This refreshing summer smoothie made with blueberries, cucumber and vanilla yogurt will have you feeling super!
This was very tasty. It was nice and thick and very sweet, in a good way. I couldn't really taste the cucumber, but typically can't taste a little celery or carrot added to a smoothie either. I made a 1/2 recipe which yielded 1 serving and not 2. For 1/2 the recipe I did 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries, 1 small frozen sliced banana, 1/4 cup sliced English cucumber. I didn't bother to peel it. It doesn't have a tough skin, 1/4 cup of Trader Joes Greek nonfat vanilla bean yogurt, 1/4 cup of water, and 1 ice cube. I blended in my Vitamix blender about 30 seconds on speed 10 and 20 or so seconds on high. Just needed to tamper it a bit. Calories came to 175, as typed above, and using 1 small banana. I will make this again. TY - 22 May 2014 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
This smoothie went down easy, but I wouldn't say I really enjoyed it. For me, it needs to be sweeter. Maybe my banana wasn't ripe enough? If I make it again I will probably add more banana, maybe some strawberries, and see if that helps. - 09 Jun 2014 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
I was happy with how this turned out. I didn't have any cucumber so I used strawberries instead, I thought it still tasted really good. It was a nice treat to have after a long day at the beach - 07 Jul 2014 (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
