Apple Cucumber Green Smoothie

Autumn is a great time to try new apple recipes.  A wonderful way to start the day is with a vibrant apple green smoothie packed with vitamins and minerals.  Today let’s talk about an apple cucumber smoothie with spinach, ginger and local honey. Yum!

This baby will feed your body with more than the daily need of vitamins K and A and more than half of the daily need of manganese and folate. This smoothie is also rich in fiber, magnesium, iron, vitamins C and E, B vitamins, calcium and potassium.  All of this with a great wake-up taste.

Remember to use raw local honey and not the fake stuff sold in some supermarkets.  It has great taste and has healthy benefits too. Just read the labels. Pure honey doesn’t need additives. For vegan, replace honey with agave nectar or maple syrup.

  1. Smoothies always have seemed like a wonderful idea and yours looks scrumptious — but I have problems with them because they leave me hungry … they go down too smoothly (ha) …. and I don’t feel like I’ve eaten. I need something to chew i guess.

  2. This apple cucumber green smoothie sounds so good, but healthy too. I am anxious to try it. Thank you for sharing at Tasty Tuesdays.

  3. Love all the wonderful, healthy ingredients in this refreshing smoothie, Carol. The ginger would add such a nice kick as well. Sharing! Thank you for sharing, and for being a part of the Hearth and Soul Link Party. Hope you are having a great weekend!

  4. Apples and cucumber sound great together. Thanks for sharing at the What’s for Dinner party – and have a wonderful week. Hope we see you next Sunday too!

I love to make new friends and get to know you.
