Low Carb Zucchini Blackberry Smoothie
You might not think that frozen zucchini in smoothies would be a good fit but I promise, it’s amazing! Zucchini is a great source of vitamins B6, vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, riboflavin, potassium and manganese so it adds many health benefits to your shake without altering the flavor. It’s also a great way to add some creaminess without adding a lot of carbs — it’s low in fat and high in water content. I always add it in if I’m making a lower carb, higher fat shake. It’s easy to slice it up and stick in the freezer before it goes bad. So if you don’t get to making those zucchini noodles, just toss them in the freezer and throw them in your next smoothie!
Here’s a great low carb zucchini blackberry smoothie:
1/2 c frozen zucchini slices
1 cup spinach
1/2 c blackberries
2 tbsp protein powder of choice
1 cup (or more) almond milk
Try it out — I know you’ll love it!
