Zucchini in a Smoothie?!

Zucchini in a smoothie?  YES, that's right! It's so delicious and tasty and I was surprised I couldn't really taste the zucchini itself, I was more memorized with the beautiful purple color from the blueberries and the creamy cold taste.  Zucchini is excellent for boosting immunity as it's a great source of vitamin C.  It even has a bit of protein, and is excellent for fiber which will help to promote satiety and hunger as well as helping with overall digestion.  Get this recipe and try it today!

ZUCCHINI IN A SMOOTHIE!

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1/2 zucchini (fresh or freeze ahead of time into cubes)
  • 1/2 cup blueberries (fresh/frozen)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tbsp Flax Seeds
  • Squeeze of 1 orange 

DIRECTIONS:

1. Add fresh or frozen zucchini and blueberries to blender. Add water, flax seeds and squeeze the juice from 1 orange into your blender.  Blend on high for 60-90 seconds until smooth. 

*TIME TIP: Wash and slice zucchini and put in the freezer in a sealed bag, mason jar or large glass container.  This helps time saving and also prevents any zucchini from going bad in the fridge!
