Incredible Smoothies by Tracy Russell. "Cucumbers add a crisp, refreshing flavor and texture to fruit and green smoothies. Keep cucumber smoothie flavors simple by using delicate base fruits such as pears or apples and flavor fruits such as melons, papaya or orange.
Cucumbers are a good source of vitamin C and also contain vitamin A, molybdenum, folate, manganese, silica, potassium and magnesium. Cucumbers are an excellent source of dietary fiber.
Cucumbers are known for their ability to improve the complexion of skin and studies suggest that they can even help lower blood pressure."

Incredible Smoothies by Tracy Russell. "This delicious smoothie creation was sent to me by Chrissy. Itís green, itís sweet and itís got a heaping dose of minerals for you!
This smoothie makes about 12 ounces (depending on the size of the mango and cucumber you use) and it has a delicious tropical fusion flavor. The pineapple and mango blend nicely with the cucumber and spinach for a refreshing health drink.
Cucumber contains erepsin, an enzyme that helps to digest protein. Their skin is also very high in minerals and they make a great low calorie addition to your smoothie.
Mangoes are a great source of fiber. This smoothie contains about 25% of your daily recommend value!"Submitted by CD12287012
My kids love these, and so does my husband! I have served them for breakfast alongside scambled eggs (the kids energy lasts way longer on this meal than on cereal). I have even served these with supper (we've done burgers with "shakes" (really smoothies). I pour the leftovers into dixie cups and put a small piece of foil on top and then pop a popsicle stick into them and freeze for healthy popsicles! (No High Fructose Corn syrup...Yay!). My kids love these, and they are quite filling too! Submitted by MARLEENFLOOD
