One of my new obsessions is adding zucchini into my smoothies. I discovered that frozen zucchini adds a thick texture without modifying the taste of any smoothie. I used to add one frozen banana into each of my smoothies for that creamy texture. But bananas can be relatively high in natural sugars, carbs and calories. Don't get me wrong, I love me some bananas. But if I want to have two smoothies a day, or a sliced banana with my oatmeal, I want to refrain from eating like three of them a day! That's why I was super excited to discover the magical zucchini. Check out my simple and healthy smoothie recipe below!
1 raw frozen zucchini (wash, cut into cubes and store in the freezer)
1/2 frozen banana
