Blueberry sauce was stacked in my fridge and I had a strong craving to make something with it. While exploring Pinterest I found an interesting blend of blueberries with cucumber. I never thought they both could complement each other so well. Although the original recipe used frozen or fresh blueberries, I made it with  blueberry sauce instead,and the result was just delicious.

Blueberry Cucumber smoothie is a sweet, light and refreshing blend perfect for breakfast or a healthy mid-morning snack. It is full of antioxidants and therefore, it is a very healthy alternative to most drinks.

Ingredients:

  • Blueberry (fresh / frozen / sauce) – ½ cup
  • Yogurt – ½ cup
  • Honey – 2 tablespoons
  • Lemon juice – ½ teaspoon
  • Vanilla essence – 1 teaspoon

Instructions:

Place all ingredients in a blender, blend until smooth.

I am trained to be an IT professional. I served National University of Sciences and Technology (NUST) for six years after graduating from the same university. As long as I can remember, cooking good food has been my passion and it makes me happy. My cooking lessons were a bit unusual though. Back in the day when digital did not mean much, my father would record cooking shows (knorr ka kitchen, kaukab khuwaja and Zee Khana Khazana – Chef Sanjeev Kapoor) for me to watch endless times later on, before trying the recipes out. I would make brownies and cold cake almost every day while my mother was asleep. This was my way of surprising her every evening. My mother cooks amazing food too and I have tried many of the recipes written in her recipe book. I draw inspiration from a number of chefs from televised cooking shows such as Late Chef Farah, Chef Rahat, Chef Mehboob, BBC Food, Masala TV, Chef Shai, Chef Sharmeen, Master Chef Australia and my ultimate favorite Chef Shireen Anwer. I would not be as good a cook I am now without passive guidance from each one of these.
