Post-delivery of George, I looked like I was still pregnant! For three to four days I couldn't get my bloating down. I searched everywhere for ideas and found this on Pinterest, a cucumber, ginger and coconut water recipe for a blended anti bloat drink. While that was enough to sound good for me-I wanted to play with the recipe for my own version and add a little more bulk to it.
I added Greek yogurt, protein and more coconut. This, honestly, might be my favorite smoothie ever!
At first, I was slightly perplexed by the idea of cucumber in a smoothie, but it's amazing! I promise, it is not as strange as it sounds.
You'll gulp this down so fast it's not even funny! It is also full of good fiber, healthy fats and protein.
