Blueberry-Cucumber Smoothie



Barely Adapted From Vegetarian Times

The last few days have felt like fall around here: rainy and a little cool.  We’ve been wearing sweaters and jeans almost as often as not, but we still have plenty of delicious farm fresh veggies to work our way through.  A couple of weeks ago, I discovered this recipe just in time for huge shares of cucumbers from our CSA.  It’s now a favorite request of Nora’s and I wanted to share it with you before summer ended.  Hopefully you have a few more good weeks left in cucumber season; it looks like we may be running out of time here on Nantucket!


  • 2 large garden or lemon (or a mix) cucumbers, peeled, seeded, and cut into chunks
  • 1 cup vanilla yogurt
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.  Be smarter than me and place the cucumbers in first — then you won’t have to stop to push everything down.  Additionally, smoothie can be frozen into Popsicle molds for a delicious and healthy alternative to store bought treats.  Serves 3-4.
