15 Smoothies in 15 Days, Day 13: Berry Refreshing Smoothie

I’ve ha a hankering for blueberries and cucumbers lately, and we finally got to the grocery store yesterday, so I grabbed some. I’ve had my eye on a cucumber blueberry smoothie for some time now, but haven’t had the ingredients to make it. Since I finally had them, I figured today’s the day.

I decided to make this one with coconut milk, blueberries, cucumbers, and lemon juice because it looked easy and creamy.

It. Was. Disgusting.

Seriously. So gross. It wasn’t sweet at all and I could hardly taste the blueberries because the cucumber taste was overpowering. So was the taste of coconut and lemon, but not in a good way. Maybe I did something wrong? I don’t know. But I left it sit for a minute and came back and it looked like there were chunks on the top so I’m thinking the coconut milk curdled.

But, I can’t just post a smoothie fail, right? So I used the ingredients I had left to make this one.

It’s still not my favorite, but it was much better. Plus, it was refreshing and different from the desserty ones I’ve been making. Tim liked this one a lot because he’s not a huge fan of creamy smoothies, so I’ll call it a success.
