  • half a cucumber (chopped into 4 pieces
  • 1 stick of celery with leaves attached

*Lük Beautifood uses these ingredients in our signature Lip Nourish™. You can try every shade of it for $10 (and get a $10 voucher).

Method

Simply put all ingredients in a Vitamix and increase speed to high. Blend for about 1 minute until smooth and creamy. (You may need to use your tamper stick or pulse the mix to begin with, depending on what order ingredients went in). This recipe makes 3 good-size jars, so pop any spares in the fridge for the next day. They will last at least 48 hours.

Tips and tricks

  • Ice gives the smoothie a fabulous melt-in-your-mouth texture
  • Keep the smoothie chilled as high-powered blenders add a lot of energy when mixing and can warm it up!
