Can we safely call this the “Superhero Sipper” smoothie? Well, the great thing is that we don’t need to ask for permission to praise the healthy powers that fruits and vegetables offer! This green smoothie is a refreshing blend of cucumber, apple, kale, ginger, mint, and lime, and it will save the day…and potentially your health. This incredible combination of ingredients contains some impressive health benefits that will make you feel like a superhero.

A Little About The Ingredients

  • Persian cucumber: These cucumbers are crunchy and crisp, providing lots of water to help you replenish bodily fluids. It also contains vitamin C, which works to enhance the health of your skin.
  • Kale: The mighty, powerful super green goddess of the smoothie world. Kale is naturally rich in iron, protein, vitamin K, folate, magnesium, and other antioxidants that help contribute to glowing skin and better immune function. Just make sure that you discard the thicker stems, otherwise your smoothie will have a bitter taste.
  • Apple: For a slightly tart yet sweet flavor, we recommend that you choose a Granny Smith apple, but you can opt for the apple of your choice, especially if you have one on hand already. Apples provide lots of fiber, which helps to keep the digestive system functioning smoothly. It also helps you stay full between meals.
  • Ginger: Offering a spicy kick that’ll get your heart pumping and your metabolism fired up, ginger makes for a wonderful addition to this smoothie. Exhibiting anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and antibacterial properties, ginger may help reduce inflammation and pain in the body.
  • Lime: This is the zesty zinger that adds a burst of citrus to this smoothie. Believe it or not, fresh lime juice helps promote alkalinity within the body, despite containing citric acid. Lime juice is rich in vitamin C and other antioxidants that may help fight off colds and infections.
