Zucchini Bread Smoothie (With 4 Options)

Zucchini Bread Smoothie (Green Smoothie/ Thickie)

Zucchini Bread Smoothie

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.

Ingredients

Green Smoothie (Optional):

  • 2 cups Spinach OR if you run out of fresh greens, add 2 scoops of Amazing Green Powder for an extra healthy green boost.

Thickie/ Green Thickie (Optional):

Instructions

  1. Blend the ingredients in the order listed. 
  2. If you are making a green smoothie blend the greens and liquid first and then blend the rest of the ingredients.  This creates more space in your blender.
  3. Add more water if required to thin it out.
  4. Substitute any of the ingredients for whatever you already have.
  5. If your smoothie is too warm, you can cool it down in the fridge or freeze some of your ingredients before blending. 
  6. You can also replace half of the liquids with ice.  Add the ice at the end. It is better to add frozen ingredients at the end to cool the smoothie down.

  2. Mmm, I will love this! Sprint2TheTable has a lovely recipe for a zucchini bread smoothie that I drank about three times a week for a few months after I discovered it!

  3. My boyfriend and I love love love zucchini bread so we had to try this recipe. We agreed, it’s by far the best green smoothie we had (but we didn’t try all your recipes yet).
    I can’t wait for summer when zucchinis abound and are cheap.

    • That’s great. I’m so glad you both liked it so much. I’ve just realised that I’ve posted this recipe when zucchinis are not in season for most people. Here in the UK they seem to stay the same price and are available all year so I forget we actually have seasons at all with all our imported food!

  4. Oh you had me at the title! I bet this would taste just like zucchini bread. I’m making it for breakfast tomorrow. Excited to see you hosting Healthy Vegan Fridays now! Would you be interested in linking this up at Raw Foods Thursdays? http://www.glutenfreecat.com/2013/01/raw-foods-thursdays-13113/

  5. I’m allergic to bananas. Can you suggest a good substitute? It looks delicious and I love zucchini bread!

  7. I tried this yesterday and it was amazing!!! And what a great way to use up the abundance of zucchini in our garden. Can’t wait to try some more of your recipes now. Thanks for all the wonderful smoothie recipes and ideas, it makes it easy to enjoy nutrition for both adults and children.

  8. Omg PLEASE say you’ll post the recipe for zucchini hummus! I am a huge zucchini fan. I seriously could just eat whole gardens of the stuff and I can’t imagine how amazingly delicious a zucchini hummus would be!

  9. Do you cook the zucchini first?
