A Simple Green Smoothie that Hydrates

Most days I put many of the ingredients in this smoothie through the juicer (except the avocado, that’s a major no-no because you will not receive any juice from it!), but today I felt like making this fresh and light smoothie for a snack, and I’m so happy that I did!  This smoothie is a great source of hydrating fruits and vegetables like celery, cucumber, apple and kiwi and would make for a great summer or warm weather snack to help you beat the heat and stay hydrated.


This smoothie is also a good source of many nutrients, including:

  • Vitamin C: Kiwi, leafy greens
  • Folate: Greens
  • Potassium: All of the vegetables and fruits
  • Quercitin: Apple skin
  • Gingerol: Ginger
  • Monounsaturated fats: Avocado


  • 1/2 cup (125 ml) water
  • 1 apple
  • 1 kiwi
  • 3 stalks celery
  • ½ cucumber
  • ¼ avocado
  • 1 in (2.5 cm) piece of ginger


  1. Wash all produce well.
  2. Core apple, peel kiwi, chop celery and cucumber, and peel ginger.
  3. Add all ingredients to blender and blend on high for 45-60 seconds or until well blended.
