Summary

What comes to mind when you think of smoothies? Most likely it’s fruit with a hint of veggies and more sweet than savory. But salad lovers can enjoy smoothies too! Blend your favorite salad ingredients to create a deliciously creamy smoothie that’s packed with flavors from cucumber, lime, cilantro (optional!), and shallots (yes, shallots!), with a little mango for just a touch of sweetness.

Ingredients

 2 cups cucumber (skin peeled, sliced. About 2 large cucumbers)
 ¾ cup avocado (smashed. About 1 large avocado)
 1 handful organic spinach

 2 tbsp lime juice
 ¼ cup cilantro (chopped, optional)
 1 jalapeño (sliced, deseeded, optional)
 ¼ cup shallot (roughly chopped)
 1 tsp ground cumin
 1 cup water (+1 cup, start with one cup)
 1 pinch salt (optional)

1

Add all ingredients to a high-speed blender, starting with 1 cup of water. Blend on high until smooth.
