Blueberry Cucumber Smoothie

The following is a very quick and simple Paleo recipe for a delicious blueberry cucumber smoothie. It might seem like an odd combination, but it’s truly delicious. Even though cucumbers are technically and botanically a fruit, they are one of the rare ones to be more on the savory side of the spectrum so they are often considered and prepared as a vegetable. A lot of people do not like to mix fruits and vegetables, because of the conflicting sweet and savory tastes, but cucumber is quite neutral in taste and it reduces a little bit the sweetness of the blueberries.

Ingredients

  • 2 large cucumbers, peeled and diced;
  • 1 cup coconut milk;
  • 1 cup frozen blueberries;
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice;

All you ever need to prepare this smoothie is a good blender. Throw all the ingredients in, blend until smooth, and your smoothie is ready to enjoy!

 

Congratulations Marcie & Lidia!

Two of our ladies will be representing CrossFit Coastal this year at Regionals & Finals. Lidia Beer will be making the trip out to California again this year to compete in the Finals and Marcie Wells will be competing at the Regional level. Good job to all of our athletes who participated – everyone put it all out there and its exciting to see everyone’s progress. I’m looking forward to another year of training for the next CrossFit Games. Details about the events can be found here
