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!





  • 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 


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! 

*OPTIONAL ADD-INS: For extra healthy fats/more creamy texture add 1/4 avocado.  For extra protein, add 1 scoop vanilla or plain protein powder.
