This smoothie literally does taste like zucchini bread. When I took the first sip of this smoothie, my tastebuds could identify every single flavor that was blended together.

We pretty much have all heard of adding leafy greens to smoothies but have you considered veggies like zucchini. I recently started adding this vegetable to my smoothie with the plethora of zucchini I’ve been picking up from the farmer’s market.

Before I add zucchini directly to my smoothie, I chop, steam, then freeze them. Last week, when I was meal prepping, I made a little impromptu video of meal prepping my zucchini for smoothies along with a few other smoothie prep tips.

Ps. Why does the freeze-frame shot always have to be so awkward! haha!

I’ve adapted this recipe with ingredients I had on hand and also making it a little easier to whip up quickly for any day!
