Blueberry Zucchini Smoothie Breakfast Criminals

This Breakfast Criminals recipe was originally published on mindbodygreen.com.

Have you considered putting a zucchini in a smoothie? I tried it recently and now no breakfast smoothie goes zucchini-less. A great source of fiber, manganese, antioxidants, vitamins C, B and A (with barely any calories — 21 per cup!), zucchini are practically tasteless, which makes them an amazing addition to any blended creation.

Go grab some local zucchini at your farmers market, and get blendin’! If it’s organic, you don’t even need to peel the skin off. You’ll love this blueberry zucchini smoothie!

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup zucchini
  • 1/2 cup frozen wild blueberries
  • 1/2 cup spinach
  • 1-2 pitted dates to sweeten
  • 1 tablespoon chia seeds
  • 1 teaspoon Sunbiotics probiotic powder (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon almond butter (I recommend using raw sprouted one)
  • 1 cup almond milk

Toppings:

  • 1 tbs almond butter
  • 1 tbs wild blueberries

Directions:

Blend all of the ingredients until smooth. Top with almond butter (Dastony raw sprouted almond butter is the best!) and wild blueberries.
