Smoothie Variations And Recipe Notes

You can experiment with this recipe as you wish, or try some of my tested suggestions below:

  • Peppermint Extract: If you don’t have fresh mint, you can add 1-2 drops of peppermint extract.
  • Citrus Twist: For a sweeter smoothie with a citrus flavor, use orange or grapefruit juice instead of coconut water.
  • Swap The Pineapple: You can use bananas or mango instead of pineapple!
  • Add Some Healthy Fats: 1/4 avocado, a tablespoon of chia seeds, or a tablespoon of nut butter can help add healthy fats and make the smoothie more filling.
  • Boost With Protein: If you are not avoiding dairy, add 1/2 cup of yogurt.

Best Time To Drink This Smoothie

This ginger and cucumber smoothie has done wonders for my skin.

I have been drinking it for breakfast 3 days in a row every other week for 8 weeks now.

I recommend that you drink this smoothie for breakfast for the next 3 days, and see how your body reacts. 

I like to drink this smoothie after a weekend of over-indulgence, it helps me get back on track. 

Feel free to experiment with drinking it during other times of the day and see what works best for you!
