What Type Of Pickles Should I Use?

If you are a pickle lover, you will know that there are numerous different pickled cucumbers. 

I love using sweet dill cucumber pickles. 

I prefer use sweet ones with sugar in the pickle juice because it makes the smoothie taste less sharp.

Purely vinegar-pickled cucumbers are too strong and overpower the smoothie.

But of course, you can experiment with different pickles!
