This was very tasty. It was nice and thick and very sweet in a good way. I couldn't really taste the cucumber but typically can't taste a little celery or carrot added to a smoothie either. I made a 1/2 recipe which yielded 1 serving and not 2. For 1/2 the recipe I did 1/2 cup of frozen blueberries 1 small frozen sliced banana 1/4 cup sliced English cucumber. I didn't bother to peel it. It doesn't have a tough skin 1/4 cup of Trader Joes Greek nonfat vanilla bean yogurt 1/4 cup of water and 1 ice cube. I blended in my Vitamix blender about 30 seconds on speed 10 and 20 or so seconds on high. Just needed to tamper it a bit. Calories came to 175 as typed above and using 1 small banana. I will make this again. TY Read More

This smoothie went down easy but I wouldn't say I really enjoyed it. For me it needs to be sweeter. Maybe my banana wasn't ripe enough? If I make it again I will probably add more banana maybe some strawberries and see if that helps. Read More

I was very hesitant about the cucumber in this smoothie but it's just barely detectable and actually gives it a really fresh taste. I can see making this on a really hot day to cool off...it's that refreshing. Since the calorie count is so low I actually drank 2 servings (cutting the recipe in half for just me). Read More

I was happy with how this turned out. I didn't have any cucumber so I used strawberries instead I thought it still tasted really good. It was a nice treat to have after a long day at the beach Read More

When I was making a smoothie I realize I didn't have any bananas so I used one cup of frozen strawberries instead of a banana. I also added one Hersheys chocolate bar blended it altogether and it was great. I suggest using have a small cucumber too much cucumber it can make a wonderful smoothie we'll lets say not so wonderful! Read More

I will definitely make this smoothie again. The ingredients are every day ingredients that I always have in the house! Everyone who tried it loved it! I didn't peel the cucumber causing it to taste a lot like cucumber (which was actually VERY refreshing). Read More
