Basic cucumber smoothie
1 cucumber, peeled and seeded
½ cup yogurt, Greek or regular
½ cup milk of choice (oat, soy, cow, buttermilk, coconut)
Blend until smooth. Add more milk as necessary to make it drinkable. Salt to taste and top with a squeeze of sriracha or tabasco if desired.
Make it creamy with yogurt, sour cream, buttermilk or coconut milk.
Add strawberries, blueberries, mango or pineapple for a sweet treat. Or cantaloupe and mint for a not-so-sweet breakfast treat.
Make it gazpacho-like with tomatoes, onions and garlic. Whip up a chai-flavored smoothie with some cinnamon, ginger, honey and coconut milk.
