Cucumbers are one of my favourite ingredients to use in shakes and smoothies, not just because they add so much great flavour, but also because they’re so darn good for you. These amazing green veggies are a great source of pantothetic acid, as well as copper, manganese, biotin and vitamin B1. Cucumbers help fight inflammation, contain numerous antioxidants, and even contain phytonutrients which have anti-cancer properties.
