Green Smoothie Recipes

For this last recipe, I tried to recreate one of my favorite summertime cocktails – the mojito! Because, alcohol. Just kidding, there’s no actual alcohol in this smoothie recipe, but go ahead and add a little dip of zee ol’ bottle if you want and I won’t tell anyone ;)

My personal recipe for mojitos contains muddled cucumber and mint, so I decided to go a little nuts and add both to the smoothie. It may sound a little funky to put cucks in a smoothie, but trust me, it works. Would I lead you guys astray?! Not when it comes to recreating cocktails I won’t ;)  

Enter to win some Salba Smart chia seeds of your own! Two winners will receive a bag of whole and a bag of ground chia seeds.
