Cucumber smoothie

Basic cucumber smoothie

1 cucumber, peeled and seeded

1 avocado

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.
