Smoothies are usually sweet but they can be refreshing and light without being sweet which is especially appealing in the summer months. We have an abundance of cucumber from our garden now so I am being creative with them. We add them to our vegetable juice and I will make some pickles but this smoothie is quick and makes a good light breakfast.
1/2 of a med-large cucumber chopped in large pieces
1/2 of an avocado
juice of 1/2 lemon
2 Tbsp. Great Lakes Collagen powder (optional)
Place cucumber in a blender and blend until pulverized and liquified. Add other ingredients and blend again. Drink immediately.
