So many smoothie recipes feature banana, but you can use frozen zucchini and some avocado (both technically fruit) to achieve that same consistency without the added sugars. Simply chop a zucchini and freeze the pieces in a container or baggie. In addition, coconut water naturally tastes sweet but is full of minerals and nutrients and has a low glycemic index. This smoothie is full of fiber and healthy fats and great for anyone looking for a lower glycemic load.

Ingredients:

  • 1 ½ cups coconut water
  • 1 cup sliced and frozen zucchini
  • ½ avocado
  • ½ cup frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tbsp almond butter
  • 1 tsp hemp seeds
  • a pinch of sea salt

Directions:

  1. Place all ingredients in a high-speed blender and blend on high until smooth and creamy. Enjoy!

Prep time: 10 minutes
