Yay tonight it’s NYE! It’s time to party until the sun comes up. Please enjoy the evening with your beloved ones and don’t worry about drinking and eating too much. If you wake up tomorrow and feel like detoxing make sure you have a stash of this fresh cucumber orange smoothie in the fridge. This is exactly what your body needs after a little bit too much alcohol and excessive ‘oliebol’* consumption.
*for the non Dutchies: this is some sort of deep fried donut with raisins and sugar. 🙂
Fresh Cucumber Orange Smoothie
Today I’m having a cucumber smoothie with orange. I know that it’s not actually cucumber time, but who cares, it’s a rainy morning and I’m in the mood for it. This dark green fruit veggie is filled with vitamins, potassium and works diuretic. Use the cucumber with skin because this contains fiber and minerals.
Many Dutch people use this crunchy veggie in salads, but don’t know that it taste very well in smoothies. Add an orange for extra vitamin C and voila, you’ll have the perfect combination!
What you need:
- 1 orange
- 1/2 banana
- 100 grams of lettuce
- 150 grams of cucumber
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 300 ml of water
- Optional: 4 drops of stevia/ 1 tsp honey/ 1 tsp wheatgrass
How to make it:
Cut the vegetables and fruit into pieces and put everything in the blender and mix it together! Pour into a tall glass and enjoy your delicious and healthy Fresh Cucumber Orange Smoothie
See you next week!
