This Low Carb Cucumber Green Tea Detox Smoothie is a refreshing way to begin a day! It's sugar-free, dairy free, gluten free, paleo and fabulous!
I don't know about you, but certain days require different kinds of breakfast choices.
Mondays are never easy after a fun weekend. Truth be told, I sometimes indulge in a little too many snacks or just tend to eat more than usual compared to a weekday. I always need something light and refreshing to kick boot my body back into the swing of things.
Even if you're not much of a tea person as I am not, the point of the green tea here is to provide a little caffeine kick to your smoothie combining it into breakfast as well. I don't feel the green tea has a strong flavor at all and the creamy avocado and refreshing cucumber are the stars in this drink.
Being that yesterday was Father's Day and I of course am feeling the Monday blues and my body is sluggish and certainly not ready to start the week ahead, I make this.
And all is well in the world.
I feel better and my body thanks me.
Obviously this green tea smoothie can be enjoyed anytime, but on Mondays it is all the more appreciated!
