I’m not the only smoothie maker around here! My sister has been doing some experimenting also! Lucky for me, she gave me a tasty tip!
15 oz can peaches (with juice.)
4 baby zucchini (they’re so darned cute!)
1/3 cup vanilla yogurt
I will only buy canned fruit if it’s in fruit juice. Make sure you look for that when you’re in the store. You don’t want the stuff that’s in “heavy syrup”. I pretty much just tossed all of this in the blender and mixed it on high. It was peachy! No, really, it tasted a lot like peaches. Which is a-ok for me! I think I could have tolerated a few more zucchini…next time!
*A one cup serving of zucchini contains over 10% of the RDA of magnesium, a mineral
proven to reduce the risk of heart attack and stroke. Zucchini also provides folate, a
vitamin needed to break down the dangerous amino acid homocysteine, which – if
levels in the body shoot up – can contribute to heart attack and stroke.
