Cucumber Avacado Shake

 

IMG_2535

My favourite summer time drink! I am regularly at the Vancouver farmers markets, usually selling my Chai and Spices. At every market, I will trade tea for various produce. Cucumbers being one of them during season. I really love this shake below and it is easy to make and carry especially when I am busy and have no time to stop to eat at the markets. This works really well with my diabetes prevention diet too. Enjoy!

Ingredients

  • 1 Cucumber
  • 1 Avacado
  • 1 cup sunflower sprouts (or any other sprouts)
  • 1/4 cup hemp seeds
  • 1 cup mint leaves
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 teaspoon Trudy Ann’s Dhana Jeera
  • Dash of salt and lemon juice to taste
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds (mix at the end)

Method

Add all ingredients plus water in a blender (except for the chia seeds). Blend until smooth and creamy. Pour into a mason jar. Stir the Chia Seeds into the shake. Transfer into the fridge and drink when cool.
