If you are counting on not-green smoothie on this blog, once again you’ll be disappointed. I don’t know why, but every time I make smoothie it comes out green. This time, despite using orange and lemon, drink is again green. I put a blame on cucumber and mint! Damn green veggies!
Putting aside the colour of this smoothie, I have to say it’s quite refreshing and energetic drink. Perfect for breakfast, especially for those who hate getting up early (including me). Friuts will give a huge dose of energy from fructose and dietery fibre will make you stomach full until second breakfast or lunch.
1 medium apple
½ cucumber (100g)
few mint leaves
up to ¼ cup water
Peel orange and lemon. Don’t peel cucumber and ple. Cut everything in cubes. Blend it with mint leaves. Add little water if needed.
