Jessica Alba sure knows a thing or two about fitness.

After all, she's always sharing her workouts on social media, inspiring us to stay on track. Moreover though, the co-founder of The Honest Company is dedicated to living a clean lifestyle, so it's no surprise that she is a green-juice fiend. She even shared her go-to green juice, which is chock-full of leafy greens and low-cal cucumbers.

Since cucumbers are one of the most refreshing summertime ingredients, we consulted celeb nutritionist Elissa Goodman to whip up a Jessica Alba-inspired recipe that will keep you feeling slim (read: not bloated).

"Cucumbers are very low in calories, yet filling at the same time. They slow down digestion, helping you feel fuller longer and provide a cooling response in the body (perfect for summertime)," explained the pro.
