Smoothie Take Two

I knew exactly what I wanted for lunch before I was even home from the pool.  I desperately wanted to eat the rest of the leftovers from Pea Daddy's Jambalaya but I knew there wasn't much.  I would require something a little bit more.  I quickly formulated a plan for a smoothie out of the non-existent smoothie ingredients I had on hand.

Banana. Cucumber.

But you know, I love cucumber in my smoothie and I knew I could make it work.

I searched the pantry for something else to include and stumbled upon some swag I didn't realize I had.
I was also grateful when I realized the only non-dairy milk we had on hand was coconut milk.  I knew it would add some fun flavor to this mix.
This was my first taste of Silk's Pure Coconut and I was shocked by the coconutty flavor.  For some reason I thought it would be more mild.  It was good, don't get me wrong.  It is perfect for a smoothie.  I'm just not sure I would love it in my oatmeal or over my cereal every day.

Delicious, satisfying and filling!

The smoothie was fresh, and not over powering.  It was light and creamy and totally sippable! Over look the fact that there are at least 4 servings of veggies in this monster, including a full cucumber...and just dive right in!
