Summer in Sacramento routinely hits triple digits so I’m always looking for a way to cool off. What better way than with what I eat and drink? This mint cucumber smoothie with blueberry is seriously one of the best!

The mint is super refreshing and tingly. The cucumber is hydrating and cool. And the blueberry adds a tart sweetness to the smoothie. Plus, the combination with yogurt makes for a great cucumber smoothie any time of day. I’ll often whip this up for breakfast, and add a scoop of protein powder.

I’ve even been known to make these as a post dinner drink with a splash of gin! Especially alongside my watermelon smoothie with jalapeno and my coconut smoothie with sweet corn.

Recipe Notes

SEASONED SECRET

Be sure to deseed your cucumbers before dicing! Blended, the seeds will get slimy and cause the yogurt in the smoothie to curdle.

VEGAN

You can omit the yogurt or swap in your desired dairy-free yogurt or milk.
