My absolute favorite thing about smoothies is that you can pretty much throw anything in and they'll still taste amazing. They're a great way to get a whole bunch of nutrients quickly and efficiently when you're on the go or even when you're just craving a sweet treat!
When my dad generously shared the harvests of his amazing little garden, including a ginormous zucchini, my first concern was being able to use the produce before it went bad. To prevent this from happening with my zuc, I cut up the zucchini and froze half of it to throw in my smoothies (yes, you're reading this correctly - zucchini in smoothie).
Today's smoothie recipe is below and includes a nice sized handful of frozen zucchini (skin on). Abundant in antioxidants and inflammation-fighting nutrients, it's the perfect addition to my (almost) daily drink.
