This is the BEST smoothie ever – fresh, filling and incredibly tasty. If I were you, I’d try this before any of the others.

¾ cucumber, sliced
2 tablespoons torn fresh mint leaves
juice of 2 oranges (add the flesh if you want a thicker smoothie)
½ ripe avocado, peeled and destoned
4–6 ice cubes
1. Place the cucumber, mint and orange juice in a blender and whiz until smooth. Add the avocado and whiz again, adding a little more juice if the mixture becomes a little thick and your blender struggles.
2. Pour into glasses over ice and serve with a garnish of fresh mint.
Cucumbers are great for detox as they’re diuretics and so help you to avoid water retention and flush toxins out of the body.
