Blueberry & Zucchini Smoothie

Add a splash of colour to a dull winter’s morning with this vitamin-rich smoothie. The level of ‘green’ is perfectly complemented with a touch of sweetness, and results in a healthy morning beverage that goes down easy.

Ingredients

1 cup frozen blueberries

2 cups rice unsweetened milk

2 medium zucchini, remove ends, and peel 1/2″ outer skin (save this for a homemade zucchini lasagna or zucchini noodle pasta!)

2 romaine leaves

1 tbsp maple syrup

Method

Wash zucchini; chop off and discard ends. Using a vegetable peeler, remove the outer 1/2″ skin.¬†Save these pieces for a homemade zucchini lasagna or zucchini noodle pasta – or keep it real simple and just drizzle with salt, pepper, olive oil, balsamic vinegar and eat it for lunch.¬†

Remove 2 pieces from your bouquet of romaine leaves and rinse with water.

Place all ingredients in a high powered blender and mix until smooth.

Then pour, sip, and smile.
