1 cup water
1 tablespoon sunflower seeds
l large zucchini (peeled and chopped)
1 tablespoon raw cacao powder
Pinch of salt
1 tablespoon mesquite powder
1 tablespoon lucuma powder
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dates or sweetener of choice (I think raisins would even be good)
1. 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.).
2. 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 tablespoon of 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.
