Zucchini Bread Smoothie Recipe by Green Blender

Zucchini Bread

Ingredients

  • 1 medium yellow zucchini - chopped
  • 1 pear - chopped
  • 1 tsp mesquite powder
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup walnuts
  • 1 cup vanilla almond milk
  • 1 cup ice

Zucchini bread, what a wonderful thing. Tastes like dessert but has a bunch of zucchini hidden in it. This smoothie does not disappoint. Rich and creamy and full of nutrients. Mesquite has a district sweet, nutty flavor that complements the walnuts and zucchini well. The powder is ground from the pods of the mesquite (or algorroba) plant. This plant is found in the arid parts of North and South America. Mesquite is high in protein, low on the glycemic index –meaning it won’t spike your blood sugar. It is gluten-free and a good source of calcium, iron, lysine, manganese, zinc, and potassium.

Walnuts add a certain richness you can’t get from other nuts. Try these Walnut-derful smoothies: Pancakes with Maple Water or the Shiro Plum Crumble.
