ins to make your smoothie uniquely yours.

  • Flax seeds or chia seeds
