Zucchini Bread Smoothie (Green Smoothie/ Thickie)
Here in the UK we actually call Zucchinis, Courgettes but I thought I’d go with the American name for this smoothie as most of my readers are from that area.
Zucchini/ Courgette is another great vegetable that is actually a fruit which is why it goes perfectly well in sweet breads, puddings and this smoothie.
Zucchini bread is popular in the states but yet again this is another thing that I haven’t tried, but I get all the smoothie versions of all these great inventions so I get a sense of how they all should actually taste.
Zucchini is very low in calories but makes food lovely and creamy. Have you ever had a hummus made from zucchini? It works so well in place of chick peas and I actually prefer it to chickpea versions.

This smoothie is lovely and sweet despite it containing a vegetable (fruit!) and it is filling despite zucchini being low in calories. So it makes it a good vegetable for people trying to lose weight.
I’m currently going through a massive de-cluttering project of my home and especially my loft. My husband and I have carted loads of boxes of books, DVDs and CDs from one house to another and since having a baby haven’t even looked at them. So we decided to either give them to charity or sell a few so that other people can benefit from them as there’s no point in them sitting wasting away in a loft for the rest of our lives. It’s so freeing when you have a massive clear out of your home. It feels like a massive burden has been lifted in a way. I think the stuff in our lives drags us down and can have a big impact on our stress levels.
I’m also in the process of writing a 7 day diet plan which will help people lose weight and regain their health. I’m really enjoying that so I hope to bring you more information about that in the near future.Print

Get results like this...Hi Katherine,
I just wanted to tell you I completed the 7 day detox and I feel so great.
I have lost 6lbs, do not feel like I need more my morning coffee, the flushing of my facial skin from rosacea has dramatically reduced and I am so excited to wake up each morning and make a green thickie for breakfast!!
I am a stay at-home, homeschooling momma of 3 littles and at times so busy I would forget to feed myself!
I would go most of the day without eating and then snack on random things.
I gained 60 pounds the last 6 years during pregnancy.
I have lost 30lbs but recently plateaued and have felt so frustrated.
I’ve tried everything from paleo and keto to the point where I didn’t know what to eat or how much and felt like even eating fruit was bad for me which thankfully it’s not!
What a game changer for me. Thank you for sharing a simple but effective program.
I’m so excited to continue another week with this plan! Thankful Stephanie
