Green Smoothie
Makes: about 2 cups

1/4 cup chopped cucumber (if you aren’t using Persian or English, remove seeds)
1/2 cup fresh/frozen mango (you can also substitute pineapple or a ripe pear)
1/2 cup fresh/frozen spinach
1 banana
1/2 cup almond milk (you can substitute coconut milk/coconut water)

Make It:
In a high-powered blender, puree all ingredients until smooth. I use a Magic Bullet Blender which is great for smaller portions. Serve room temperature or chilled.

You can prep the ingredients in advance and freeze in a resealable plastic/eco-friendly bag for easy use. Just add the banana and almond milk just before making.
