On a nice warm summer day or even a warm late spring day, if you close your eyes and sip on this refreshing smoothie you’d think you were wrapping a day up at the spa. That is exactly what that this smoothie reminds me of. It is a great way to escape your busy everyday life, if you can take the time to put your feet up and sip away.

You definitely need to be a fan of cucumbers to appreciate this one. Lucky for me, I love them. This is a low fat, low calorie yet filling smoothie and is a great way to get in 1 serving of vegetables and 1 ½ servings of fruit in every smoothie. Plus this smoothie has 8.2 grams of protein, that’s 2 grams more than an egg. It also has 15% of the RDA for dietary fiber and a high dose of vitamin C to boot. I love getting extra vitamin C in my diet and try to make sure my family gets plenty too. With kids in three different schools and another one at home, we can use all the immunity boosting we can get! I am pretty sure you can too!
