Sorry to interrupt your smoothie recipe, but this is one of the 101 smoothie recipes from our first book, Skinny Smoothies. You can find the book online at many retailers. Click this link to buy directly from Amazon, Barnes & Noble or Indie Bound. Buy the book. We have published 101 recipes that are not on this site, so no duplication between the smoothie site and the smoothie book from smoothieweb.com. Although we will publish a very few, like this one, to give you a “taste” of what is in the book.

Now back to our green smoothie recipe.

Cucumbers work as a detox aid, facilitating excretion of wastes through the kidneys, thus avoiding the body’s need to purge waste through the skin. In other words, cucumbers are good for healthy skin.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cucumber, peeled
  • 1 cup honeydew melon
  • 1/2 cup pear juice
  • 1 tablespoons fresh lime juice
