Optional Smoothie Variations & Tips

This pear smoothie with cucumber can easily be modified and changed to suit your preferences and needs.

I love developing smoothie recipes because it allows me to test and taste numerous different variations of each recipe.

If you fancy something different or want to boost nutrition further, below are some tested options that you can try:

  1. To make this smoothie completely vegan-friendly, swap the honey for maple or agave syrup.
  2. To add protein without impacting the fresh flavor of this weight loss cucumber smoothie, add a scoop or two of Collagen powder. (Or try my collagen smoothie recipe).
  3. Boost the antioxidant properties by adding 1/4 tsp of Matcha powder.
  4. To make the smoothie richer and even more filling, add a tablespoon of nut butter. I tested almond butter, and it worked great.
  5. If you don’t have chia seeds, you can use shelled hemp seeds or oats instead. (Or try my hemp heart smoothie).

Recipe Tips:

  1. Do not peel the skin of the cucumber and pears. Pear skin is edible and contains many nutrients. The same applies to cucumber.
  2. Avoid blending for too long, otherwise you may get a foamy smoothie.
  3. Start by adding your most difficult ingredients to blend first. These are for example cucumber and pear. The closer they are to the blades the better they will be incorporated in your smoothie without bits.
