Cucumber
Smoothie

This refreshing smoothie is great to boost your health: coconut water and cucumber are great for hydration, for flushing toxins and they both contain lots of vitamins; pineapple and lemon boost the immune system; pineapple, parsley and lemon are anti-inflammatory and lemon also supports the gastrointestinal system. The smoothie is not only healthy but it tastes great, not too sweet and not too tart, the perfect balance.
