This delicious smoothie from nutritionist Natasha Uspensky is super cooling for after a hot workout—and it’s loaded with amazing antioxidants, omega-3's, and anti-inflammatory properties.  

Ingredients (Serves 2):

1 organic cucumber, peeled
1 cup fresh or frozen organic blueberries
2 tbsp fresh mint leaves
1-2 tsp raw agave
1/4 cup walnuts
1/2 cup filtered water or nut milk (or more, if you like your smoothies a little thinner)
A few ice cubes (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

After an early career as an opera singer and performing artist in New York City, Natasha Uspensky discovered her true passion in the world of holistic health and nutrition. She created her wellness and lifestyle site, The Organic Beauty, in 2009, and then followed her love of holistic health to pursue continued education in nutrition in 2010. She launched her own business and holistic health brand, NU Health & Wellness, in 2011 and has built a thriving private practice and client-base at the popular Ethos Collective Wellness.
