The cucumber smoothie is a sweet yogurt drink which is very popular across South Asia and the Middle East. This delicious drink is easy and very quick to make. On their own, cucumbers are very refreshing but our smoothie will really wake your taste buds. We used a combination of cucumber, milk, plain yogurt, kale leaf, and apple. It may seem odd but the taste of this can only be described as heavenly. Truth is, the cucumber will actually thicken the smoothie. It also adds potassium. It is truly a secret weapon. Prepare a huge batch of smoothie and pack in a Vaya Drynk and enjoy an ice-cold treat with colleagues!
