SUMMER SMOOTHIE SERIES: CUCUMBER APPLE MINT COOLER

Cucumber Apple Mint Smoothie/ MOMS KITCHEN HANDBOOK

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.

    Katie, this is just what I’m craving these days. Fresh, bright and delish! I love your combo here… cucumber, apples and mint…. heaven.

    I hope you and your adorable brood are enjoying the summer. I can’t believe it will be over soon:(

      Thanks Erin. I’m still in vacation mode, but reality hits soon. Can’t wait to get home and get a peek at your book.
