With warmer weather coming up over the next few months, you’ll want to have this Cucumber Smoothie recipe in your back pocket. It’s a light and refreshing combination that is mildly sweet and just perfect when you want to hydrate.

Cucumbers have a naturally high amount of water, so that’s what makes them so perfect for a smoothie. They blend easily and taste great with fresh lime juice and a touch of honey (vegans can use maple syrup).

Recipe Steps

Step One

Place your sliced cucumber, lime juice, honey, almond milk, and ice in your blender.

If you don’t want to use boxed almond milk in this recipe, you can make your own homemade almond milk. Pumpkin seed milk would also be delicious! See my list of the best homemade dairy-free milk recipes.

And, as always, please check the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Pro Tips

  • You can easily double or triple this recipe depending on how many servings you want.
