1 c. water
1 T. sunflower seeds
l large zucchini, peeled and chopped
1 T. raw cacao powder
pinch of salt
1 T. mesquite powder
1 T. lucuma powder
1 t. vanilla
couple of dates (or sweetner of choice, I think raisins would even be good)
Throw everything in the blender and blend until smooth. You may need to add a little more water depending on your zucchini. The ones from my garden have a higher water content than the ones I buy at the store. Once it's smooth, add some ice and blend a little more.
Daniefon's ThoughtsBy daniefon
This morning I was going to make my regular smoothie and realized I was out of spinach, so I decided to try one using a zucchini, which my garden is producing very prolifically right now! The result was a rich and creamy milkshake that really only has 1 T. sunflower seeds! I am trying to cut back fats and sugars for the summer. Also, after searching high and low I finally found alcohol free vanilla on the cook's vanilla website. I think this would make a good base smoothie for adding maca, spirulina, msm, coconut oil etc.
