Cucumber, Strawberry and Pineapple Smoothie

May 25, 2012

Surprisingly refreshing!

In your blender (I use a Vitamix), combine the following ingredients as listed below:

1/2 c. coconut milk
1/2 c. nonfat Greek yogurt
4-5 strawberries
3-4 slices pineapple
1/2 English cucumber (doesn't' have to be an English cuke!)
2 handfuls of ice

In your Vitamix, turn the machine on Setting 1 and Variable low.  Slowly turn to Setting 10 and Variable high until well blended.

For those without a high power mixer, I would start with the soft ingredients first and then slowly add the cucumber and ice to the blender.  My old blender did not blend the cucumber well unless I "dropped" the cucumbers in as I was mixing my smoothie.

And, this passed the "kid" test.  My kids drank it, really they did!  Pour and enjoy!
