Cooling Mint & Cucumber Smoothie

This smoothie is an instant chiller with its subtle coconut and mint. The colour perfectly sums up the taste – light, creamy, and fresh! If you wanted to go hardcore green, you could always add some baby spinach leaves, too.

You may replace the frozen mango with banana if you’re that way inclined. Both are relatively high-sugar fruits, but each also adds a creamy texture and delicate flavour to the drink – so it really is worth it!
