This refreshing smoothie is made with cucumber and kiwi and gets a kick from ginger-flavored kombucha and fresh cilantro.

Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine cucumber, kiwis, kombucha, yogurt, cilantro and ice cubes in blender; blend until smooth. Serve immediately.



Tip: Look for kombucha tea near other refrigerated teas in natural foods stores and well-stocked supermarkets. Kombucha is available in many different flavors--for this smoothie we like the taste of ginger kombucha the best.

Yuck is right! If you've ever wanted to drink saltless garlicless tzatziki sauce then this smoothie is for you. I followed the recipe exactly. Truly horrendous. Not at all sweet. I tasted the kiwi before throwing them in the blender and they were ripe and delicious. I'm really sad that I wasted such wonderful flavor in this awful drink. Maybe it would've been salvageable if I'd had some falafel and pita bread. If you still want to try it I'd suggest doubling the kiwi and halving the yogurt. Or better yet do like the other reviewer suggested and try a different recipe. It can't possibly be as bad as this one. Read More

Yuck! I tried this because I love cucumbers and kiwis but I guess not together. I had never tried kombucha before and didn't know it was so sour. I left out the cilantro because I'm not really a fan but don't think it would have helped the taste of this smoothie much. There are better smoothie recipes on this site. Try them instead. Pros: Easy to concoct Cons: Awful taste. Read More
