Recipe Tips & Substitutions

  • You can easily double this recipe to make more servings.
  • To make this a creamy smoothie, use almond milk or light canned coconut milk instead of the coconut water. Coconut milk will add a nice boost of healthy fats.
  • If you prefer a sweeter smoothie, you can add up to 1-2 teaspoons of honey.
  • Some people find that cucumbers are easier to digest if you peel them. Persian cucumbers are the exception as they are considered a “burpless” cucumber. But, you may wish to peel English cucumbers if they tend to bother your stomach.
  • Feel free to get creative with this recipe. You can use ingredients like baby spinach, fresh ginger root, chia seeds, protein powder, Greek yogurt, or oat milk as options.
