Soothing Summer Smoothie

I usually keep my smoothies basic with banana, berries, and some nut butter.  During the summer though, it’s nice to use seasonal produce to create something quite soothing and fresh.  Cucumbers are awesome for digestion (packed with fiber and water), help cool the body, and are loaded with vitamins and minerals.  Bananas, great source of potassium and fiber.  Pineapple is packed with vitamin C and contains bromelain, which helps the body absorb food nutrients.
