So healthy and so healing.
Blending greens into smoothie releases even more essential nutrients that we don’t always get when eating them whole.
This Fresh Green Smoothie has the perfect name – it is super fresh and light with a dash of mint and a touch of sweetness. It is not as thick as a typical smoothie and is almost more of a juice – I like to have it for breakfast with a side of apple and almond butter or take it to go with a Super Seed & Nut Square.
It also makes a perfect, light and energizing afternoon snack!
- 3/4 cup water
- 1/2 cup chopped cucumber (about a 2-3 inch piece)

- 7 – 10 fresh mint leaves
- 1 Tbsp hemp seeds

Tips & Nutrition
This smoothie is more like a juice when blended. If you would prefer it a bit more creamy you can add 1/2 an avocado or frozen banana.
You can amp up the protein by putting in a scoop of vanilla protein powder or adding an extra tablespoon of hemp or pumpkin seeds.
Blend everything together in the order they are listed in a high speed blender until well combined.
