Cucumber Winter Smoothie

  • Yield: 2

Ingredients

  • 1 cucumber, ends removed and rough chopped
  • 2 apples, cored and rough chopped
  • 1 cup frozen mango
  • 2-4 cups baby spinach (I used 4)
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1 cup water

Instructions

  1. Add ingredients to a high-speed blender and process until smooth. If using a regular blender just chop the ingredients a little smaller and blend in batches if necessary.
  2. *Note: I was using one of my smaller blendtec containers and blended the fruit first then added the spinach and finished blending.
