Smoothies are standard fare around here all year round, but they never taste so good as in summer. So I thought I’d do a series of posts featuring four favorites. They’re recipes I developed for Cooking Light Magazine that run the gamut from mega-nourishing to sweet treats. All will fill the bill for cooling you off on a hot summer day.
This first smoothie is ideal right about now since it features cucumber, a summer garden staple that is especially cooling. This recipe is a gentle introduction to “green smoothies” if your kids are accustomed to fruity ones.
